  • Scottish Gaelic in Twelve Weeks

    Roibeard O Maolalaigh

    Product Code: AHLDQ
    Other
    "Scottish Gaelic in Twelve Weeks" has been written both as a self-tuition course for beginners and also for use within the classroom. You may want to learn Gaelic because of a general interest in Celtic or Scottish history and culture, or because it was the everyday language of your ancestors. The cynical observer may wonder if the exercise is worthwhile, when only one and a half per cent of Scotland's population speak the language. However, Gaelic is far from dead; in some parts of the Highlands and Western Isles it is the everyday language, and it represents an important part of the United Kingdom's cultural mix. There are Gaelic-learning classes in almost every area of Scotland. Each lesson in the book contains some essential points of grammar explained and illustrated, exercises, a list of new vocabulary (with a guide to pronunciation, in International Phonetics notation), and an item of conversation.

  • Everyday Gaelic

    Morag Macneill

    Product Code: AHGXG
    Paperback
    Since English is also spoken in the Gaelic-speaking areas, communication in Gaelic is not so much a matter of necessity as of choice and interest. This book, therefore, covers more than just the phrases needed by an outsider in a foreign land - it also dips into the chatty, the personal and domestic aspects of the language. It ranges from simple words and phrases to the more complex and idiomatic. Hopefully it will serve the non-speaker of Gaelic who wishes to utter the odd phrase and get an idea of the language, the person whose parents spoke Gaelic and who understands it but is unwilling to 'try his hand', and also the keen learner, who might like to gain a greater scope of everyday phrases than those contained in grammar books of the language. Obviously the whole of the Gaelic language cannot be contained in one book. Therefore a selection has had to be made of those words and phrases most likely to be useful in everyday situations, for example meeting and greeting, aspects of travelling, the weather and eating and drinking. If this selection has been successful, the reader will find the book not only informative but also interesting. Everyday Gaelic was originally published by Gairm Publications in 1984 and had been reprinted many times. This is an expanded and updated edition which feature up-to-date orthography.
