Product description

Review

"Full of familiarity, of nostalgia, of humour and warmth. The author's voice brings the book and the language to life with rich stories, with quirks, with colour and poignancy." --Sara Baume, author, Spill Simmer Falter Wither

Product Description

From the author of the bestselling Motherfoclóir, Non-fiction Irish Book of the Year.

A TLS BOOK OF THE YEAR.

What do we talk about when we talk about Irish? When we talk about saving or supporting a language do we mean the musical combination of syllables, or something more profound? How do new words enter a language, and what is the relationship between that strange dialect called Hiberno-English and its parent language?

Craic Baby picks up exactly where Motherfoclóir left off and explores the very new and very old parts of the Irish language from a personal perspective. While Motherfoclóir was steeped in memory and a father-son relationship, Craic Baby hinges on the beginnings of a father-daughter relationship, and how watching a child learn to communicate changes how you think about language.

Craic Baby will share more Irish words and issues connected to the language, in the same style as Motherfoclóir, but treated with greater confidence and more depth.
