This is a graded introduction to Middle Welsh. An extensive first chapter on orthography is followed by 49 chapters each dealing with one grammatical topic. Each chapter is replete with examples exemplifying the point under discussion and nearly every chapter contains an exercise with actual excerpts from the Mabinogion along with an accompanying vocabulary list and notes. After every tenth chapter, longer reading excerpts are presented for translation practice. The book contains a glossary as well as an answer key, which makes it ideal for independent learners.
