|ShortDescription=One of the so-called <em>Irish grammatical tracts</em>. It is later in composition than the other tracts and has been described by Osborn Bergin, the first (modern) editor, as forming an ‘introductory’ primer to some of the earlier texts, covering as it does “a mass of information on spelling and pronunciation, metrics, the government of prepositions, syntax, nominal composition and derivation [along with an] amount of explanation and commentary”. As the tract fails to address some of the issues it raises at the beginning, it has the appearance of being incomplete.
