Yikes, and forgive me; I seem to have forgotten the most important
of the Brithenig empire, GULP!! (head beating)... and that is that
there IS no Spanish, eh??? That the British and the Romance languages
have become absorbed in an important and influential empire early on?
Well, paint me inattentive and silly. Okay, I need more information
about the credo of these people. What was their early attitude towards
colonization? conquest? slavery? Sorry to be such a johnny come lately.
But it would explain a lot of my early questions if you would clarify
the basic premises of the Brithenig Empire succinctly and without
humiliating me too much! <G>
No French either? :-( No vive la difference?
