The Celtic language family consists of three languages still spoken in the British Isles (Irish, Scottish Gaelic and Welsh), one language still spoken in Brittany (NW France), two languages that died out within the last few centuries (Cornish and Manx), and several languages spoken in Classical times that we know relatively little about (Gaulish, Ligurian, Lepontic, etc.). Pictish may or may not have been Celtic.
Please submit sites that deal totally or in part with some aspects of general Celtic linguistics or with those of more than one Celtic language, including those dealing collectively with the "Gaelic languages" (Irish, Scottihs Gaelic and/or Manx). Sites that cover Celtic history, archaeology or literature do not belong here.
University departments devoted to Celtic languages/cultures. Departments devoted to specific Celtic languages (e.g. Welsh) should be classified under the specific language.
