The accepted pronounciation is to use "Gah-lic" for Scots Gaelic and "Gay-lic"
for Irish Gaelic. This is what 99% of people in the Highlands say. Most of
the people who pronounce Scots Gaelic as "Gay-lic" don't have Gaelic so how
would they know. They make the mistake that English is a phonetic language.
