The course consists of continued study of the Old Gaelic language, and is an exciting option for students who are interested in exploring further the history of modern Scottish Gaelic, and/or curious about Celtic grammatical structures. We will read more complex texts in the original language. Any previous language study will be an advantage. Old Gaelic is the earliest form of a Celtic language which we can reconstruct with some certainty. It holds the key to the earliest vernacular literature north of the Alps, and is the earliest attested form of both Irish and Scottish Gaelic.
