This dictionary is intended for learners of Gaelic - from beginners to university and college students. It gives generous coverage of the core of the language, but the inclusion of vocabulary from fields such as business and IT means that it will also be a valuable tool for all who require an up-to-date reference work. It contains a large amount of explanatory material, numerous examples of usage and idiomatic phrases and expressions. Many registers and styles are sampled, from the familiar (and occasionally the vulgar) to the formal and literary. Cross-references draw the user's attention to related words and expressions, and Scots equivalents are provided for a number of headwords. This dictionary has been fully read and checked with the support of The Gaelic Books Council.
