4.0 out of 5 stars Wealth of phrases to use in everyday situations, 14 Jan. 2001
This review is from: Everyday Gaelic (Gairm publications) (Paperback)
This slim book can easily fit into a back-pack so that it can be readily used. It is nicely organized according to topics, such as: traveling, eating and drinking out. Her sense of humor can be seen in her choice of phrases, such as on page 36 of the travelling section, "Stop nagging me" and "Do you want to get out and walk." These are indeed "everyday" phrases that are useable. She also includes phonetic pronunciation for those who may have a bit of trouble getting their tongues around such phrases as "An urrainn dhuit inseadh dhomh" (Can you tell me) whch is pronounced, "un oeren ghoot eenshugh ghoe..." Her introduction to the grammatical concepts of the language are enough to give the reader a feeling for the way the language works. Those who simply want a phrase book to help them get along as they pass through Gaelic-speaking Scotland will find that the grammar is not overbearing, and comprises a small section of the book, only 7 of the 110 pages. Although one can't use this book by itself to become fluent in the language, it is invaluable in learning vocabulary and in being able to get by with "everyday Gaelic."
