There are three Gaelic languages and cultures:




Many Americans (and others) are unaware that the Irish refer to their type of Gaelic as "Irish" and refer to the Scottish type as "Gaelic". On this site I have tried to differentiatethe two languages as "Irish Gaelic' and "Scottish Gaelic" for the benefit of

overseas questioners who make think "Gaelic" means Irish only. There also seems to

be confusion about Scots (lowland dialect variant of English) and Scottish Gaelic

(a Celtic language of the Highlands). Questions about how to say something in 'Scottish' become problems as well.
