"Idioms are the key to speaking a language in a natural manner. This is an updated version of a title published in 1927, and revised in 1932, by Duncan MacDonald, the Headmaster of Sandwickhill School, in Stornoway, Scotland. Much of the Gaelic and English translations have been updated with the North American learner in mind. In addition to the nearly 2000 idioms from MacDonald we have added a collection of over 300 from An Deò-ghréine, the newspaper of An Comunn Gàidhealach from the early 1900's, and over 200 more collected in Cape Breton and mainland Nova Scotia"--Provided by publisher.
