A Generative Grammar of Breton

A study aimed at establishing a generative-transformational description of spoken Breton (Tregor dialect), with primary emphasis on syntax. Little research has been done on the subject of the syntax of spoken Breton, so the results of this study will be of interest to linguists and Celticists. The Breton language, a Celtic language related to Welsh and Irish, is spoken by about a million people but is rapidly disappearing.
