daithi Fairwell to Scots Gaelic? (48) RE: BS: Fairwell to Scots Gaelic? 21 Feb 03


I visit the Donegal Gaeltacht every year for a summer school in Irish, and last year there was a Scots Gaelic speaker from Harris there. Whilst we were able to find many words in common, the spelling, pronunciation and sentence construction were so diffeent that the the spoken languages were not really mutually intelligible - although it was easier to work out the meaning form the written word.
