Brythoneg is a standardised, modern form of Neo-Brittonic (late Common Brittonic) intended to serve as a Pan-Brythonic conlang.

Unlike the modern Brythonic languages, it is not intended to be shoehorned by political boundaries or arbitrarily tied to modern national identities, in order to make the language more accessible to the many English and Lowland Scottish people of Brythonic heritage.
