Details for unit 7628

Title:Eairdsidh Caimbeul
Short url:
Summary:An early sample from a pilot project in which the UHI Language Sciences Institute with Sabhal Mòr Ostaig and Soillse, together with Irish partners, embark on recording the natural speech of Irish and Scottish Gaelic speakers in their own communities with user-friendly equipment and techniques. This film was made in an initial training session. As part of their training Pàdruig quizzes Archie on his recollections and opinions on growing up and continuing to live on Benbecula. Archie is a native of Benbecula, and the conversation starts with him explaining his family roots. He goes on to talk about his schooling and higher education on the islands and later on the mainland. The conversation moves on to his history of employment, with spells in Gaelic playgroup development and then in advice work back on Benbecula. Pàdruig then asks Archie about changes he’s witnessed in the locality and the language since the days of his youth.
Language notes:A two-way conversation in which Pàdruig Moireach questions Eairdsidh Caimbeul on his recollections and opinions on growing up and continuing to live on Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides.
