Green English free pdf This volume tells the story of the English language in Ireland over the first millennium. It explains how speakers of English, Scots and Irish Gaelic forged a linguistic amalgam that was carried around the world. It shows how the distilled essence of the language of the three communities provided a rich medium for writers, and suggests that this variety has contributed greatly to World English. The book traces the history of the English language in Ireland, its relationship with Irish Gaelic, its development into varieties now known as Anglo-Irish, Ulster Scots and Hiberno-English, and its spread to other parts of the world, including North America, Australia, Britain, the Caribbean and Africa. The book also includes a dictionary of Irish words in English.
