Our Program – Welsh And The Other Languages In The British Isles – How They Evolved
This subject is particularly intriguing when you think of the various groups of peoples who make
up the British Isles, We are lucky to have a serious student of the languages who is currently
studying Welsh with our own class led by John Good.
Angela Loewenhagen is a historical linguist and archaeologist who recently graduated with her
Master’s degrees in Historical Linguistics and Medieval Studies. She is currently working on a
project comparing Old English and the Scandinavian languages with Celtic languages such as
Welsh and Irish and the changes in those languages over time.
For this meeting, she will be discussing some of the language differences between English (and
other Germanic languages in general) and the Celtic languages, particularly Welsh. She will also
cover some of the main ways in which language changes can be transferred across cultures
and how this may have happened in the British Isles.
Let’s bring some more of those delicious refreshments to share - see you on the 4th!
