Breton (in its own language: brezhoneg) is a Celtic language traditionally spoken in western Brittany and also practised by groups of enthusiats in eastern Brittany (France).

This minority language suffers the lack of legal recognition and the domination of French. Nonetheless it is supportetd by a dynamic, cultural movement and enjoys a lot of creativity in music and literature.

The closest relatives of Breton are Cornish and Welsh.
