Manx Words


A new dictionary for learners of Manx, Manx Words is a fantastic addition to the growing material available for both learners and speakers of the language.
The pocket dictionary has been produced by James Harrison and Adrian Cain but has been heavily influenced by the work and assistance of Steve Morris of Swansea University who produced a similar dictionary for leaners of Welsh.
Manx Words covers vocabulary encountered by students in their first couple of years of studying the language. Each item comes with an example of the terminology being used in everyday situations whilst there are useful word lists covering numbers, days of the week, months of the year and common place names in the Island and elsewhere. There is also an explanation, with examples, of irregular verbs and the most common prepositions.
