Bloavezh mat! / Happy new year!

I know, I know. Here at Blogging Brittany, things have been pretty quiet. Well, silent. For many months. It was never my intent to drop the blog so suddenly and so completely. Life just took over for a while.

Yes, I’m back in the US. And yes, I’ll be posting more here on the blog in the new year. There are stories that I haven’t had a chance to share and background on Breton that I still want to give you all. And, yes, a few more photos. And more about the language–of course!

Best wishes to all of you in the new year. May your languages be spoken, may your culture be appreciated and enjoyed by many, and may we all have a peaceful, healthy, and happy new year!

I'm a linguist and a writer, with a passion for the Breton language, Celtic languages in general, and endangered language communities who engage in revitalization efforts. I've published some articles about the Breton language situation in some academic journals, and I'm planning to publish more in the near future. I spent most of the last decade moving around--first to Santa Barbara (grad school), then Colorado (teaching), and then Brittany (researching the Breton language revitalization movement and improving my Breton speaking skills)--and now I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area. Even though I am living far from Brittany at this point, I still keep in touch with my friends and colleagues in the Breton-speaking world, and I'm still involved in language revitalization issues.
