[edit] [view] Cumrogeg (Armorican)Spoken by the South Britons, in Dumnonia and Armorica. Survives as Cornish and Breton.
[edit] [view] Coproiei (East)Spoken by the East Britons. They were Gallo-Belgians in culture, who mostly spoke Latin anyway, due to the extreme levels of Romanisation. The dialect shared almost all of its sound changes with Gaulish. The largest difference is spirantisation intervocalically, rather than lenition. West cad vs East cath, and West cath vs East cath.
[edit] [view] Cumbrogeg (North)Spoken by the Britons of the Old North. The most conservative British dialect barring Pictish, it also innovated in several ways. It influenced Cumbric but that remains a largely West-Dialect language. Influence includes the -mb-, found in Cumbrogeg as cümber.
[edit] [view] Prydynyg (Pictish)Spoken by the Picts, who lived north of the Firth of Forth. A dialect of British, it was by far the most conservative, and just like its sisters was superceded by an invading language, Irish.
[edit] [view] Cumrogeg (West)Spoken by the West Britons. Survives as Welsh and Cumbric.
