For minority languages in the twenty-first century increasingly overshadowed by their global counterparts, language maintenance and revitalisation are of paramount importance. Closely linked to these issues is the question of corpus planning. This essay will focus on two projects in Scottish Gaelic which will play a major part in preserving and maintaining the language by providing it with high quality lexicographical and research resources: Faclair na Gàidhlig and Corpas na Gàidhlig respectively ; the essay concludes with a brief case study on Gaelic numerals which illustrates how Corpas na Gàidhlig can powerfully enhance our understanding of Gaelic.
