Gaelic-English/English-Gaelic Dictionary

  • This is a nice little dictionary for looking up the common Gaelic words.

    However if you are looking for phrases to help get you buy in the Gaelic areas then this isn’t the dictionary for you.

  • This little dictionary packs a lot of punch into its pages. By just browsing through the Gaelic section and reading the definitions, I found hundreds of wonderful phrases and very helpful words. This works wonderfully to add a little flair to fiction stories taking place in Celtic areas such as Scotland. I definitely recommend this book.

  • This dictionary appeared out of the blue, and didn’t seem to be known to any of my Scots acquaintances. It may have been rushed… anyway it is better than “Abair” which may have been a pocket dictionary, but which contained few words I ever needed (unlike Buchanan’s it does have an excellent verb & grammar section).

    Some of the words are given in a form that’s not… e.g. “broadcasting” is given as “craobh-sgaoileadh”, whereas you’ll find the contracted form “craoladh” getting used much more often. “Craobh-sgaoileadh” is rarely used. But at least it gives “broadcasting” and other modern terms, which is more than can be said for many Gaidhlig dictionaries which have never been updated.

    Also the dictionary is inconsistent in the extreme. For example, if you look up something as basic the months of the year, you’ll find it gives some and not others. Why? There’s a few others, but I can’t recall them just now.

    This dictionary is cheap, which is its biggest advantage. It’s usable. It’s not perfect but at this price it’s not worth complaining.

  • This dictionnary is very easy to “browse through” it contains most usual, common words… everyday use words…. but it lacks on certain aspect… if you are expecting some expressions, and pronounciation, you’ll be dissapointed… But if your looking for a good, cute little pocket english-gealic gaelic-english dictionnary.. this is the book to buy..
