The book referred to in newt's message is _Celtic Language; Celtic
Culture: A Festschrift in Honor of Eric P. Hamp_ (Van Nuys:
Ford and Bailie, 1989) ed. by A.T.E. Matonis and D.F. Melia
(yrs. truly) the article on blackbirds is by Maria Tymoczko of
UMass, Amherst & is very good.  Ford & Bailie is now based in
Boston (actually, Brookline, I think) because Pat & Chadine
Ford have moved there (Patrick Ford is now Professor of Celtic
at harvard), but the book was published while they were still
at UCLA and thus will probably be catalogued as Van Nuys for
place of publication.  There are many other goodies in this
volume & it is a steal at under $40 (I think that's right).
There are articles on virtually all Celtic languages which
have left remains (no lepontic, though).  For any linguists
out there, this volume has the only printed bibliography of
the writings of Eric Hamp.
