I seriously suggest we move this article over to "Classical Common Gaelic" rather than "Early Modern Irish". The language was not written exclusively in Ireland, but was used contemporaneously in Scotland and in fact longer in the latter. It doesn't have any more in common with Modern Irish than it does with any of the other Goidelic languages. Also, calling it "early Modern Irish" seems to imply that it was the vernacular of Irish spoken in the country during the early modern era when in fact the spoken language was by this time closer to Modern Irish and Classical Gaelic was simply the literary language. --- User:Crazygraham 1. It's not our call to make. In the linguistics literature, this language is called Early Modern Irish. —Angr 23:37, 19 June 2007 (UTC) 1.1. Of what "linguistics literature" do you speak? I've heard it referred to as Classical Common Gaelic before and the ethnologue link provided on the article itself refers to it as "Hiberno-Scottish Gaelic" which leads me t...
I agree with Angr that "Early Modern Irish" is by far the most commonly used term in English for this particular stage in the development of the Goidelic language(s), as is borne out in the volume of linguistic literature on the topic. I personally had never heard of "Classical Gaelic" or "Classical Common Gaelic" until I came here but I think An Siarach and Deacon have supplied sufficient evidence to show that Scottish Gaels, at least, use these terms regularly. I can understand how Scottish Gaels would be annoyed at the use of "Irish" for a language which they quite rightly feel is as much theirs as ours. Studies of Goidelic languages and dialects have certainly been overly hibernocentric in scope. I take Siarach's point about all of the various forms which speakers use to name their own language being essentially one and the same thing at the end of the day. (Incidentally, my family, my various relations and I, being from the Cork and Kerry Gaeltachtaí use only "Gaelainn" or "Gae...
I'm amazed that this article has been highjacked so successfully by politically correct POV pushers. Sure it doesn't sit well with Scottish Gaelic speakers to use the word Irish, but in my experience that's overwhelmingly the words that's been used in the literature, right or wrong. It is not Wikipedia's place to push agendas or to correct the world in it's vocabulary. We are supposed to follow the forms used in the literature. Wikipedia is not about truth! I also find it hard to see how the morass of argument above amounts to any kind of rational decision. There is little evidence of an attempt to reach consensus or willingness to compromise either. In an attempt to return this article to some proximity to reality, I've added an acknowledgment that another term is also used. Please don't do a knee-jerk revert. Angr has already shown this is used in the literature. It's not bold, it's in brackets, please stay calm! ☸ Moilleadóir ☎08:59, 29 June 2008 (UTC) 1. I don't even understand...

Gaelic is a collective term for the closely-related native Celtic speech of Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man., and when the context is clear it may be used without qualification for the Gaelic of an individual region. When the context is specific but unclear, the term may be qualified: Irish Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic, Manx Gaelic.
Its literary form, Classical Gaelic, was used in Ireland and Scotland from the 13th to the 18th century.   The grammar of Early Modern Irish is laid out in a series of grammatical tracts written by native speakers and intended to teach the most cultivated form of the language to student bards , lawyers, doctors, administrators, monks, and so on in Ireland and Scotland.
Gaelic type is a family of Insular script typefaces devised for printing Classical Gaelic. It was widely used from the 16th until the mid-18th century or the mid-20th century but is now rarely used. Sometimes, all Gaelic typefaces are called Celtic or uncial although most Gaelic types are not uncials. The "Anglo-Saxon" types of the 17th century are included in this category because both the Anglo-Saxon types and the Gaelic/Irish types derive from the insular manuscript hand. The terms Gaelic typ
