LEACAG Grammar Guidance

As part of the 2016–2018 Bòrd na Gàidhlig-funded project, Leasachadh Corpais na Gàidhlig (LEACAG, Gaelic Corpus Development), members of the DASG team (working with colleagues at the University of Edinburgh and the University of the Highlands and Islands) were involved in drafting new, evidence-based grammatical guidance for learners and users of modern Scottish Gaelic. This guidance was the result of consultation with Gaelic language professionals and traditional speakers in the Western Isles, as well as on detailed study of relevant usage in Corpas na Gàidhlig.

In drafting this guidance, the research team were advised by the Comataidh Comhairleachaidh Cànain (a committee of traditional Gaelic speakers convened by Bòrd na Gàidhlig in 2015). The guidance addresses specific questions about usage and seeks to answer those questions. It is not intended to be a complete guide to all aspects of the points covered, and is aimed at readers who already have a knowledge of Gaelic to act as a reference guide rather than as a basic text for learning the language.
