Ag cruthú na teanga? / Making up the language?

Haighea a chairde,

Seo alt suimiúil a d’aimsigh Jonathan inné, faoi théarmaíocht úr sa Ghaeilge agus cad é mar a ghlactar/ nach nglactar í i bpobal na Gaeilge:

Baineann an plé seo le hábhar mo thráchtais agus sílim go bhfuil sé thar a bheith suimiúil. Ar thaobh amháin, caithfear téarmaíocht úr a chruthú ionas go mbeidh an teanga úsáideach go nua-aimseartha. Ar an taobh eile, is dócha nach bhfuil an pobal dúchais páirteach sa phróiseas cruthaíochta, agus dá bharr sin ní ghlacann siad leis na téarmaí úra a chruthaítear. De réir mo thaighde féin, ciallaíonn sé sin nach mbíonn foghlaimeoirí i suíomh Gaeltachta ábalta brath ar muintir na háite le téarmaíocht nua-aimseartha / sháiniúil a fhoghlaim, agus úsáidtear téarmaí i mBéarla, dá thairbhe sin, faraor.

Le meas,

Amanda

Hey folks,

I wanted to share this interesting article with you that Jonathan found yesterday, about the creation of new terminology in Irish:

http://corkirish.wordpress.com/2013/07/29/making-the-language-up/

 

This discussion is connected to my thesis topic, and I think it’s a really interesting point. On one side, new terminology has to be created so that Irish is a modern-day working language. On the other hand, it’s apparent that native speakers don’t get involved in the terminology creation process, necessarily, and thus don’t typically accept or use these newly created terms. According to my own (limited) research, Irish learners in a Gaeltacht setting then can’t rely on native speakers to learn these new terms, and so the English words are used instead, unfortunately. Very interesting dynamic.

All the best,

 

Amanda
