Extra Dimensions

Caoimhín Ó Donnaíle demonstrates the use of Multidict and Wordlink with Gaelic Wikipedia

The latest issue of Am Pàipear carries a couple of articles with a bearing on Guthan nan Eilean/Island Voices. In the first, “Local Language Patterns: Uist’s Extra Dimension”, Gordon Wells highlights and discusses the main points arising from the recent Soillse research project he conducted through Cothrom. This may be a useful summary alternative to reading the full report, already published online.

The second article, “From POOLS to TOOLS: Sabhal Mòr Ostaig leads the multilingual way”, gives more detail on a new European project due to start in January, in which new multilingual software will be trialled. It will be interesting to see if and how a new “cyberspatial” connection can enhance language learning and use in a real community!
