The Celtic language family consists of three languages still spoken in the British Isles (Irish, Scottish Gaelic and Welsh), one language still spoken in Brittany (NW France), two languages that died out within the last few centuries (Cornish and Manx), and several languages spoken in Classical times that we know relatively little about (Gaulish, Ligurian, Lepontic, etc.). Pictish may or may not have been Celtic.
