Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts 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. In the late nineteenth century and the early twentieth century, when the fully fluent Gaelic speakers of the 1960s and '70s were children, families in the former fishing villages might have as many as a dozen children, sometimes more, and the sibling set extended in quite a few cases beyond the 20 years conventionally taken to be a generation.

Keywords: fishing villages; Gaelic-English bilinguals; linguistic work
