This would be less of a necessity for OI than Modern Irish, since we're
assuming [?] that one isn't interested in speaking OI.
BTW, I don't know of any textbook for Modern Irish that has a lot of these
types of exercises, despite the large number of differences between Irish
and English in idiom and syntax -- at least I haven't seen any on this side
of the pond.
