Dear Brian, I loved your website, these are my favourite lines of many-- "Irish is a language of wonderful sounds and challenging complexity that I am still fond of, although my fluency has been impaired by five decades living in Canada. In Dublin a certain fluency seems to return when stimulated by bilingual signs, television broadcasts on RTE, or a helping hand from Arthur Guinness. It is worth noting that Irish has one characteristic that makes it absolutely unique among European languages: if you speak it in the company of Ulster Unionists, they immediately begin foaming at the mouth. If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself on your next visit to Belfast." Much to tell you, when you receive this please send me a regular email, and I will send you a full reply with several short attachments. Don Smith (my new book SEEN BUT NOT SEEN, a study of non-Indigenous Canadians' perspectives of the First Nations, 1840s to Today, comes out in two to three weeks (Univ. of Toronto Press). All the very best, Don
