5.0 out of 5 stars Gaelic Dictionaries, 2 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the classic Scottish Gaelic-English Dictionary, researched by Edward Dwelly over a period and first published from 1901-1911. It remains very valuable for looking up words of all kinds and parts of verbs and it contains clear meanings and explanations. Of course it does not include more modern words. Any student of Gaelic will need to obtain a more recent dictionary of good quality and probably one which is Gaelic-English and English-Gaelic. Nevertheless Dwelly's dictionary is still an important resource in the study of the language and in understanding the vocabulary. It has been reprinted on a number of occasions, and is available in hardback and paperback. A book of this size, which is to be used as a reference book and perhaps well used, is certainly best obtained in hardback. This is definitely a dictionary which should most probably be bought by the serious student of Gaelic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ancient words, 2 Jan 2004
This review is from: Illustrated Gaelic-English Dictionary (Hardcover)
It is an excelent book for students and self-learners around the world, that, even far away from home, can keep alive the ancestral blood, culture and, most of all, the language that tells ho we are. It is a very complete study about this ancient, dificult and complex language.
