Summary

The Isle of Man is undergoing a Manx Gaelic revival. The number of Manx speakers has gone up tenfold in the last twenty years. The government-sponsored Manx Heritage Foundation (Undinys Eiraght Vannin) and the Manx Gaelic Advisory Council (Coonceil ny Gaelgey) regulate and standardise the official use of Manx and have combined to commission this definitive guide to the language: Practical Manx. The book covers the grammar, spelling and pronunciation of Manx Gaelic, rendered accessible to readers of all levels of competence. An accompanying CD of recordings provides a unique opportunity to observe intonation patterns and other features.

Author Biography

The Centre for Manx Studies is a unique partnership between the University of Liverpool, the Isle of Man Department of Education, and the Manx National Heritage Foundation.
