GUEST,Tommy Fairwell to Scots Gaelic? (48) RE: BS: Fairwell to Scots Gaelic? 24 Feb 03

From the census results i've seen, things are looking better for Manx too. There are 1,000 and something people who now claim to speak the language, not bad for a tongue that was on its way out a wee while ago.
From what i've heard of it, i could make a good lot out but it does have quite a few Norse influences.
Overall, i think that the three Gaelic languages (brón orm go ndearna mé dearmad ar Ghaeilge Mhanann sa teachtaireacht a sheol mé ní ba luaithe) are all going to pull through but we need to keep up the great efforts. Government funding for language schemes is essential, for example.
On the point, does anybody know what type of official recognition Manx has, from the island's parliament and from the british government?
