Manx Gaelic (Manx Gaelic: Gaelg) Is the main language of the Isle of Man. It evolved from Primitive Irish, along with the other Celtic languages. Its closest relatives are Irish Gaelic and Scots Gaelic. All children on the Isle of Man learn it in primary and secondary school, and some grow up bilingual. There is also a small number of native speakers as well.
Manx Gaelic is a very phonetic language, meaning that words are spoken the way they are spelt. Certain letters are sometimes interchangeable.
