This map shows the regions
of the world where Manx was commonly spoken on the Isle of Man
(red circle). The Manx language died out entirely after World
War II, even though at one point all the inhabitants of the
Isle of Man spoke the ancient Celtic tongue. Manx comes from
the Celtic branch of Indo-European. It is closely related to
the Goidelic languages of Irish
Gaelic and Scots Gaelic.
It is somewhat more distantly related to the Brythonic languages
of Breton, Welsh,
and the extinct language of Cornish.
