english island modern cultural history ireland irish language communication

Irish Language (2017)

Abstract The Irish language has been the main but never the sole means of communication on the island of Ireland from the dawn of history until the beginning of the modern period when it began to be superseded by English. Over the more than 1500 years of its written attestation, it has undergone substantial changes in its grammatical and lexical aspects, partly reflecting its changing sociolinguistic and cultural role.
