Manx was once the endangered list. Not the cat - the language. But now a new generation of young people, such as singer Ruth Keggin, is doing its best to breathe new life into the speech of the people of the Isle of Man.
"We want to make Manx relevant in the future, not something we are simply preserving from the past," said teacher Julie Matthews, who credits supporters like Keggin for helping to bring the language, from the Gaelic family, back into use. There are currently around 1,700 Manx speakers on the Isle of Man.
