The transformation of Ireland from a predominantly Irish speaking country to a primarily English speaking country was the most profound social change to take place on the island in the course of the 19th century. Yet the nature, manner, and course of that transformation are less than clear. In this collection, scholars from a variety of disciplines engage with the moving linguistic frontier that obtained in Ireland, in order better to understand the multiplicity of reasons for this linguistic shift, as well as to expand and to deepen an appreciation of the manner in which it took place.

 

Ba é claochlú na hÉireann ó thír labhartha Gaeilge den chuid is mó go tír labhartha Béarla go príomha ar an athrú sóisialta is suntasaí a thit amach ar an oileán i gcaitheamh na 19ú haoise. Fós féin, níl nádúr, modh, agus cúrsa an chlaochlaithe sin róshoiléir in aon chor. Sa bhailiúchán seo, tugann scoláirí ó éagsúlacht disciplíní aghaidh ar an teorainn gluaisteach teangeolaíoch a chonacthas in Éirinn, d’fhonn tuiscint níos fearr a fháil ar an iliomad cúiseanna leis an athrú teangeolaíoch seo, chomh maith le léirthuiscint ar an mbonn ina tharla a leithéid a leathnú agus a dhoimhniú.
