Gaelic , or Goidelic is one of the groups of the Celtic family of languages, comprising Irish, Scottish Gaelic, and Manx. Scottish Gaelic and Manx developed through the migrations of Irish speakers in the first millennium AD. The Irish conquered Scotland starting in the 4th century. They spread no…rthwards and eastwards through Scotland cutting through native Pictish resistance. Following the establishment of the Gaelic church on Iona by Columba in the 6th cent., the Gaels acquired the means of spreading both their authority and their language. In the 9th cent., Gaels and Picts were finally united under a Gaelic king, probably of mixed parentage. In the 11th cent., Malcolm Canmore, son of Duncan, came to the throne with the aid of English forces and began to introduce Anglo-Norman customs and language. His descendants followed this policy and the Gaelic language was gradually replaced by English in state and church administration. Scottish Gaelic is still spoken in some parts of Scotland. Irish is still the first official language of Ireland and is regarded as the national speech; although since the nineteenth century most Irish people speak English. (MORE)

No. They vary enough to be classified as separate languages. They shared a common literary language until the 1600s, but the dialects of the common folk differed even then. Scottish Gaelic was more influenced by Norse than Irish and Irish was less so. Historically Irish was divided into southern (Mu…nster) and northern; the northern subdivided into Connacht and Ulster. The East Ulster dialect shared some charcteristics with Scottish Gaelic and the dialects of southwest Scotland resembled Irish in some respects. The pronunciation is probably the greatest difference, but the written language is more intelligible.

Alba is the Scots Gaelic name for Scotland. It is pronounced "ALL-a-pa". Alba (pronounced all-uh-puh)
