Comment #1: Culturally Neutral?
Curtis W Franks (Mon Jan 18 08:13:50 2016)

I am not sure that this word is culturally neutral. But according to the
definition of brito in Lojban (as opposed to some senses of "British" in
English), and by viewing territory and cultural influence, it mostly works.

It is better than literally translating "Anglo-Celtic", I opine. Would we
use "anglyjoi(rit?)skoto"? Should "-rit-" be included? It only pertains to
Great Britain, not Ireland. But "skoto" alone might be too large. Does
"-angly-" narrow that meaning down sufficiently (without "-rit-")? Does
Ireland come into play implicitly? Etc.
