We also invite contributions to a Celtic workshop ‘The structure, function and evolution of Celtic Languages’ in any of the following or related areas:

  • Description and (formalist/functionalist) analysis of Celtic languages from a synchronic or diachronic perspective (in the area of phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics),
  • The future of Celtic languages (sociolinguistics, contact linguistics and language planning),
  • Issues of translation (the challenges of translating into and from languages of limited diffusion).
