Andrew Carnie, Muriel Fisher and Ian Clayton summer on the Isle of Skye

July 8, 2015

Andrew Carnie, Muriel Fisher and their collaborator and former UA Postdoc Ian Clayton (University of Nevada Reno) spent 2 weeks this summer on the Isle of Skye in Scotland doing some initial field work on a new NSF-funded project as part of their long term research into the Grammar of Scottish Gaelic. This new project involves filming native speakers of the language doing and describing traditional parts of the island, such as cutting peat, traditional song and art, agriculture. This project is being done in conjunction with the Media Studies program at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, the Gaelic College on the Island.
