I found this subdivision on Indo-European, and merely put it here in order to archive it:


  1. Central
    1. Gaulish
      1. Arvorec (Old, Middle, New)
    2. Brythonic
      1. Manoeg
  2. Peripheral
    1. Celtiberian
    2. Goidelic
      1. Gaeilg (Old, Middle, New)

I assume we should take the list in the article, and not the list quoted above, for true? --IJzeren Jan 02:17, 10 November 2005 (PST)

The other way around, actually! I left the one on the article page as it records *here*'s Celtic languages as well. Perhaps we should swap the two over? Also, this page has been on my "To Be Tarted Up" list for ages. I will get around to it!

Also, for what it's worth, the Insular/Continental divide vs. Peripheral/Central divide also splits scholars *here* too- with more traditionalist scholars subscribing to the former theory. As *there* Brythonic languages are somewhat thinner on the ground, IMO Bethisadan scholars would have come up with the Peripheral/Central divide first, and the Insular/Continental divide would just be laughed out of the water.
