              This volume is the first full-length publication to systematically unpack and analyze the linguistic practices and ideologies of new speakers specifically in an Irish language context. The book introduces the theoretical foundations of the new speaker framework as it manifests it...self in the Irish setting, describes its historical precedents, and traces its evolution to today. The book then draws upon a rich set of data and research methods, including participant observation, ethnographic fieldwork, interviews, and focus group discussions, to examine the new speaker phenomenon in Irish in more detail, looking at new speakers' language practices and usage and the ways in which they position their linguistic identities both within their respective communities and in juxtaposition with native speakers. While the book's focus is on Irish, the volume will contribute to a greater understanding of new speaker practices and ideologies in minority language contexts more generally, making this key reading for students and scholars in sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, language policy and planning, anthropology, and Irish studies.
