|Title:||'Sounds Irish: The Irish Language in Australia' by Dymphna Lonergan||Contributor(s):||Ryan, John Sprott (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1748||Abstract:||This milestone text treats excitingly of an aspect of settler language in Australia that has been too long neglected and is more significant culturally than any possible NESB Scottish linguistic record. The two bases of the study are that Ireland, up to the Great Famine of the 1840s, was only partially an English-speaking country; and a challenge to the orthodoxy that eighteenth and nineteenth century Australian Irish-speakers did not leave written record in Australia of their native tongue.||Publication Type:||Review||Source of Publication:||Reviews in Australian Studies, 1(1), p. 156-157||Publisher:||British Australian Studies Association||ISSN:||1750-7871||Field of Research (FOR):||200503 British and Irish Literature||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.nla.gov.au/openpublish/index.php/ras/article/view/601/672||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 178
