The students are gradually introduced to all aspects of Old Irish grammar. In semester 1, first the phonology and orthography of Old Irish are introduced. After this, the inflectional classes of the nouns and adjectives, the present stem classes of the verbs, as well as central chapters of syntax, e.g. inflected prepositions and infixed pronouns, are the main focus of the attention.
Students taking this module outside of Medieval Irish, please contact the programme coordinator, Prof. David Stifter (email@example.com), before registering. No previous knowledge of the Irish language is required, but a readiness to engage with basic linguistic concepts is necessary.
