Description

http://unicode.org/cldr/trac/browser/trunk/common/main/br.xml#L8969
contains:

8969 <posix>
8970 <messages>
8971 <yesstr>y</yesstr>
8972 <nostr>n</nostr>
8973 </messages>
8974 </posix>

This should probably be fixed to look like:

8969 <posix>
8970 <messages>
8971 <yesstr>Ya:y</yesstr>
8972 <nostr>Ket:k</nostr>
8973 </messages>
8974 </posix>

according to this information of Thierry Vignaud <thierry.vignaud@…>:

tvignaud> The Breton language basically has a 4 form system for
tvignaud> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yes_and_no
tvignaud>
tvignaud> 1) Affirmative question:
tvignaud> "Dont a rit?" (Do you come?")
tvignaud> => Yes: Ya (ie I'm coming)
tvignaud> => No: "Ket" or "Ne zeuin ket" (ie I won't come)
tvignaud> (either just "ket" or repeat the verb in the negative form)
tvignaud>
tvignaud> 2) Negative question:
tvignaud> "N’eo ket brao an amzer ?" ("the weather is NOT fine?")
tvignaud> => Yes: "Geo" ("yes, it is fine") like "*sí*" in Spanish or "si" in French
tvignaud> => No: "Nann" > aka indeed it's not fine
tvignaud>
tvignaud> This removes the ambiguity that exists in 2 (eg: English) or 3 form systems
tvignaud> (eg: French)
tvignaud> Actually here, I'm not sure what would answer most English speakers to the
tvignaud> 2nd example :-)
