Scottish Gaelic: A Comprehensive Grammar

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract / Description of output

Scottish Gaelicː A Comprehensive Grammar is a definitive description of contemporary Gaelic.

The volume presents a definitive description of modern Gaelic grammar, attending to both idealised usages - as typically taught in formal education - and more colloquial forms. Core chapters include useful observations about dialectal and register differences, such as variations in inflection, pronunciation and word forms. The book also demystifies nuances of the language that many users find opaque, according to recent research. In each chapter, the most important, basic information is presented first (e.g. standard verb conjugations), followed by increasingly detailed information for more advanced users. This way, the book addresses the diverse needs of its intended audience.

Brimming with authentic examples, the volume accommodates readers of all levels, from complete beginners to professional linguists. It is both an ideal textbook for structured coursework and an indispensable companion for independent study.
