This review is from: Practical Manx (Paperback)
An excellent book for the student of Manx. You couldn't learn Manx from the start with it, so don't think it's a "Teach Yourself Manx", but it really explains all the fine points of grammar with examples from the Bible, from extracts of written Manx and from native speakers. It's a fine reference book.
My only criticisms would be an overuse of technical grammar terms (although there is a good glossary you do have to keep looking up what's a copola or a gerund), and a slight bewildering order (pronunciation comes at the end, nouns are somewhere in the middle way after the finer points of lenition).
The accompanying website sound clips are a very useful resource. Very good value for a reference aid.
