Gadelica: A Journal of Modern Irish Studies
A title history is the publication history of a journal and includes a listing of the family of related journals. The most common relationship is to a previous and/or continuing title, where a journal continues publishing with a change to its official title. Other common relationships include a journal that is a supplement to another journal, a journal that is absorbed into another journal, a journal that splits into two or more new journals, or two or more journals that merge to form a new journal. For each of these related journals, the title history lists the dates published.
Description: Gadelica was a short-lived publication from the nineteenth century. It was founded and edited by the influential scholar of Irish language, T. F. O'Rahilly. Gadelica sought to pursue and promote investigation into the area of Celtic studies, including philology. Articles focus on modern Irish language from 1600 onwards, and Irish literature also features prominently. There are also reproductions and discussions of Irish texts from original manuscripts, both prose and verse, as well as folk songs and folk tales. Gadelica's articles are written primarily in Irish.
