Abstract

This study applies some newer quantitative typological indicators to elucidate relationships and evolution within the Celtic language family. These indicators are distinctive from earlier typological indicators in that they require no morphosyntactic analysis but rely purely on rank-frequency or type-token statistics. Descriptively, the work extends the typological analysis of Tristram (2009) on Celtic, which excluded three of the languages (Manx, Cornish, and Scottish Gaelic).
