    Superimportant book by Jackson, the source for language changes in the early brittonic languages This is a book in two parts The first part gives a slightly problematic history of britain, taking into account the language of the people all the way through The problem is that he has the typical victorian bias, and although he just about avoids the idea that all the britons were slaughtered, he wants them to be magically speaking british very soon afterwards His ideas of early breton settlemen Superimportant book by Jackson, the source for language changes in the early brittonic languages This is a book in two parts The first part gives a slightly problematic history of britain, taking into account the language of the people all the way through The problem is that he has the typical victorian bias, and although he just about avoids the idea that all the britons were slaughtered, he wants them to be magically speaking british very soon afterwards His ideas of early breton settlement, wholesale abandoning of urban areas, i disagree with His idea of vulgar latin being quite weak until c5, and then becoming stronger and influencing borrowings into irsih and welsh are clever later places in britaincan be devided into areas based on when they were conquered less oldwelsh place names.The second part is a very complicated discussion of how and when grammatical changes took place but the most important part is the chronology of sound changes of these, lenition in c5, and wgw in c8 are the most importat There are also all the troubling cornish and breton z and ds explained His chronology of the languages of britain british c6, seperates into west brittonic and south west brittonic, also primitive cumbric old welsh c12, old cornish c14, old breton c11, middle welsh c14 15, middle cornish c17, middle breton c16 17Primitive irish c2 4, archaic 7 8, old 8 10, middle 10 13, modern 13 present, scottish gaelic, no periods, c15 on, manx c17 on3 quotes the funnest part of the book, emphasising Jacksons historic skill Indeed the whole tale of Cerdic and Cynric would make nonsense of the story of the peace after Mount Badon amusing lenition in modern latin dialects, and the date of the settling of Brittonic orthography, before it was used in vernacular texts When the loosening of ariculation which was rthe cause of lenition began to affect internal consonants in the native British speech of these people, it inevitably affeccted also, and equally, their Latin pronunciation thus, welsh, breton and cornish look regular becausew they are entirely spelt as latin, which was pronounced like them with lenited internal syllabels This need not surprise us in this country, for many of us still remember the unreformed pronounciation of Latin once taught in our schools which produced such monstrosities as meite, sparitjuai, oreishio for mater, spiritui and oratio Similarly, the American who pronounces duty as dudi makes catena into kadene Taking all the evidence togetherm, it is a fair assumption that those charactristics were indeed established in the sixth century and probabl early seventh century, while the whole Brittonic church was still united and therefore that a tradition must have existed from that time, fortified by enough aLatin documents with British place and personal names and perhaps glosses to keep the principles of Brittonic orthography settled, right down the period of our oldest Old Welsh, Cornish and Breton sources the latin animal and plant names borrowed into British, how and why Admissus equus , asinus, bestia, cattus, columba, draco, leo, mulus, ostrea, piscis replacing native escos , porcellus, serpens, vipera, viverra,
