The Essential English-Gaelic (Scottish)-English Dictionary

The Essential Gaelic (Scottish)-English Dictionary
or zshare:

In the present volume the aim has been to present as rich a cross-section of the Gaelic language as possible in the space available, giving due weight both to the new contexts of our times and to the riches of the past, as well as to both colloquial and more formal language.

The registers, styles and contexts represented in the dictionary include: vulgar, familiar, colloquial, formal and traditional words and expressions; examples drawn from modem poetry, modem and traditional song (an area that attracts many learners to the language), proverbs and sayings and, occasionally, placenames; the more common vocabulary of administration, politics and government, journalism and information technology also figures here.

The Essential English-Gaelic (Scottish) Dictionary:
or zshare:

This volume complements the same compiler's Essential Gaelic-English Dictionary, published by Birlinn in 2001. The intention has been to make available, in a format that is pleasant to handle, a generous proportion of "essential" or core Gaelic. For this reason much of the material given is common to the two volumes, and can thus be accessed from the starting point of either English or Gaelic.
