II. BR ETON AND COR NISH S TUDIES By Humphrey Lloyd Humphreys, formerly of the University of Wales, Lampeter 1. Br eton A large number of items deal with social and institutional aspects of Breton. Ronan Barr L ée , s Langues celtiques, entre survivance populaire et renouveau élit, isR te ennes U.P., 234 pp., has a title which aptly en capsulates the situation of Breton, its main subject, although the situations of Welsh, Irish and Gaelic are also discussed for comparison. It is a thorough and dispassionate presentation of defensive and promotional organizations and their strategies. Its organization is thematic, rather than language-specific. It has a socio-economic, institutional and political orientation. The book is seriously f lawed by its failure to discuss the well-documented demographic situation of these languages, solidly census-based in the case of three of them. Nevertheless, it must not be forgotten that Breton is well-served by the clearly organized, and in some ways more searching, investigations of F. Broudic (see below), whose masterly use of market-research techniques is illuminated by his active insider’s observations. The key role of self-confident native speakers is also ignored.
