Introduction

Cantabrian (Cantabrian: tantxi Kântabriia / Goidelic orthography: tançhi Cantabrîa) is a Celtic language spoken in my planned entity of Cantabria for Roblox's Pilgrim Islands Reborn. Although a Q-Celtic language like Celtiberian, it is closely related to both Gaulish and the Brythonnic languages. Being the only surviving Hispano-Celtic language attested, scholars has made unsuccessful attempts to group Cantabrian into either the Goidelic, Britonnic or Gaulish branches resulting in it's classification as an stand-alone group.
