Thread Name: Gaelic/Irish: the word fulachtadh
Subject: RE: Gaelic/Irish: the word fulachtadh
I'm showing my ignorance here.
The Leabhar Breac is a document of great antiquity, I get that,
so the language in which it is written
is at some remove from the Gaelic of recent centuries.

That said,
I have no clue when you stop speaking of "Gaelic"
and when it becomes "middle Irish"
or "old Irish."


Phillipa, your contribution is especially appreciated, thank you.
