Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of author names relevant to the analysis of linguistic work of Nancy C. Dorian. The Gaelic spoken by the Gaelic-English bilinguals of the area showed marked regional characteristics common to all three villages, but it also showed notable differences village by village. From the point of view of the Linguistic Survey, the speech varieties in use in Brora, Golspie, and Embo represented particular dialects of Gaelic, and while their loss might reduce the number of existing forms of Gaelic speech and remove valuable historical information, it did not represent a threat to the existence of the Gaelic language.

Keywords: Gaelic-English bilinguals; linguistic work
