The Very Reverend Dr. Baird, Principal of the University of Edinburgh, so 
distinguished for his unwearied and patriotic exertions for the advancement of 
education, and the diffusion of knowledge throughout the Highlands and Isles of 
Scotland, having projected two periodical publications in the Gaelic language ; we, 
the compilers of this work, were induced at his earnest request to undertake the 
charge of conducting them.* We had iiot been long engaged in our labours, 
when we found that the want of a Concise and Cheap Dictionary of the Gaelic 
language proved an almost insuperable obstacle to the progress of education in the 
Highlands, and a great hinderance to those who were disposed to promote it. 

This want so long felt, and so much complained of, we undertook to supply ; 
and we have now been enabled to bring our labours to a close. 

We have certainly had peculiar advantages, for enabling us to present to the 
public a Dictionary of the Gaelic language, as free from omissions and errors as 
the great variety of provincial phraseology, and the state of written literature in 
that language, can reasonably admit of. 

The admirable translation of the Scriptures, and the publication of the poems 
of Ossian in the original Gaelic, under the sanction of the Highland Society of 
Loudon, furnish a rich treasure of genuine Gaelic. In addition to these, we have 
had the advantage of a Dictionary compiled by Mr. R. A. Armstrong, A.M., which, 
considering the difficulties the compiler had to contend with, does him great credit. 
We have also had before us a Celtic Dictionary, published by the Highland 
Society of Scotland; conducted by the Rev. Dr. John M'Leod, Minister of Dun- 
donald, with the assistance of the late Mr. Ewen M'Lachlan of Aberdeen, the late 
Rev. Dr. Alexander Irvine of Little Dunkeld, and the Rev. Mr. Alexander 
M'Donald of Crieff; and superintended and corrected in its progress through the 
press, by the Rev. Dr. M'Kay of Laggan. 

This great work is such as might be expected from the eminent attainments of 
the distinguished individuals, to whom its compilation was intrusted. Mr. M'Lach- 
lan of Aberdeen, especially, brought to the undertaking, great talents, profound 
learning, habits of industry which were almost superhuman, an intimate acquaint- 
ance with the Gaelic language, and devoted attachment to the elucidation of its 
principles. In the midst of his labours it pleased Divine Providence to remove 
him from this life ; but his memory will always be honoured. No one ever 
applied more indefatigably or more successfully to the cultivation of Celtic 

Without arrogating undue merit to ourselves, it may be presumed, that, in con- 
sequence of the great advantages which we derived from the labours of our pre- 
decessors, and by the application of even ordinary talent and industry to our work, 
the Dictionary of the Gaelic language, which we now offer to the public, must lie 
the most perfect that has ever been published. 

• Dr MTz-oJ hn? the sole charge of the Gaelic M«s3enger, and Dr. Bowar uf the Oaelic Sermon. 


To the compilers of the other Dictionaries we cheerfully ^ve all the praise to 
which they are entitled; hut, without claiming to ourselves any extraordinary 
share of learning or of talent, we deem it our duty to remark, that we have given 
a great variety of words and terms, which do not appear in the works of our prede- 
cessors j that, profiting by their errors and mistakes, we have corrected numerous 
errors, and supplied important deficiences : — and we hope, without going into any 
detail which might appear invidious, it may be permitted us to say, that a very 
cursory comparison of the result of our labours, will show that, with greater con- 
ciseness, we are at least equally comprehensive, and that while the different accep- 
tations of words are given with all the brevity which our plan required, they are 
always distinctly and fully defined. 

We consider that one of the excellencies of this Dictionary is an uniform 
adherence to the justly recognised standard of Gaelic orthography, the Gaelic 
Bible. The .venerable translators of the Scriptures, who were so competent to 
form inaccurate judgment on this subject, gave it the most serious consideration 
during the many years they were engaged in their beneficent labours : and feeling 
as we do, the propriety of entirely acquiescing in their decision, as well as the 
advantages which result from uniformity in orthography, we have invariably con- 
formed to the rules which they have prescribed. " Every language," says the great 
lexicographer. Dr. Johnson, " has its anomalies, which, though inconvenient, and in 
themselves once unnecessary, must be tolerated among the imperfections of hu- 
man things, and which require only to be registered that they may not be in- 
creased, and ascertained that they may not be confounded." 

In the etymological department of the work we have been prevented by the 
desire of being concise, from entering into any lengthened discussion, but we have 
endeavoured to give the etymology of such words as seemed to require explanation. 

After each word inserted in the Gaelic part of the work, we have given its 
leading inflections in an abbreviated form. The substantive nouns are given in 
their nominative form, followed by the terminations of the genitive singular and 
■ nominative plural, and when the terminations are irregular they are given in full. 
Adjective nouns are given in their positive states, followed by their terminations 
of the comparative degree, and when these are irregular they are given at length 
as in the case of substantives. 

Pronouns are given at length according to their respective properties. 

The Verb is always introduced in the 2d person singular of the imperative, that 
being the theme or root of the Gaelic Verb. Then follows the last syllable of the 
future indicative, which, when joined to the root first given, forms the future of 
the indicative, which is one of the tenses of the Verb, and as such is one of its 
component parts. And, last of all, the initial form of the preterit indicative is 
given, which, being substituted for the simple initial form of the imperative, changes 
it into the preterit tense of the indicative. From these three tenses all the parts 
of the Gaelic Verb are formed. When the principal parts of the Verb are irre- 
gular they are given at full length. In this arrangement, so important to the 
Gaelic scholar, we have followed the example set us by the compilers of the Celtic 

This Dictionary has been superintended in its progress through the press by Mr. 
Patrick M'Farlane of Glasgow, the well known translator of many valuable works 
into the Gaelic language. To his great attention in the correction of the press, 
and his minute acquaintance with provincial phraseology, this work in its present 
form is much indebted, and the compilers have great pleasure in acknowledging 
their obligations to him. 


We have only to add, that in bringing our labours to a close, we feel cheered 
by the consideration, that we have accomplished the main objects of our undertak- 
ing, namely, to make the stores of knowledge accessible to our Highland coun- 
trymen, and to place within the reach of all who have any wish to become 
acquainted with the Gaelic language, the means of facilitating their progress. They 
will find the English and Gaelic portion of our Dictionary of essential utility in 
aiding them in making this acquisition. 

" Though the lexicographer can only hope to escape reproach, while every 
other author may aspire to praise," and " though we may not even attain to this 
negative recompense," we " deliver our book to the world with the spirit of 
men who have endeavoured well."

B, the second letter of the Gaelic Alphabet, 
named Beith, the birch-tree. B has two 
sounds ; one like b in English, as baile, a 
town; beo, aUve; the other aspirated like 
V in English, as bhuail, struck. In the end 
of a syllable, the articulation is sometimes 
feeble ; and often passes into the vocal 
sound of u, as in marbh, dead, garbh, rough. 
Hence the Welch marve, and the Manksj 
marroo. — The article a7i is uniformly 
changed into am before this letter. 

B', for BU, jn-et. of r;. Is; used before an ini- 
tial vowel, or fb. " B' uamhasach an la-
