About me in other languages.

I am fluent in Welsh and Irish, fairly competent in Scottish Gaelic and Manx, and have a basic knowledge of Breton and Cornish. My aim with this site is to learn more about these languages, to find connections between them, and to share that knowledge with you.

  1. I love this site. I am an American with an interest in Celtic languages and especially Proto-Brythonic and Welsh etymologies and cognates in non-Celtic languages. Keep up the good work! I will keep coming back.

  2. Simon, it’s been a pleasure for me to have had an opportunity to assist you in whatever ways I could. You’ve returned the favor many times over with all of your assistance in my own efforts. You are literally the first web site I check each day. I always wonder, “what new language has Simon unveiled today?” There is always something new and fascinating to learn and discover here.

    I continue to marvel at the extraordinary level and attention to detail you have lavished on this site. It’s a remarkable accomplishment, and you have my congratulations.
