This is the third volume in a ground-breaking series of studies on the social history of the Welsh language. It contains fourteen chapters, all written by acknowledged experts in the field, together with many explanatory maps and figures. The volume seeks to make a contribution to our understanding of the complex relationship between language and community in the long nineteenth century. The linguistic geography of Wales is placed firmly within the context of the Celtic language family and the broader central European experience.
