Mynydd and Monadh – Echoes of Cymraeg in Scotland’s Gaelic Landscape
Talk in English by Roddy Maclean
Friday 24 September 2021, 7:00pm
Gaelic is the dominant language in the hilly and beautiful landscape of the Scottish Highlands. In this lecture, Scottish writer, broadcaster and educator Roddy Maclean explores how an understanding of cognate Celtic words and an ancient P-Celtic heritage can make that landscape seem a little more familiar to visitors from Wales. He will look at terms for landform and nature that represent a connection between our two Celtic nations, and will give advice on the structure and pronunciation of Gaelic toponyms.
