Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: The Irish Language in Ireland
Subtitle: From Giodel to Globalisation
Written By: Diarmait Mac Giolla Chriost

This book comprises the first complete treatment of the Irish language in
social context throughout the whole of Ireland, with a particular focus on
contemporary society. The possibilities and limitations of the craft of
language planning for the revival of the Irish language are outlined and
the book also situates the language issue in the context of current debates
on the geography, history and politics of the nature of Irish identity. A
comprehensive multidisciplinary approach is adopted throughout.
