June 30th, 2021 :    Our thanks to the association "Bretagne Vivante"

Yves DONGUY

Yves DONGUY, who died in 2020, had bequeathed his entire estate to the association Bretagne Vivante, of which he was a long-time member.
    Among these assets was an important body of work on the Gallo language.

So that these works are neither forgotten nor lost, François de BEAULIEU, from the association Bretagne Vivante, contacted us to know if we could appraise them and put them in value so that the greatest number of people can access them.

In addition to the honor of being recognized for our work, it is with great pleasure that we will have at heart to perpetuate the linguistic work of Yves DONGUY by starting to publish it here before the end of the year.

Thanks to François de BEAULIEU and Bretagne Vivante for their trust!
