The Breton and Welsh languages have a common origin but have evolved over the centuries. They are both Celtic languages. Invasions, repressions and close proximity to other languages have caused them to change. The evolution of Welsh and Breton can be divided into the following stages:
The Celtic origin Old-Breton and Old-Welsh: from the 5th century Middle-Breton and Middle -Welsh: from the 11th century Modern Breton and Modern Welsh: from the end of the 16th century Contemporary Breton and Welsh: since the 20th century
The survival of the Welsh and the Breton over centuries is outstanding. We can not let them die!
The Welsh and Breton are to entirely languages but we can find some similarities in the grammar and vocabulary.
