Tionscadal na Nod

An annotated collection of abbreviations and other scribal devices from vernacular Irish manuscripts, intended to make it easier for students and others to read, explore and enjoy the work of Irish scribes. This initiative was conceived in 2011 and arose from a discussion on OLD-IRISH-L, an electronic mailing list devoted to early Irish language and literature.
