Scope and Contents

Marked 'Mackinnon A8' and noted thus in previous historical records. This notebook is near empty, with some initial notes on the linguistic differences between Goidelic and Brythonic languages. Breton is referred to in this ntoebook as 'Armoric', and Scots is referred to as 'Scotch'. These may have been the start of a text or lesson plan on the historical and comparative linguistics of Goidelic and Brythonic, but it does not have much to offer, other than maybe some insight into Mackinnon's thoughts on the matter, and contemporary terms.
