Sure. I didn't even really touch on that one! ;)
Personally, I just call em all "languages".

Isn't that what I said? I've said it before,
anyway. Though I'm not sure "continuum" is quite
the word either. There's just too many far ends,
and Scotland has at least three of them (two
Germanic and one Celtic)! ;)
