Thot you might like to add George MacDonald to your list for good reading. His narrator always speaks in 'Victorian English', but his Scottish novels are chock full of dialect...much of it Doric, some more general 'Scots'. His characters always speak in their true Scottish voice. My reccomendation for a great start is *Sir Gibbie* (current publisher -- Johanneson Publishing...they've reprinted all of MacDonald's stuff *with* the Scots dialect...some other publishers have sadly extracted it!)

Please, forgive me if I'm in the wrong place, but I am looking for someone who can help me to translate a few approx. 11 sentences from English to Gaelic. If anyone is up for the challenge please email me at VDorr@aol.com Thank you very much in advance Valorie Dorr
