Beo! and kicking
Pól Ó Muirí
February’s issue of the Internet mag, Beo!, is on-line. Among the articles to note are an interview by Doctor John Walsh, UI Galway, with Leanne Hinton, a professor of linguistics in the university of Berkeley, California, on her work on native languages of that region and the on-going attempts to try and keep them in use. Also, Seán Tadhg Ó Gairbhí, a regular and welcome contributor to The Irish Times, follows on the discussion Brian Ó Broin began in this paper re: what sort of Irish is the Irish-language movement trying to save?
