map shows the regions of the world where Breton is commonly
spoken (red circle). This
part of France is called "Brittany" ("Little
Britain"). Although Brittany is in the modern nation
of France, the people here are not French in descent. The
are descendents of refugees who fled Celtic Britain to escape
the Anglo-Saxon invaders of the fifth century. Breton is a
language from the Brythonic branch of Indo-European. It is
most closely related to modern Welsh
and the extinct Cornish
language, but it is also similar to Scots
Gaelic and Irish
