Description - The Gaelic-English Dictionary by Colin Mark
The Gaelic-English Dictionary fulfils a keenly-felt need for a modern, comprehensive dictionary. The numerous examples of usage and idiom in this work have been modelled on examples culled from modern literature, and encompass many registers ranging from modern colloquial speech, to more elaborate literary constructions. The many contemporary terms and idiomatic phraseology, often not available in other dictionaries, provide excellent models for easier language learning. In addition to the main dictionary, this volume contains twelve useful appendices, covering the various parts of speech, as well as more difficult issues such as how to express time, direction and numerals. The clarity of the design and layout of the volume will greatly ease the process of attaining mastery of the Gaelic language.
