A book published as part of the Isle of Man's Year of Culture is aiming to illustrate the "natural" way to learn Manx Gaelic.
Lioar-lhaih Ghaelgagh: Original Manx Gaelic Prose 1821-1907 will be launched in Douglas on 9 January.
The book includes archive newspaper articles discussing issues of the day including politics and folklore.
It has been published by Culture Vannin in association with Manx Gaelic Society (Yn Çheshaght Ghailckagh).
A spokesman said he hopes the book "will enable more Manx speakers and students to enjoy and learn from material produced by men who learnt their Manx in a natural environment in the nineteenth century."
