Welsh

Official language (with English) in Wales (Great Britain). Over 500,000 speakers, chiefly in Wales. Wales was monoglot until the 16th century when the Act of Union with England (1536) led to a rapid decline in the use of Welsh. Revivals of the language begun in the 18th century and continuing today have seen an increased number of speakers. Most first language Welsh speakers come from the north-west section of Wales.
