Your description about Welsh is making me very curious. I intend to find out more about it. Hope someday I can visit wales.

I grew up in Wales but in an English speaking area so sadly I speak very little Welsh.
If you do visit you will see Welsh on all public signs (and have the option to select Welsh when using an ATM ) but Welsh is only widely spoken in the north and west.

I read a great book about the Welsh language a few years ago and about the Welsh diaspora. Let me check my book shelves and report back here !

I think this is the book I had in mind. It is not exclusively about Welsh but there is a good chapter devoted to it.

Yes, actually, there's a chapter devoted to Boro (Bodo) language of North-East India.

Here I quote :

Quote:
How could anyone resist a language whose expression for 'slightly humpbacked' is gobdobdob ?
../..

Then :

Quote:
Boro is blessed with 20 "interjectional exclamative particles" to express everything from insult to affection, repentance to irritation, terror to sympathy.
