The following Vocabulary of the Manks language has been compiled 
with considerable labour and assiduity. It is designed to facilitate the 
attainment of that ancient language, and to furnish the reader not only 
with a variety of vocables, idiomatic phrases, and proverbial expres- 
sions, but also the outlines of a Manks Grammar. 

That a language so venerable for its antiquity and so estimable on 
many accounts should be so generally neglected, is much to be 
lamented. The consequence of this neglect has been, that numerous 
corruptions have crept into the dialect in general use, and so many 
anglicisms been adopted, that the Manks is now seldom spoken or 
written in its original purity. Despised and neglected, however, as 
the language appears to be at present, it is susceptible of high improve- 
ment, and justly entitled to the attention of the scholar. The sublime 
strains of Ossian mark the capabilities of the language, and commend 
it to the regard of the philologist as a subject of curious enquiry, and 
deserving accurate investigation. 

At the present period, when this interesting little Island promises to 
become once more the abode of science and literature, it is hoped that 
Gaelic learning will revive, and that every facility will be afforded for 
the acquisition of a language so essentially necessary within the pre- 
cincts of Mona to the students of Divinity, and the students of Law. 
To both these classes, it is presumed, the compilation now offered to 
the public will prove an important acquisition. Such a publication has 
long been a desideratum in Manks literature, and possesses fair claims 
to general acceptance. Whilst the natives of Wales and the natives of 
North Britain are enthusiastically attached to the language of their 
forefathers, let it not be said that the natives of Mona regard " Chengey 
ny mayrey Vannin veg veen' with disgraceful apathy and heartless indif 
ference. As long as the Manks Bible and the Manks Liturgy remain 
they will testify that our ancestors thought and felt more correctly. 

Amongst the numerous literary advantages which " King Wilham's 
College" is expected to afford the sons of Mona, it is devoutly to be 
wished that the cultivation of the vernacular tongue be not overlooked. 
The establishment of a professorship for that specific object would be 
highly desirable, — such an arrangement would be in perfect unison 
with the pious and benevolent design of the Founder of the Academic 
Fund, whose primary object appears to have been to prepare candidates 
for the Holy Ministry in the Isle of Man, and thus promote the highest 
and best interests of the country. 

If the following work should contribute in the smallest degree to 
advance so important an end, the Compiler will have reason to regard 
his labour as well bestowed. 



I AM well aware that the utility of the following work will be variously appreciated 
by my brother Manksmen. Some will be disposed to deride the endeavour to restore 
vigour to a decaying language. Those who reckon the extirpation of the Manks 
a necessary step towards that general extension of the English, which they deem 
essential to the interest of the Isle of Man, will condemn every effort which seems 
likely to retard its extinction. 

But those will think otherwise who consider that there arc thousands of the 
natives of the Island that can at present receive no useful knowledge whatever, except 
through the medium of the Manks language; they will judge from experience, as 
well as from the nature of the case, that no work of this description will hinder the 
progress of the English, but in fact have the contrary effect. 

It is obvious, that when tribes of men are intermixed who speak different lan- 
guages, a great part of the knowledge which man should afford his neighbour must 
be diminished. The Magistrate cannot address his suitors, — the Pastor his flock, 
but through the imperfect medium of an interpreter. Lawyers, Divines, Physicians, 
Merchants, Manufacturers, and Farmers, all feel more or less this inconvenience 
when they transact business with whom they have no language in common. 

To remedy such defect, the following Manks Dictionary, with the corresponding 
words in English, may, it is hoped by the Compiler, contribute in some degree to 
facilitate the acquisition of both the Manks and English languages; and, if received 
with indulgence, may be followed by its counterpart, " English rendered into 

To place the present publication within the reach of the peasantry of the Isle of 
Man, it has been greatly abridged from what was at first purposed by the author; 
notwithstanding which, it is hoped will give general satisfaction, and be a standing 
memorial of that very ancient language — the Manks or Gaelic, to generations yet 
unborn ; as it may with a degree of truth be asserted that we have little more than 
two-thirds of the language preserved in the published translation of the Scriptures 
and the Church Liturgy. 

The following Remarks of Reference, with the work itself, will enable the reader 
to form some idea of the construction of the language. 




Of the LETTERS and their SOUNDS. 

1. The Alphabet consists of seventeen single 
and three double consonants, and seven vovrels 
—a e, i, o, u, iv, y. Of the consonants, fifteen 
are'm'utabie-A, c, ch, d,f, g, j, k, m, p, q, s, sh, 
si, t. The immutables are-?, n, r, which always 
retain their sound ; and alter not, except when 
preceded by s in the beginning of a word to show 
the degrees of comparison. Gh and ph begin no 
radical, or at least ought to begin none, as the 
language now stands; although there are word 
that are so written •. these are shown where they 
occur in the work, and will be seen only to be 
aspirations, gh of g and of d, and jyh of p. Sh and 
si must be considered double consonants as they 
have a change peculiar to themselves, and dif- 
fer from the other radical initialled s's. The v 
is considered a secondary mute. 

2. A is reckoned a broad vowel, and in some 
words sounded as o, as in claoh (a stone), clogh ; 
and as u, as in goan (scarce), goun. It is pro- 
nounced as o in the EngUsh words of man, pan; 
as, BAD, LAD, BAB, &c. ; and when circumflexed, 
as in nidroo, sarey, is sounded as in matron, &c. 

3. B is a labial, or Up-letter, and pronounced 
as b, in English ; as, bare, boayl. 

4. C preserves a strong sound in its unaspi- 
rated state, as the English k, or as c in can ; as, 
CAM, CAPPAN. It never, however, usurps the 
pronunciation of s, as in the EngUsh words cis- 
tern, city, cedar, &c. 

5. CH has a soft sound, as in chaghteu, 
CHARBAA, CHiMGVS ; Ukc ch in English, in cherry, 
charcoal, chime, &c. 

6. CH has a hard or harsh sound, which sound 
is not in the English language. I cannot express 
it better than by a word which I would write or 
spell egh or egg-yth, and a, en a (not) ; and which 
sound would go through with the vowels, thus : 
egh e, CHE ; egh i, chi ; egh o, cho ; egh u, chu ; 
eghy,CHY; and with CHLA.CHLB.&c; andcuRA, 

CURE, &C., &C. 

7. D is pronounced as d, in English, in drone, 
dunnal, &c. 

8. But D, in other words, as if written and pro- 
nounced dh, as in daa, doo, &c. 

g. E is reckoned a small vowel, but is some- 
times sounded long, and sometimes short; the 
latter sound as heard in men, ten, bed (in English) 
answers to the Manks ben, ren, shen, &c. 

10. The long or circumflexed E, as in vieriu, 
t'eh, te, ve, &c., Uke the EngUsh they, bey ; or as 
a in way, hay, say, &c. 

11. F is called a weak consonant; because, 
when aspirated, it looses aU its force ; as, fea 
(rest) ; E ea (his rest.) It corresponds in many 
cases with v; and has the English sound in fa, 


12. G is a heavy consonant, and pronounced 
as g, in EngUsh, in gain, get, go ; as, gamman, 
GoAiLL, GARRisH; but has no soft sound as in the 
words gentle, generous, &c. 

13. When G is aspirated to gh, it is reckoned a 
Ught consonant, and has a gutteral sound ; no 
such sound is in the EngUsh language ; and al- 
though ^A is in ghost and ghastly, they are only 
sounded gost, gastly. 

14. H is pronounced as h in the words hand, 
hind, hold, &c. in EngUsh. Some would rather 
caU h an auxiliary than a letter, because it rarely 
begins any radical word except a few smaU ones, 
as, HANNAH, HYM, &c., and scrves only to aspirate 
the other consonants, as, ch, gh, mh, ph, th, &c ; 
or the vowels, as, ha, he, hi, &c. When it aspi- 
rates from t, foUowed by an )•, it is often sounded 
as ch, as e hraa Qns time) ; e hroo (his envy) : 
&c. It is an initial in feminine genitive nouns ; 

J (her face) ; 

, (her mind 

orwUl); E HENNYM (her name.) The mascu- 
line of those would be e eddin (his face) ; e 
AiGNEY, (his mind) ; e ennym, (his name.) 

15. / is one of the smaU vowels, and pro- 
nounced as i (in EngUsh) in pin, win, sin ; as, 


16. J is pronounced exactly Uke the soft Eng- 
Ush g, and is perfectly uniform in its sovmd. 

17. K. This letter has precisely the sound of 
hard c, in English, and is never sUent as the Eng- 
Ush k in knee, knave, know. Sec. 

18. L. Some say this letter admits of no aspi- 
ration, and is pronounced as I (in EngUsh) ir 

lioe, love: 

but I think 

there is a distinction between lie or ly in EngUsh, 
and LHiB in Manks; and had the words loo, 
LOOR, &c., been speUed or written Lnoo and 
LHOOR, they woiUd have answered the Manks 
pronunciation better, for without the /jthe sound 
is too narrow, except to those who know that 
they require that sound. 

19 il/is a strong consonant, but it is often 



changed into v ; and when it is followed by u; oo, 
or u, it changes to v or ic, when aspirated. 

20. iV is sounded as » in English ; it is never 
aspirated nor eclipsed, but yet called a light con- 
sonant, and is often doubled to give the greater 

21. is a broad vowel; when acuted as o in 
gone, in EngUsh, answers the Manks son, 
CRON, &c. 

22. When is circmnflexed as in bone, shone, 
open, &c., thus ONEY, OYR, &c. Manks. 

23. O before / in the Manks, sounds ohl. 

24. P. This is a hard consonant, and pro- 
nounced as p in English. 

2j. PH is sounded as the English /. 

26. Q, which is always followed by it, has the 
sound of kie. 

27. il is a light consonant, and pronounced as 
)• in English ; but some times when an initial, it 
requires to be sounded as if written r/i ; as, red (a 
thing), RUED. 

28. S, although called the queen of conso- 
nants, is subject to many changes, as shown in 
Remarks 55, 56, 57, 58, 111, 112, 161, &c. It 
sounds as (in English) savor, sense- 

29. T. This is a hard consonant, naturally 
commuted with rf ; eis, dy gerrid, for dy gbrrit. 

30. When T is an initial before a vowel, it re- 
quires to be sounded as if written th. 

31 . U is one of the three broad vowels with « 
and o, and sounded as u (in English) in cumber ; 
as, ci'.M (hold). 

32. V is not properly a radical initial conso- 
nant ; but only a secondary mute. However, we 
have some few words which begin with 11 as a 
radical ; as, vaidjyn, veih, &c. 

33. W. Though I have set down this letter as 
a vowel, I know of no syllable or word vrithout 
another vowel attached to it, with consonants, to 
make a word or syllable. The Welsh have it a 
vowel, without any support. Its sound is as 00 
(in English) in boot, soof, root; as, wardoov. 

34. i'. This letter as a vowel and 
is too frequently used in the Manks. Its first or 
primEiry sound would be as i (in English) in bbid, 
hile, &c. 

35. But Y has another soimd as u, and is as t 
in English) in bird, third, — answering to the 

sound in spyrryd, y.mmyrchagh, ynrican, &c. 
in Manks. 

36. Tliis letter has the sound of e in the word 
the (in English); as, dy, dty, my, sy, &c. 

37. V some times has the sound of ee, as in 
the English, barley, belly, fititiffy, &c. ; as, lheiy, 


38. Such words as begin with mutable or 
changeable consonants, viz. : b. c, eh, d, f, g,j, k, 

m, p, 'I, K, sh, v/, aiifl f. chancre these their radical 
initial letters as nccasion require, and according 
to the effect the prcccdinc wnrtls have on them. 

39- The letter A, as an initial in radical verbs, 
changes to d, or rather has d placed before it, as 
shown in Remark 60 ; and to g, (or has g placed 
before it) as shown in Remark 61 ; and also 
changes to n, (or has »j placed before it) to show 
the preterit or past time of the action of the verb ; 
and so of all the vowels v/hen radical initials. — 
See Remark II 9, &c. 

■10. But the letter A and all the vowels change 
to h (or have h placed before them) to show the 
gentive or ownership case of the feminine gender, 
as may be seen under the H in the work, and in 
Remark 14. 

41. Words, primarily beginning with B, have 
three initials, viz.: b, v, vi; as, bra ar (a brother); 
e vraar (his brother) ; nyn mraab (your, &c. 
brother) ; &c. &c. 

42. But when the second letter after the B is 
«', 00, or It, such words change to w or w as an 
initial; as, booiagh (willing or pleased); feer 
wooiAGH (very wilUng or pleased, &c.) ; and 

BWOAILLEE (a fold) ; E WOAILLEE (his fold) ; 

Bt'iGHEY (jaundice) ; yn wuighey or vuighey 
(the jaundice or yellows) . 

43 . Words beginning with C have three initials, 
viz.: c, ch, andg-; as, carrey (a friend) ; e char- 
REY (his friend) ; nyn garrey (your, &c. 

44. Words beginning with CH have also three 
initials, viz.: ch,h, andy,- as, chencey (a tongue); 
E hengey (his tongue); nyn jengby (your, &c. 
tongue), &c. 

45 . Words initialled by D have two, \tz. : d and 
gh; as, Dooi.N-NEY (a man); e ghooinney (his 

, &c. 

46. Words radically initialled by E, have four, 
and so have aU the other vowels the initial vowel, 
and three others, \iz.: e, or the other vowel, and 
d, g, and n ; as, eeck (pay) ; deeck (paid or did 
pay); geeck (paying). See Remarks 60 and 61 ; 
and er neeck (hath or having, &c. paid). See 
also a change mentioned in Remark 40. 

47 . Some words commencing with E, radically, 
for better sound's sake begin with y; as, eeast 
(a fish), yeeast ; ebax (a chicken), yeean, &c. 

48. Words beginning with F have nine or 
more changes, viz.: dand !•, and the first vowel or 
consonant after the /, if the preceding word 
change it. 

49- Words radically initialled by G have two, 
as g and gh ,- as, geay (wind) ; yn gheay (the 
wind) . G also sometimes changes to y ; as, giare 
(short) ; Ro YiARE (too short), though some- 
times spelled GHiARE ; GiALL (whitc or bright) ; 
Ro YiALL (too bright). This and others are also 
written ro ghiall, &c. 

50. Words commencing with / have two ini- 
tials, j and y ; as, jee (God) ; e yee, (his God) ; 

5 1 . Words initialled with K have three, viz. : 
k, ch, and g; as, keyrey (a sheep) ; b cheyrey 
(his sheep) : kyn geyrev (your &c. sheep), &c. 



52. iV, beginning words has but two initials, 
viz. : m and v ; as, moybn (pride) ; e voyrn (his 
pride), &c. 

53. P, beginning words has three initials, viz.: 
p, ph, and b; as, pooar (power) ; e phooar (his 
power) ; NYxV BooAR (youT &c. power), &c. 

54. Q, beginning radicals, has three initials, 
viz.; //, wh, and g; as, quaiyl (a court); e 
wHUAiYL (his court); NYN ouAiYL (your, &c. 
court), &c. 

55. S, beginning words radically, has many 
changes, viz. : s, h, t -, as sooill (an eye) ; b 
HOOII.L (his eye) ; yn tooill (the eye). 

s6. And if S be followed by h, it changes to ch 
and A; as, shenn ohooinney (an old man) ; yn 
CHENN GHOoiNNEY (the old man ) ; e henn 
ohooinney (his old man). 

57. Wlien S is followed by I, it changes to cl 
and /; as, slat (a rod); yn ciat (the rod) ; 
E lat (his rod, &c.) 

58. The letter S, apostropliized before adjec- 
tives and participles, I think is an abreviation of 
sjioo, by which the degrees of comparison are 
shown throughout the language ; first, the posi- 
tive, FiRRiNACH (true) ; secondly, a degree above 
the positive ; as, s'firrinagu (how true) ; thirdly, 
the comparative, ny s'firrinee (more true) ; 
fourthly, the superlative, yn raa s'firrinee (the 
truest saying). 

59. T, beginning words radically, has three 
initials, viz.: t, h, and d; as, towse (a measure) ; 
e howse (his measure) ; nyn dowse (your, 
&c. measure). 


60. Verbs commencing radically with vowels, 
begin with d to show the preterit or past time of 
action, or negatively; as, aarl or aarlee (cook, 
dress, or prepare) ; daarlee (did cook, dress, or 
prepare); and negatively, ch a daarlee, &c. ; 
and eoyllee (dung or manure) ; deoyllee (did 
dung, or manure) ; and cha deoyllee, &c. 

61 . Verbs beginning in like manner with vow- 
els, to show the present and also the past time of 
action, begin with g ; as, aase (grow) ;,caase 
(growing) ; va mee gaase (I was growing) ; ir- 
ree (rise); &c. 

62. Of verbs irregular, which do not altogether 
change according to the foregoing remarks.— 
Cheet (coming), changes to haink, daink, hio, 

Clashtyn (hearing), clasht, chlasiityn, 


Cur, or Coyrt (giving, putting, sending, he), 


Fakin (seeing), akin, faie, 
Geddyn (getting), oiieddvn 


Goaill (taking), < 
GoLL (going), hie, 


Gra (saymg), adbyr, dooyrt, chra, jir. 
and jiRR, YiAR and yiarr, n'abbvr, n'yiarr. 

Jannoo (doing), jban, jin and jinn, yinn, 

63. The regular verbs change their initials ac- 
cording to what has been said on the changing of 
the letters and their terminations, as specified in 
Remarks 77—88. 


64. Of the forming oi plurals in the Manks, 
the addition of yn to the singular is the most 
common, which is shown after the singulars 
tlirough the work. Have the plurals houseii, 
(which was formerly used as the plural in the 
English for houses) , oxen, men, women, children , 
&c., any analogy to tliis? Undoubtedly they 

65. Other words are formed into plurals by 
the addition of aghyn to the singulars; these, 
for the most part, are given in the work after 
their singulars. 

66. There are other words that only requuc 
GHYN to be added to the singular. 

67. Some singular words, ending in ev, 
change the ey to aghyn, to pluralize them ; as, 


(help) ; coonaghyn (helps), &c. 

68. other words ending in by, change the y 
to EYN; as, bunnby (sheaf); bunneeyn (sheaves) 

6g. other singulars ending in e and ey, 
change the b and ey to yn ; as, paitchby (a 
child) ; paitchyn (children) ; fockle (a word) ; 
FocKLYN (words). 

70. Some few singulars ending in lev, change 
the LEY to JYN; as, billey (a tree); biljyn 
(trees) ; balley (a town or estate) ; baljyn 
(towns or estates), &c. 

71. The termination of singulars in agh, for 
the most part to pluralize them, changes the agh 
to EE ; as, GiMMAGH (a lobstcr) ; gimmbe (lobs- 
ters), &c. 

72. The ending of singulai's in agh, aght, in, 
or YN, sometimes changesto eeyn; as, eaddagh 
(woollen cloth) ; eaddeeyn (woollen cloths) ; 
claddagh, singular; claddebyn, plural; curn- 

AGHT (wheat); CURNBEYN (whCatS) ; SKILLIN 

(a shUling) ; skilleeyn (shillings). 

73. There arc other formations of plurals in 
the middle of words ; as, mac (a son) ; meg (sons). 

74. Others by changing oa or o, to ui ; as, 

DOARN (a fist) ; DUIRN (fiSts) ; STOYL (a StOOl) ; 
STUILL (stools). 

75. The changing of e to i makes plural in 
some words ; as, fer to fir, &c. 



/6. There are other words that require the 
change of y to i ; as, cabbvl (a horse) ; cabbii, 
(.horses), &c. 


77. Of the termination of verbs, or the com- 
pounding of auxiliary verbs, pronouns, &c., to 
the verbs. — AGH, added to a verb, is used with 
ail the nominative pronouns, except I ; as, he, 
EH; they, AD; we, shin; she, eb ; you, shiv; 
thou, 00, &c., as the words may require ; and 
means would or wouldxt, could or couldst, might 
or mighteat. Sec, do the action of the verb ; or 
would or wouldst, &c., not do the action of the 
verb; as the verb berr (overtake); bkrrach 
EH (he would, &c., overtake) ; or, cha berragh 
00 (thou wouldst not overtake) ; &c., &c. 

78. AIL, joined to a verb, signifies ing in Eng- 
Ush ; as, baar (spend) ; baarail (spending) ; 
faag (leave) ; faagail (leaving) ; &c. 

79. AL, added to a verb, has the same mean- 
ing as AIL, ing, in English, and may be termed 
the grand Manksifier -general of English verbs ; 
as, trying, try W; fixing, fixal, &c., &C; but 
not to the credit or honour of those who so 
make use of it. 

80. EE. This added to a verb, and used with 
the nominative pronouns (except / or she) means 
will or wilt, shall or shall, perform the action 
of the verb to which it is annexed ; or will or 
shall not perform the action of the verb, as set 
forth in remark 77, on agh ; that is, would: and 
this is, will and shall do. 

81. EIL. This, as well as ail and al, wlien 
added to a verb, means ing ; as, doovteil (doubt- 
ing) ; TREiSHTEiL (trusting). 

82. £1'. This syllable, also added to a verb, 
corresponds to the English ing, or the doing or 
performing the action of the verb to which it is 
annexed; as, gobbraghbv (working) ; fluighkv 
(wetting), &c. 

S3. IX. This termination, which always re- 
quires to be sounded as if written ihn, partakes 
of the nature of the auxiliary verb icuuld and 
the pronoun /, as, berr (overtake): bkrrix ;I 
would overtake), and when so joined together is 
caUed pronominal. 

84. INS. This termination to a verb is the 
emphatic, absolute, certain, especial or particular 
of the preceding iv, is that case to the verb to 
which annexed, and always requires to be sound- 
ed as if written ihns ; as, berr (overtake) ; ber- 
rins (I would, emphatically, absolutely, or cer 
tainly, &c. overtake). 

85. IT or T. These terminations, which an- 
swer to the English ed, must, to retain the pro- 
per Manks sound, be pronounced as if written iA?, 
and ht, and partake of the nature of an adjective. 
Added to a verb it becomes a participle. There 
are many words of this part of speech in 
English that do rot admit of ending in cf?, as. 

grown, found, lost, worn, &c, ; yet these all end 
in it or t in the Manks ; as, aasit, feddvxit, 
CAILT or caillit, ceait, &c. 

86. YM. This syllable, which partakes of the 
nature of the pronoun / and the auxiliary verb 
will, added to a verb, signifies that I will do or 
suffer the action of the verb to which applied ; as, 
berr (overtake) ; berrvm (I wiU overtake), &c. 

87. YMS, it may be said, is the same to ym, 
as ins is to IN, the absolute, certain, especial or 
emphatic of y.m ; as, berr (overtake) ; BERRy.>is 
(I will emphatically overtake..) 

88. YS. This termination, and ee, added to 
verbs, is nearly of the same import ; but it is 
my opinion that the ys means shall or shall do 
the action of the verb ; and ee, « (7/ and wilt , 
but the translators of the Scriptures into our 
language use it for both. Tliis syllable, added to 
a verb, should always be employed where two or 
more words that are sounded alike happen to. 
gether; as, ee ee ee (she will eat). When these 
occur, we generally say ee ys ee (she shall or wLU 
eat). This postfix is undoubtedly used in the 
subjunctive mood for eat, eats, eatelh, eatest, &c ; 
as, MY eevs, eu, ad, 00, &c. (if he eats, if they 
eat, if thou eateth) ; .my eey-s doonney (if aman 
eat, shall eat, or eateth) ; and so of other verbs. 
In Genesis ii. 17, we have son er y laa eeys 00 
JEH (for in the day thou eateth thereof) ; and in 
the xiv. chap. 15, it is, quoi erbee varrys 
CAIN (whosoever slayeth Cain). This termina- 
tion is also used in apposition; as, shoh yn 
dooinney obbyrys diu (this is the man that 
will or shall work for you) . 


&9- Of the forming of adjectival nouns, or sub- 
stantives made of adjectives, in the Manks, by 
the addition or changing of a syllable in the ter- 
mination of a word, corresponding to the English 
ness, ty, &c.— The most common of these are id 
and D, which require to retain the Manks sound, 
and pronounced as if written ihd, and hd. These 
syllables are sometimes added to the adjective ; 
as, bioyr (brisk); bioyrid (briskness); bolyr 
(deaf) ; bouyrid (deafness) ; .mooar (big or 
great); mooad (greatness) , &c. 

90 Some adjectival nouns are made by a part 
of the adjective being changed ; as, jooigh 
(greedy) ; jooid (greediness) ; berchagu (rich) . 
BERCHiD (richness), &c. 

91. Other adjectives are changed for the most 
part; as, giall (bright or white); gillid (bright- 
ness); .marroo (dead) ; merriuid (deadness), &c. 

92. Some other adjectives require jid in place 
of the latter syllable; as, millish (sweet) ; mil- 
jiD (sweetness) ; yrjid (heighth or highness), &c. 

93. I'S and S are sometimes added to the ad- 
jective, and at other times placed instead of the 
last syllable or part; as, dorrachev (dark); 
dorrachy.- (darkness) ; though the change to 


ID, in Remark 89, is sometimes used ; as, dorrid 
(darkness) ; and ynrick (upright, or sincere) ; 
TNRicKvs (uprightness), &c. 

94. For sake of abridging the work, the reader 
is desired, in reference to derivative verbs and 
their conjunction into pronominals, with the 
auxiliary verbs shall, will, ivould, &c., to look to 
the radical verb, as the letter placed at the end 
of the explanation shows the initial from which 
the branch- word is derived ; and the figures of 
reference under the radical answer the meaning 
in the same 


95. There arc several principles peculiar to the 
idiom or phraseology of the Manks language, 
when compared with the English ; such as the 
unnecessariness of the indefinite article a, in 

96. One peculiarity is, that the Manks pos- 
sesses a plural article, nv (the); as, my deixev 
(the men) ; ny claghy.v (the stones) : y and 
YX are the singular definite articles. The collec- 
tive nouns, such as, ollagh (cattle) ; sleih 
(people); LUGHT-xniE (household or family); 
MAASE (kine), &c., are, as in the English, not 
reckoned plural nouns ; therefore, have only the 
definite article yn preceding them. 

97. A grand piinciple in Manks is the adjec- 
tive being placed after the noun or substantive. 
In English, the adjective has precedence ; there- 
fore the quality of a thingis mentioned before the 
thing itself; but in Manks, (more agreeable to 
reason and common sense) the substantive pre- 
cedes the adjective; as, cabbyl mie (a good 
horse); booa ghoo (a black cow); MAonEn 
MOOAR (a big field). There are a few exceptions. 

98. In possessing a p?i/?-a/ a(/;>c^'ye, the Manks 
again has an advantage over the English, (there 
being no diflference in the adjectives of singular 
andpluralinthatlanguage);as, DEijfEYMOOAREY 
(big or great men) ; croink ardey (high hiUs) ; 


99. Another, is the derivative adjective, as I 
have called it, of or belonging to a thing. My 
reason for distinguishing this class of adjectives 
from others is, that there are some nouns that 
have two adjectives which differ materially in 
their meaning ; for instance, the sun; as, laa 
GRiANAGH (a sunny, or sun shiny day), which I 
have left a common adjective; but greiney, I 
have marked an adjective derivative, of or belong- 
ing to the sun; as, cniASs greiney (the heat of 
the sun, or the sun's heat) ; and glion (a glen or 
valley) ; clionn'agh (having glens or valleys) ; 
glioxney (of or belonging to the valley; as, 
FiEE NY CLioNXEY (the ravcus of the valley) ; 
and cassagh (having feet, or footed) ; as, maase 
KiAR CASSAGH (four footcd kinc) ; cosHEY (of the 
foot or feet) . The English of this class of adjecti- 
val words arc aspen, hempen, oaken, baptismal , &c. 

100. Another principle is, the language not 
making plural until three ; the numbers of twenty, 
forty, sixty, eighty, a hundred, a thousand, &c. 
These are not twenty or forty men, but, literally 
twenty-man, &c. And I think the yn to siuach- 
Tixv.v redundant, as in Daniel ix. 25 26. 

101. Another and grand principle is, the em. 
phatic : some instances of this are given in the 
work; but any substantive, &c. may be made 
emphatical hy adding 's, which requires to be 
sounded es to the substantive, &c. ; as, dtv 
chreb's (thy heart, emphatically) : dty obbyr's 
(thy work, emphatically), &c. In the English, the 
reader is left at sea %vithout a compass, if he has 
not learned where to lay the emphasis, as few of 
the words differ in their form in that language 
for being emphatic ; when unempliatical, fhij is 
to be sounded the, and 7/1?/, me, &c. 

102. The substantives being all masculine or fe- 
minine, is another ; there being no such anomaly 
in Manks as a neuter gender ; we have however a 
fewnouns, pronouns, and pronominals common to 
both genders. Some will have it that every word 
in the language is either masculine or feminine. 

103. The verbs running into auxiliary termi- 
nations and pronominals ; as, aoh, ail, al, eil, 
EY, IN, INS, IT, VN, VMS, and ys, as are shown by 
the remarks of reference throughout the work, 
is another principle. 

104. The adjectives and participles throughout 
the language requiring to be brought under the 
letter s', to show the degrees of comparison, as 
set forth in the 5Sth Remark, are exemplified in 
the work under that letter, is another. 

1 05 . The greatest difficulty to attain, by a per- 
son that did not learn it when young, is the 
changing of the initials of mutable consonants, 
and of vowel letters, or the pronunciation of se- 
condary mutes or aspirations. There is very lit- 
tle occasion for such changing in the EngUsh ; 
but to give an English-scholar some idea of it, it 
may be necessary to show him something similar 
in his own language. The words from home re- 
quire no change ; but let him say at home, and he 
can hardly say home without a hiatus, or longer 
stop than ought to be ; he will be very apt to say 
at tome : this is changing the h to t in speaking. 
Or let hun say at all, and if he be not verj' careful 
he will say at tall, or a tall, this is changing the 
a to t. Or let him say the words, make haste, and 
he will be very apt to say makekaste: this is 
changing the h to A- ; and it is, he will be apt to 
say it tis ; this is changing i to t. 

106. And the article an, which is nothing more 
than the article a with an n to come between it 
and the word initialled by a vowel, if it were 
placed before the vowel in the word would 
amount to nearly the same thing ; then an egg 
would be a negg; and an aul would be a naul ; 
an eye would be a neye, &c. &c. ; these are some- 
what like the changing of the initials in the 




10". The force of the pronunciation of second- 
ary or auxiliary mutes (as they are called) is so 
different from that of the primaiy or radical, that 
they are expressed by different figures or letters 
in the Manks; from whence arises often the dif- 
ficulty of finding the etymology of those words 
that branch or are derived from a radical. The 
Irish, to prevent this in their language, have a 
dot, point, or dash, &c. placed over or below the 
letter ; that is, as if 4 or m required to be sounded 
!<. The primary or radical arc always retained, 
but known by the dash or dot, so that the etymo- 
logy of words is easily found in that language. 

I OS. Of the causes of the changing of the mu- 
table initials, (d, j, and t, excepted.) Words of the 
feminine gender change their following words ; 
as, CLAGn VANE (a white stone) ; w^hich would, 
if CLACn were masculine, be clagh bane; 
LAUE VESH (right hand); if laue were mas- 
culine, would be LAUB jesh ; awin vec : now if 
Awijf were of the masculine gender, it would be 


great river) if masculine it would be imooar ; so 
that the adjectives baxe, jesh, beg, mooar, are 
the primary or radical adjectives, which are 
changed by feminine substantives being placed 
before them to vane, yesh, veg, vooar. 
From these examples the learner will see that it 
i.s of the utmost importance, in order to write and 
speak the language correctly, that he should 
know and be well acquainted not only with the 
names and words, but also viith their genders. 

109. Words initialled by vowels are subject to 
changes, as explained in Remarks 60 and 61. 
Mutable consonants being initials are also chang- 
able, to show the preterit, v^dthout any word be- 
fore them ; as, eaih (drown) ; but to show the 
pass time of action I must change eaih to vaih; 
vaih eh ehts cheayn (he drowned or did drown 
him in the sea) ; and cow (take) ; enow eh 
ooiLLEY NY v'avm voym (he took all I had from 
me, or he did take all I had from me) ; and jerk 
(hope, trust, or expect) ; I must change jerk to 


trusted or expected him, and he deceived me) ; and 
MOL (deceive) ; agh vol eh jibe (but he deceived 
me). Baih, gow, jerk, mol, are thus changed 
to their aspirations, vaih, ghow, yerk, vol, &c. 

110. Another cause of change is the vocative 
case, O Yee ! Jee, (God) is here changed to Yee. 
Tar marym, vraar (come with me, brother) ; 
braar is here changed to vraar. O hie Yacob ! 
(O house of Jacob) ; the t in thie and the j in 
Jacob ai-e here changed, jean, is changed to 
yean, and juan to yuan, &c. &c. 

HI. Changes made by the articles y and yn 
being placed before radical words, most of those 
initialled by vowels, borrow, as it were, the n from 
YN, in the pronunciation. The translators of the 
Scriptures have given another n to au, or a a 

(second); as, yn nah (the second) ; and accord- 
ing to this rule, yn aall (the flesh fork) should 

be YNNAALL; YN OLLAGH (the Cattlc), YN nol- 
LAGH; VN irSHTBY (the WatCr), YN NL'SUTEY ; 

&c. ; but they have not been uniform in this 
rule, having given it to some words and with- 
held it from others. Y and yn when placed before 
A change it to y ; c to cA ;/ to the second letter whe 
ther vowel or consonant; but the want of change 
in some of these is so faint that perhaps it would 
be better to retain the / in some than to omit it. 
G changes to gk ; k to ch ; w to u ; which last, 
often in conversation, slides into w. P changes 
to ph ; gu to zvh ; stot; sh to ch ; .5/ to c! ; Y and 
YN do not change ch, d, j, and t. 

112. The pronoun e (his), changes the follow- 
ing mutable initials, viz. : btov and w, when 00, 
u, or w, immediately follow ; c\.o ch -, ch to h ; 
rfto gh; and/ similar to what is said on that 
letter in the preceding Remark. Gto gk; /to 
1/ ; kto ch ; m to v ; and which last, as shown in 
the preceding Remark, often slides into w, in 
conversation. P to ph ; qu to wh ; s and sh to h; 
si to I i ttoh. All the mutables change by the 
above pronoun. 

113. The pronoun e (her), on the contrary, 
changes none of the mutables; but changes 
words initialled by vowels, by requiring h to be 
placed before them. 

114. The words dy (to), dty (thy), and my, 
change the mutables exactly in the same manner 
as E (his) does, as shown in Remark 112. 

115. The changes caused by placing the ad- 
verb ro (too), before adjectives and participles 
are as follows : 5 to a or to w, when second letter; 
c to ch ; ch to h; d to gh ; g to gh, with a few 
exceptions to 7/ ,• j to 1/ ; k to ch ; m to v; p to ph ; 
gu to wh ; s and sh to h; ttoh. 

1 16. The changes caused by the auxiliary verb 
ER (hath, has, have, or haWng, &c.) placed before 
verbs, require n to be placed before all the verbs 
beginning with vowels radically or derivatively. 
A, e, i, 0, u, w, y, change to n; and the gh, when 
an aspiration of g, which, when initialled by n, 
has the sound of ^, and which shows that it ought 
or ought not have that letter; but the translators 
of the Scriptures have written the word goll 
(going), when aspirated to gh; a's, er n'gholl, 
&c. ; and the word gialdyn (promise); as, 
ER n'ghialdyn,— Hei. xi. 1 1 ; and er n' yialdyn, 
— Josh. ix. 21. The same may be said of giarey, 
&c. Er changes 5 to u ; cA to / ; d to gh; /to v, 
or the next letter in the syllable ; g to gh ; j to 
y ; ktog; mtov; pto ph ; gu to ivh ; s and sh 
to h; si to I; and t to d. 

117. The changes of the mutable consonants, 
by placing the adverb peer (very), before adjec- 
tives, are as follow : i to « ; c to ch; gto gh ; k 
to cJi; mto V; p to p?i; and gu to cw. 

118. The changes the pronoun nyn causes, 
when placed before verbs and substantives, are 
as follow : Before words initialled by vowels, 


many require to borrow the last ii in the pronun- i similar to the case of g by cua, as shown in 
ciaHoQ, in a similar case with yn. Nyn changes examples in this page ; k to g , p to b ; <j to g , 
Atom; ctog; chtoj; ftov; g to gh, OX y, \ and < to rf.

In concluding my Observations and Remarks, I 
csnnot but admire the construction, texture, and 
beauty of the Manks Language, and how the 
words initially change their cases, moods, tenses 
degrees, &c. It appears like a piece of exquisite 
network, interwoven together in a masterly man- 
ner, and framed by the hand of a most skilfr' 
worknmn, equal to the composition of the most 
lea aed, and not the production of chance. — 
The depth of meaning that abounds in many of 
the words must be conspicuous to every person 
versed in the language. 

Having but few verbs, its bre^lty may be com- 
plained of by some, but this deficiency is amp- 
ly supplied in the same manner as when a like 
want occurs in the English. When a substantive 
or adjective has no verb belonging to itself, ano- 
ther verb is placed before the noun or adjective ; 

PS, DY VE (to be) ; DY GHOAItL (tO take) ; DY 
GEDDYN (to get) ; DY CHUR (tO giVB, pUt, Send), 

lo, mrVe, or perfoim), &c. 

We have no verb for maynrey (happy)— neither 
has the English— nor its noun, maynrys (hap. 
piness) ; but we say, dy ve maynrey (to be hap- 
py), &c. That om- ancestors (the translators of 
the Scriptures) were tenacious that no infringe- 
ment should be made in this particular is obvious, 
as the Scriptures, with a few exceptions to their 
orthography, &c., are an invaluable work. The 
verb fopray occurs above two hundred times in 
the English Scriptures ; yet the translators have 
not once used that mongrel word, prayll, or its 
parent, prayal, (see Remark 79), which, and the 
like, are now generally used without reserve. I 
do not, however, allude to the Clergy, who, to 
their credit, always say ooaill padjer ; ec 
PAHJER ; jannoo PADJER, &c. ; and When there 
is no necessity, we should not borrow ft-om the 
English, but endeavour to keep the language as 
pure as possible.

Clarke's note on John, vi. 9, is quite appli-

Had this word been written Bivrein, it would

author observes of the orthography and pro- 
nunciation of words, fixed beyond the reach 
of etymology to alter, have, like land, limita- 
tions to their rights. When orthography or 
pronimciation has obtained a long standing, 
though by false title, it is perhaps better to 
leave it in quiet possession, than to disturb the

Da, p. p. 8. to him, for him, him, to, for; as, 
chur rnee da eh (I gave it to him) ; te aym da 
(I have it for him) ; Ihig da (let him) ; eeck 
da Cesar (pay to Cesar) ; — syn, idem. It may 
not perhaps " be amiss to state here that this 
word has something very singular belonging 
to it as respects the idiom of the English lan- 
guage, but which is, however, peculiar to the 
Manks. A person that would attempt to trans- 
late passages wherein this word occurs in the 
Manks Scriptures, according to the Hamilto- 
nlan or interlinary system, would think it su- 
perfluous in many instances, especially where 
it is placed before plural and feminine nouns ; 
as in 1 Tim. v. ix. Ny Ihig da ben-treoghe ve 
goit ; which, to translate literally, would run 
thus, let not him a widow be taken ; and in 
Gen. chap i. Ihig da ny ushtaghyn (let him the 
waters) ; Ihig da ny eeanlee (let him the 
fowls), &c. &c. A learner must not hesi- 
tate to sacrifice the idiom of his own language 
to learn that of another, but must form 
phrases altogether incorrect and foreign to 
his own language. 

Da a, a. 8. two, the dual number; adv. twice,

used in composition, to be adverbial ; as in er 
aggie dy bee (lest that) ; er aggie dy beagh (for 
fear that be) ; or (for fear there be) ; dy row

FiAu'NYS, s. m. heaven, the seat of God, of

mortal man. Of the etymology of this word 
it may be remarked that, as heavenly or spirit- 
ual things cannot be understood but by their 
being compared with things temporal, Mr. 
James Macpherson', in a treatise on the im- 
mortality of the soul, page 180, when speaking 
of the ancient Celtics, says that it is {rom Jltith 
(noble or blessed) and inny.'i (an island) the no- 
ble or blessed island. They imagined or be- 
lieved that the virtuous went aiter death to 
some noble, blessed, or happy island ; and 
hence the word Flaunys. Our Phlaase (a pa- 
lace) may also be from hence. This word is 
never made use of for the aerial heaven. See

word still retained in our language agreeable 
to that meaning, 1. Sam. xiii. 20 ; it is the 
proper Manks of piece ; the word Peeish, which 
is too often made use of, is only a corruption 
of the English. Why some insist that it means 
bread may be easily accounted for ; as, give 
the child a piece. Cur meer da'n Ihiannoo 
(give a piece of bread to the child). The above 
ellipsis may account for it. It is often the

improperly; as, in J^ec.xliii. 2, " Ny gow sheese 
pys Egypt," and in 2 Kings, ii. 18, " Ny gow 
Jee," which ought to have been Nagh.

This letter and its changes see remarks 30 and 59 ; 
it takes in derivatives from S. Most words in 
T would sound better, according to the Manks 
pronunciation with h after them, as shown in 
Remark 30. 

Ta, o. (present tense) am, are, art, is; is an an- 
swer in the affirmative corresponding with yes, 
or ay, in English, though not the same part of 
speech. Ta mee (I am) ; ta skin (we are) ; ta 
00, or as contracted, t'ou (thou art) ; ta eh, or as 
contracted, t'eh (he is); and as contracted for the 
neuter gender, te (it is). There are other words 
that answer affirmatively when the question I3 
put to suit them, as, she (yes) ; nee (will) ; fad 
(can); &c., &c. the answers negatively would be 
cha nee, cha jean, cha vod, &c. There is great 
nicety in these replies ; but however illiterate 
the Manksman maybe, he never fails using the 
proper word. Ta is only used in assertions and 
affirmations: see vel, whichhasthe same mean- 
ing in interrogations.
