O knihe

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The history of the Irish language begins with the arrival of speakers of Celtic languages in Ireland. The precise date is an open question, debated by linguists and archaeologists. Some scholars put the earliest date at ca. 1200 BC, while others posit dates between 2600 and 2000 BC. The earliest written form of the language, known to linguists as Primitive Irish, is found in Ogham inscriptions from the fifth and sixth century AD, found primarily in southern Ireland as well as in Wales and Cornwall, where it was brought by settlers from Ireland to sub-Roman Britain. After the conversion to Christianity in the 400s, Old Irish begins to appear as glosses and other marginalia in Latin manuscripts, beginning in the 500s. It evolved in the 900s to Middle Irish, which was slightly influenced by Norse. Early Modern Irish was a literary language that represented a transition between Middle and Modern Irish. It was used by writers until the 17th century, in the course of which they began writing in the vernacular dialects; Ulster Irish, Connacht Irish and Munster Irish.
