Scottish Gaelic language
Found in 138 Collections and/or Records:
Notebook belonging to Alexander MacBain of Inverness. It contains newspaper cutting of articles, written by Alexander MacBain, entitled 'The Gaelic Language: A Historical Sketch', 'Celtic and Old Gaelic Literature' and 'Old Gaelic Saga and Ballad Literature'.
Marked 'Mackinnon A10' and noted thus in previous historical records. This appears to be notes in preparation for, or a draft of, a paper on love songs in the Gaelic song tradition.
Notebook containing notes on modern Gaelic poetry between 1600 and 1790(?), Late 19th or early 20th century
Marked 'Mackinnon A12' and noted thus in previous historical records. This notebook is full with notes on what appears to be a discussion of modern Gaelic poetry between 1600 and 1790 (according to the front cover).
This appears to be a notebook in which Mackinnon has cut printed extracts of Ossianic poetry from other sources, and inserted them into this notebook. There are some handwritten notes alongside some of the printed extracts, which may be in preparation for study or discussion of the Ossianic poetry.
This appears to be a notebook perhaps used for teaching and researching. It contains a list of words found in manuscripts, along with their modern Scottish Gaelic word, and sometimes a translation or explanation in English.
Mackinnon appears to have written some notes, perhaps in preparation to publish a textbook that he had possibly expected to title 'Celtic Philology'. This is the second part, which he has titled 'Morphology'. Although part of a series on 'Celtic' linguistics, much of the notebook's contents appear to focus on the morphology of Scottish Gaelic, and includes nominal and verbal morphology.
