Why Irish Language is NOT Dead

If you’re not sharing “Dia dhuit” on Twitter and Facebook every morning, why not? What’s holding you back? You can have a bit of fun and be creative.

There’s no “x” in the Irish language alphabet… but in the following TEDx video, you’ll hear:

  1. It’s a myth that the Irish language is dead
  2. Irish speakers are being creative on social media platforms, like shortening words and breaking grammar rules
  3. This new version of Irish is a more accessible version, open to a wider audience
  4. So don’t worry about making a mistake, because who cares.

Here’s the TEDx video:

The speaker is Dr. Teresa Lynn, who worked with Prof Kevin Scannell, who was a past guest on the Bitesize Irish Gaelic Podcast.
