The Syntax of the Sentence in Old Irish
Old Irish is the language of Ireland in the period from the 8th to the 10th century AD, and is the oldest Celtic language well enough attested for adequate grammatical study. The book provides the only available detailed linguistic analysis of the syntactic structure of the Old Irish sentence.

The emphasis is on the communicative content and intent of the sentences of the corpus.
