Product description

With over 24,000 definitions, including everyday idioms and expressions, here is the perfect tool to support your Gaelic language-learning! "Essential Gaelic Dictionary" contains mutated forms of nouns, verbs, adjectives, and prepositions integrated into the main alphabetical structure. This enables you to trace the standard form of a mutated word without difficulty. Irregularly formed plural nouns are systematically included, and each Gaelic verb is complete with its first person singular form in the present tense. In addition, many of the prepositions governed by various verbs are included. Throughout, the dictionary is illustrated with examples of language in action, with an emphasis on Gaelic idiomatic usage. The book also features a short introduction to some of the relevant features of Gaelic grammar, including the conjugation of verbs and prepositions, the comparison of adjectives, forms of personal pronouns, and a summary of the main rules of consonantal mutation.
