In the course of my duties I have had occasion to collect a considerable amount of information relating to the Language Revivals in various European countries, and as the information is not being published officially, it has been suggested that it might prove of interest to this Society, particularly at the present time, when so much attention is, being focussed on the revival of Gaelic in An Saorstat. The countries covered in my -inquiry were Finland, Norway, Wales, Scotland, Czecho-Slovakia, Poland, Austria- Hungary and Brittany. Since it is clearly impossible in the course of a short paper to deal at all adequately with more than a few of these, I have chosen the first three named countries. In my selection I have taken into account similarity with An Saorstat, as regards size and distribution of population and other circumstances and conditions which may specially affect the problems of language revival and of bilingualism.
Description:Read before the Society on Thursday January 23, 1930.
