Hello, can I bang my own drum? This is a talk I'll be giving, basically the same one that I gave in Glasgow at Rannsachadh na Gàidhlig this 'summer'. I'll also be talking a bit about dialect and folklore:

That sounds really interesting! I'll add it to the Calendar page as well in case people check that but don't read through the forum. I don't think I can go, but I hope you get a great turn-out.

A few people have requested a copy of this. I'm currently writing it up into an article for the Proceedings of Rannsachadh na Gàidhlig where it will appear I hope. Eventually I hope to have it as part of an introduction for the book I'm writing about him.

Before that though I'll send round a draft to some people, so stay tuned.
