yeah, it makes me sad. it looks really cool. i'm scotch irish in heritage, but i've never been there. i did find a site where i could learn, but like i said earlier, it's really hard. nothing is pronounced the way it looks. i'd hate for it to disappear completely though.

If pronunciation is a problem for you (which I can imagine, because Scottish Gaelic spelling tends to be very histiorical), maybe Irish would be a better choice. It's spoken by a lot more people - though it's still very much a minority language in Ireland - and it went through a spelling reform in 1948 which did away with some of the historical elements in the written language, so the pronunciation should be more straight-forward as well.
