Irish Words and Phrases is a popular guide to Irish speech. English as spoken in Ireland draws heavily on words and phrases of Gaelic origin: these are the main emphasis in this book.

However, many other words and formations were originally standard English but have fallen into disuse so that a word like oxter (armpit) which used to be commonplace in England now only survives in Ireland.

This guide to popular Irish usage will appeal to visitors and Irish persons alike. It is a friendly, informative and charming guide to popular Irish speech, written by one of Ireland's best-known and best-loved linguists.

This book appears as part of a well-established and popular series.
