I agree with Craig.  TYG has it's uses, but I certainly couldn't rely on
it as my only source of learning.   The grammar explanations in Hugo's
seem to be so much clearer to me.

As for the tapes in Hugo's and TYG, I don't care for either.
Personally, I rely on Catri\ona Parson's "Gaelic through Conversation"
as my guide to pronunciation.  Her voice is clear and measured, and very
easy to mimic.  If she did grammar, I feel she'd corner the market!
