In addition to the Gaelic charts below, we also have a shop selling a variety of t-shirts. You can visit it here.
What are they?
A pair of laminated, double-sided cards, which illustrate some of the trickiest grammatical features of modern Scottish Gaelic - useful sources of reference both for fluent speakers and learners of the language.
Can't I get all this anyway in dictionaries and grammars?
Yes, and no. The information is certainly available, but there is no single source that provides all this information in a condensed, highly portable format using GOCII. Some other unique features are:
- The cross layout of the verbs aids the practising of yes/no questions and answers - an essential skill, but one which can be difficult for adult learners to master.
- All the commonest, dialectal variations are obvious at a glance, boosting confidence in the orthography.
- Some of these forms are rare in speech and so may be quite unfamiliar. Having a complete overview of all possible combinations offers a check-list for learners as well as a spelling guide for everyone.
- They are designed to fit neatly into a ringbinder polypocket. The text is orientated so that it is the right way up as you flip over the polypocket.
