You know of schools where they teach Scottish-Gaelic literature? The only place where you really come across Scottish-Gaelic in a literary context is in songs.
Fair enough. :hmm: Though I thought maybe Isle of Skye (Inner Hebrides) primary schools and the higher-learning Gaelic schools do. Obviously not everybody goes to these though

Sorry I have nothing of value to add to this. Maybe best just to see for myself. I could've been reading into it assuming literature meant novels and such rather than music

That's quite a different story then

None of that will survive. Even in the cultures of speakers of much less threatened languages, these things are already dying.

What's dying or fading out? I hope it's not street signs. Literature can go away and festivals can stay :)

Even the people themselves, vanishing into thin air :lol:

I just thought maybe you knew something that I didn't. No worries :)
