A Manx Alphabet
This delightful book for young people, A Manx Alphabet, is beautifully illustrated by Isle of Man based Vicky Webb.
With illustrations reminiscent of Eric Carle, it is attractively designed to engage young children, whilst giving them a taste of the Manx language. Containing full-page images, it begins with arran (bread), bainney (milk) and clag (clock) and moves through to V, W and Y (the Manx alphabet does not feature X and Z).
The choice of words was made in consultation with the Bunscoill Ghaelgagh and others, keeping children and non-Manx-speaking adults in mind. It has a full pronunciation guide and translation for all the terms used in the book. Priced at just £5 this book would make a wonderful gift for Manx language beginners and new parents far and wide.
