Cainnt mo Mhàthar

…de la Cape Breton Post:

Cainnt mo Mhàthar (My Mother’s Language) is a project designed to record idiomatic, everyday Gaelic from fluent speakers in Nova Scotia.

Now in its final stage, the project has produced nearly 25 hours of video recordings based on an extensive questionnaire developed with the needs of language learners in mind.Project co-ordinator Shamus Y.
