Subject: RE: BS: Sowhain?/Celtic New Year
Cornish died as a spoken language in the 18th century, but there was enough recorded material to make it possible to resurrect it later on.  Nowadays there is a small nucleus of people who have learned to speak it, and have deliberately brought up their children to be bi-lingual.  Galicia, so far as I know, has no surviving Celtic tongue.
