This small lexicon is not exhaustive, nor scholarly, nor doctrinal. It is not destined to scholars, but to give back service to all person of good faith wanting to know a little better her Gallic roots without pretension.


Some elementary rules of linguistics: unnecessary to know that the Gallic: - didn't use accents, - didn't differentiate the following letters - C / K / Q (Cernunnos = Kernunnos, ekuos = equos). - E / H (Esus = Hesus) or H = wet I, (arvernha = arvernia, braha = braïa) - G pronounces itself G: Genos = guenos - S / Z (brings in two vowels) - U / V (Vercingétorix = Uercingetorix, that pronounces himself Werkinguétorix " because " u " is pronounced " who " in the beginning and in the middle of word, sometimes oone in final). -  know that letters Y (= I) and W (= V). - doesn't exist THERE, but engraved pronounces himself like U/V/W that is to say Woo - so the same word, depending on whether it is written in Greek, runes, Latin or present alphabet, takes some very disconcerting shapes for the neophyte. So lygys = Lvgvs and is pronounced Loogooss

Well of the Gallic, as the Druids, aristocrats, diplomats and tradesmen knew some foreign languages more or less as the Greek or the Latin. Foreign words exist in some very previous Gallic texts before the Roman conquest.

Every tribe or nation, sometimes same every village, has particularisms to speak. So according to the place and even the time, the P sometimes turns and vice versa into C/K/Q, the D and the T, the K and the G make in the same way, etc. Under the Roman empire, a Latin rather deformed is used by the majority of the Gallic. But, concurrently, the local Gallic dialects subsist. This is how one recovers the Gallic texts written phonetically in Latin or in Greek. Our forebears didn't seem obsessed by spelling, the less that we can say!

It seems that it is necessary to admit that Gallic was far to be homogeneous in all Gaul, and that it was more a spoken language than written.

It often exists several spellings for one same word, without counting distortions owed to the local dialect influence. In same way, several words could describe the same concept.

Writing conventions. - Verbs are all given to the infinitive. Pronounce them “oh” as by an “oh” long noted - words used adjectival how solely are followed of the abbreviation - (Adj.) - The V letter was pronounced Who, rather than V by our Forebears. However as most between are accustomed us to write " Uercingetorlx " -, Vercingetorix " -, Ueleda ", Veleda ". Etc., the notation follows this modern habit, but exercise you to a right pronunciation

Composed words are formed by concatenation as following under

Esus + nertos  gives Esus’ force

Lugu Esus + genos born of Lugus

Belo + gnatos = Belenos ‘ son
