This book tackles the thorny issue of Scottish Gaelic pronunciation in an engaging and clear manner without loosing track of the bigger picture and the fine detail. It was written with three main reader groups in mind:
It assumes no prior knowledge and takes the reader on a complete journey through the marvels of the Gaelic sound system. It comes with over 120 sets of exercises, numerous sound files that can be accessed via the publisher's website, both technical and entertaining illustrations and a recipe for some Christmas baking.
No single solution will ever exist which will solve all the problems facing the learners of Gaelic when it comes to pronunciation but, without doubt, this book will help learners and teachers of the language take a large step forwards.

At Edinburgh University he focussed on phonology, language acquisition and modern Gaelic and graduated in 2002 with a degree in Linguistics and Celtic Studies. His career in language teaching goes back a long time. Although he started in the academic arena, he made a conscious decision to abandon an academic career in favour of improving the teaching of Gaelic pronunciation - and the necessary resources - to adult learners.
The first development was a Gaelic resource website but in light of the encouraging feedback from many users and learners in the global learners' community about the site, he embarked on the 8-year journey of producing this book. Since those early days, he has focussed on honing his methods and materials to suit adult learners and today is called upon frequently to help both groups and individuals who are struggling with the sounds of Gaelic.
He lives in Glasgow and, as part of the portfolio of his Gaelic language services company, teaches pronunciation through workshops all over Scotland and abroad.
