Additional background on
Welsh (Cymraeg or y Gymraeg, pronounced [k?m'r???g], [? g?m'r???g]), is a member of the Brythonic branch of Celtic spoken natively in Wales (Cymru), in England by some along the Welsh border, and in the Chubut Valley, a Welsh immigrant colony in the Patagonia region of Argentina.
There are also speakers of Welsh throughout the world, most notably in the rest of Great Britain, the United States, Canada and Australia.
Due to the increasing use of the English language the numbers of Welsh speakers had been declining for decades. However, following a number of measures, including the introduction of the Welsh Language Act 1993, Welsh has enjoyed a strong revival in recent years and has an equal status with English in the public sector in Wales. It is the most spoken Celtic language.
