Contributions to Modern Irish linguistics dedicated to Breandán Ó Buachalla in his 70th year. This is one field that Breandán specialised in over the years and inspired many of his students to develop an interest in the field. The essays are written by former students and ex-colleagues with interests in Irish linguistics. The book covers various themes from formal structures of the language to contemporary sociolinguistics.
