  • Press, Ian. 2010. 'Breton', Ball, Martin J. & Nicole Müller (éds.), The Celtic Languages, Routledge.


Il s'agit d'un portrait morphophonologique concis du breton. La syntaxe est amorcée en lien avec la morphologie.


 Préamble:
 "The following sketch of Breton is highly constrained, and abridged; it may, however, provide a useful point of departure and reasonably refl ect a once relatively very strong Celtic language. Imperative are firm measures creating a public and official presence for the language, the revival of widespread Breton-speaking among the young, and the strengthening of intergenerational continuity. Constraint implies the presentation of a ‘unified’ Breton, which is not necessarily impoverished and characterless. Breton is ‘felt’ to be one [?]. Much variation will be come across, but the language is there [?]."

Ce morphème a beaucoup d'allomorphes (kan-, ken-, kem-, kef-, kev-, kiv-, kom-, kon-...) mais pas kel-.
