I wish to apologize for delaying the posting of this summary for so long.

I wish to thank the following people for pointing me to the resources
listed below, and of course all the people that contributed to the
creation of such resources. They are, in alphabetical order,

- Brian Curnin (School of Celtic Studies, Dublin Institute for Advanced
Studies), who pointed me to his own study of Iorras Aithneach Irish in
West Galway and to Arndt Wigger's 'Caint Ros Muc', both published by the
Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. Both works can be accessed online
via the School's webpage

- Arndt Wigger (Bergische Universitt Wuppertal), who made the
transcriptions of Caint Ros Muc available to me in PDF;

- Briony Williams (Language Technologies Unit, University of Wales,
Bangor), who directed me to Margaret Deuchar's corpus of colloquial Welsh
(radio shows and informal conversations), available online via Margaret
Deuchar's personal page at

To all of them and to the people at the Linguist List, thank you very much
for your help.
