Manx has ben compared to the Cinderalla of the Celtic languages: It is much rather a Sleeping Beauty, kissed awake, with a long and happy life before her... A full and complete grammatical description of Manx.
Kelten, number 41
This important book is certain to be appreciated and used by teachers and students. Those of us who may be fluent and literate in related Celtic languages, such as Scottish Gaelic and Irish, but who may find Manx orthography a somewhat daunting and “inconsistent” mask, will soon regard this book as an indispensable vade mecum.

This beautifully written new grammar of the Manx language is of considerable benefit to all interested in our national history.
On behalf of the North American Manx Association may I congratulate Jennifer on this highly informative Manx book. I am sure it will prove to be an excellent reference guide and must-have for all interested Manx language parties.
