A truly brilliant book on what - until now - has been a difficult topic for learners and teachers alike. Michael Bauer has taken what is a very complex subject - the pronunciation of Scottish Gaelic - and presented it in a lively, witty and informative way. With this authoritative book, even those with little or no knowledge of concepts such as the Phonetic Alphabet will discover exactly why the sounds work the way they do. It will help learners unlock that elusive door to understanding and speaking the language well. And it will be invaluable for Gaelic teachers who have become accustomed to a feeling of dread in response to that inevitable question regarding some matter of pronunciation - "But why?" Ishbel Murray, Gaelic Immersion Course Teacher, Stow College Glasgow

Lest that sound intimidating I think that few people are learning Gaelic because it is easy. It is the complexity that makes it such a beautiful and interesting language. The author said it best: "[Gaelic pronunciation is] a bit tricky to get right but when you do, [the results] are stunning!" The sounds are explained as well as is possible for those without the linguistics background.
If price is a concern, check amazon.co.uk--it might be cheaper there.
This book will answer every question that you had about Gaelic pronunciation and every one that you didn't know that you ought to have. Buy it!
