Gaelic Language Overview:
The Gaelic language is a language used in the United Kingdom. It can be classified as Indo-European, Celtic, Insular and Goidelic.
Regions Spoken: Gaelic (Scottish) is spoken in North and Central counties of Ross, islands of Hebrides and Skye, Glasgow, Australia, Canada and the USA.
Population: There are about 58,000 people who speak Gaelic (Scottish) in the United Kingdom, as of 2003. The total population of people who speak Gaelic (Scottish) in all of the countries is about 62,000 (this means that 3,500 people speak Gaelic-Scottish outside of the United Kingdom).
Alternate Names: Gaelic (Scottish) is also called Gàidhlig, Gaelic, Scots Gaelic, Albannach Gaidhlig, and Erse.
Dialects: Here are 3 dialects of Gaelic (Scottish); East Sutherlandshire, Church Gaelic and Perthshire. Church Gaelic is like the Perthshire dialect, 200 years ago, and is different from the spoken dialects. Also East Sitherlandshire dialect is very different from any spoken dialect that it creates a communication barrier.
Brief History: In the 1990s there was a boost of interest in Scottish Gaelic due to the establishment of Scotland’s own Parliament for the first time in 300 years. In communities Scottish Gaelic is used in homes, churches, and for social purposes. In the bilingual areas, Gaelic is the first language for the instruction of most primary subjects. Gaelic is taught in primary schools and the literacy rate for Gaelic, as a first language, is 50%, as of 1971. It was also used in the Bible from 1801-1992.
