“Foclóirí agus Foclóirithe na Gaeilge”

 

Is léachtóir le litríocht agus teanga na Gaeilge é Liam Mac Amhlaigh i gColáiste Oideachais Froebel i mBaile Átha Cliath. Tá suim mhór aige i bhfoclóireacht na Nua-Ghaeilge agus tá sé díreach tar éis leabhar nua a scríobh “Foclóirí agus Foclóirithe na Gaeilge” ag cur síos ar stair na bhfocloirí Gaeilge. Déanann sé mionscrudú ar na focloirí ó foclóir Uí Chléirigh i 1643 go dtí an lá atá inniú ann, le foclóirí Gaeilge-Béarla agus Gaeilge-Laidin san áireamh.
Labhair Brian Mullen le Liam faoin leabhar cuimsitheach.
