ISBN 3-8253-0925-8. The linguistic and other cultural contacts between English and Celtic languages have recently become again a focus of research, after relative neglect over many generations. The editor has been prominent in this revival as is amply testified not only by her teaching and publications but also by the two international conferences devoted to the topic. The proceedings of the first, published as Tristram (1997, AF 247), are now followed by those of the second conference of 1998, the volume under review. The range of the 22 contributions shows the diversity of ongoing research which is remarkable considering the relatively small number of anglicists that have a working knowledge in any of the Celtic languages. Tristram's introduction summarizes the main topics of the conference (18). Carroll's "Language contact from a developmental perspective" (917) is a succinct survey and helpful for general aspects in so far as contact phenomena are all historically unique.
