9781330329580: An Introduction to Breton Grammar (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from An Introduction to Breton Grammar

The principal object which influenced the writer in bringing out this small volume was a need - admitted to exist by not a few competent to form an Opinion for some simple exposition in English of the Grammar of the Breton Language, which would be of service to that large and rapidly growing section of the British race which desires an acquaintance with the literature and language of their Armorican relatives in Little Britain. Of this section a considerable proportion have been deterred by their imperfect knowledge of the third language hitherto essential to such acquaintance. And this definition of its scope may be said to determine the limits of its 'sphere of influence,' for the writer makes no pretence to have compiled a treatise by the mastery of which, the tyro could be justified in supposing him self fully equipped for the purpose of sustaining a con versation in the Breton language. It will rather seek to demonstrate by rule and paradigm - many of the former strangely familiar on t/zz's side of the Channel - the high degree of excellence attained by this ancient tongue, and its faithfulness to its Celtic origin; and that too, despite both its complete isolation from its con geners in Great Britain, as well as the repressive efforts put forth from time to time, directly and indirectly, to deprive this language of its very existence.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 98 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.2in.Excerpt from An Introduction to Breton GrammarTo find a parallel to such an arbitrary and autocratic measure as that issued by the French Minister of Spiritual Affairs, and dated September 29th, 1902 (whereby over one million Breton people are deprived of all effective religious instruction by the insistence that such instruction be given in French only), it is happily necessary for us in Great Britain to go as far back as the time of the Reformation; when the partially - understood Latin service book was withdrawn from the Cornish Church, on the excellent plea that all public worship should be offered in accordance with Apostolic precept - in a known tongue - at the same time with the utmost inconsequence the authorities imposed an English service book, hardly one word of which was intelligible to the Cornish people! That privilege which the Welsh were powerful enough to secure to themselves by statute law (v. Elizabeth; xiii. xiv. Charles II. ), the Cornish, on the petition of their Anglophile gentry (on commercial grounds proh pudor!), as well as on account of their relatively small numbers, lost. May the Breton people escape the fate of their Cornish cousins, for jam proximus ardet Ucalegon!About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
