Meeting: Local Language Patterns
As a follow-up to last year’s Soillse small research fund project a meeting has been organised:
“Local Language Patterns: Uist’s Extra Dimension”
Tuesday 6th March, 7.30pm
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the findings from the report, and exchange ideas on any actions that groups or individuals might like to take in light of it. The title of the study is “Perceptions of Gaelic Learning and Use in a Bilingual Island Community: an Exploratory Study”, and the full report can be found online via this link. A half-page summary by Gordon Wells was also published in the December issue of Am Pàipear and can be found here. Everyone who took part in the project is invited to come along, and that invitation extends to any other members of the community who take a positive interest in this subject. Tea and coffee will be available!
The meeting will start with a brief presentation on the main points of the report, to be followed by questions and discussion. Some ideas for development out of the Guthan nan Eilean/Island Voices project will be presented, and other suggestions will be most welcome! If you are interested in attending, do please come along. It would be helpful if you could let Gordon know beforehand by phoning/texting 07879 644984.
