But I posted too quickly. Frank George Valoczy has just posted on
Conlang about his Brzhoneg (spelling?), the Latin-derived Celtic
substrate lang of Prydain-Fuin. This is too good an opportunity
to lose. So the Brzhoneg-speakers have held out, perhaps not too
well, against Standard French despite its being much less of a
language barrier, which suggests that maybe Occitan has held out too.
(I'm a modern American, and I favor multicultural states.
Maybe France *There* isn't quite so centralizing as *Here*: the
collapse of Occitan didn't really come till after the Revolution.)
