Abstract
  • Vocabulary of Scots Gaelic. Hand written notebook bound in vellum over cardboard. Circa 1706. This is a notebook similiar to TCD MS 1368, used during a tour of the Highlands, and contains notes on books and persons and glossaries. Included is a loose slip, with an IOU from D. Parry to Edward Lhuyd dated 12 April 1706. The vocabulary (English and Irish) is partly in the handwriting of D. Parry, partly in Lhuyd's and is classified under subjects. There are also included: "Mr Robert Kirke's small Highland vocabulary" (7pp): the first two chapters of Genesis in Irish, but with Welsh orthography (Rev. John Beaton's speaking of Kirk's Irish Bible); a short list of persons in Scotland possessing ancient MSS, and a copy of an old charter "communicated by Principal Dunlop at Glasgow".Kirke's glossary is a translation of Ray's Dictionariolum and was ed. by J.L. Campbell in Scottish Gaelic Studies, vol. 76. It was first printed in W. Nicolson's Scottish Historical Library (London 1702), 334-5. Campbell finds three dialects: 1. Argyllshire (prob. Kintyre), 2. Invernessshire marked IN or SIN; 3. Munster (M).
