[[ Free pdf ]] Everyday GaelicAuthor Morag Macneill – Bilb-weil.de

This book is invaluable to learners, also fluent speakers and those already literate in Scottish Gaelic I wore out my first one during 25 years learning.You will turn to it often, and think of it as a friend This is not just a reprint but has a wee bit of update too. Very comprehensive guide to Gaelic, perfect for a beginner A useful wee book and very well set out Not used it much to date but will be very handy. I have been using this book in conjunction with Gaelic classes we refer to it a lot, and often our classes are based on sections of the book It is also a very useful ready reference for quickly looking up words phrases. 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 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 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 inand had been reprinted many times This is an expanded and updated edition which feature up to date orthography
