From a July 2004 conference in Edinburgh, scholars of Celtic languages and literatures present 16 papers, five in Gaelic, on the language, literature, and cultural impact of Scots Gaelic over the centuries. Among their topics are kingship in classical Gaelic panegyric for Scottish chiefs, the emergence of Sorly MacLean's poem An Cuilthionn, dialect variation in Gaelic relative clauses, and new evidence about Gaelic in Canada from an old census. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
