"Learning Irish" is an introduction to the Irish language. The product of many years of original
and scholarly research as well as much teaching experience,
it serves a double function: providing a sound approach
to the ordinary language learner and at the same time furnishing
the professional linguist with an authentic description
of the spoken language. The book does not presuppose prior
knowledge of Irish and gives thorough coverage of the grammatical
patterns of the language.
Texts and exercises are presented in an authentic, interesting,
conversational style and in carefully graded stages.
The learner is assisted in mastering the pronunciation
use of phonetic spelling and by a related DVD.
