SCOTIA NEWS TO REVAMP SCHEDULE
This peculiar July issue of the Scotia News is the first since last year. The death of our good friend and collaborator Tom Doran, has disrupted much of our Scottish activities. As many of you may know some of Tom’s remains were taken to Scotland in April and it has taken a while for us to get back on track here.
We are planning to publish the Scotia news in six issues a year (at least initially) which will be in January, March. May, July, September and November. Our “activities” page will be updated whenever we are informed of some upcoming event.
Can Scottish Gaelic Survive?
According to the The Endangered Languages Project Scottish Gaelic is in danger of disappearing.
This Project is attempting to use the digital tools in the Internet to help stem these extinctions by allowing anyone to submit "information or samples in the form of text, audio or video files". That way saving a language becomes a worldwide activity.
For example, checking the Activity tab will list examples of Scottish Gaelic in everyday use. Join to learn a language or help preserve it.
