If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to curse in Gaelic like Jamie, Murtagh, and more, you need Michael Newton’s Naughty Little Book of Gaelic. At least, that’s what Diana Gabaldon believes.
When a fan as Outlander promo team how to say their names in Gaelic, Diana Gabaldon joined in. She was interested to hear if the promo team had ever read Michael Newton’s “Naughty Little Book of Gaelic.” It’s got a much longer title, but everyone who had read it knew what she meant.
It’s certainly the book to read if you want to learn how to curse like Jamie, Murtagh, and many other Scots in the “Outlander” novel and TV series.

Sure, there are plenty of books that will help you learn Gaelic seriously, but sometimes you want to swear and curse in a language that isn’t your own. That way you can swear in front of anyone without them realizing, right? Well, it’s time for “The Naughty Little Book of Gaelic: All the Scottish Gaelic You Need to Curse, Swear, Drink, Smoke and Fool Around.”
The book tells us absolutely everything you need to know to get the Outlander vocabulary down to a tee. It wouldn’t be surprising to hear that Gabaldon had used it herself for her novels since they are full of Gaelic. She didn’t always have someone on hand to help correct her Gaelic! The only downside to the book is that it won’t help you pronounce the words. You’ll need Google’s help for that.
This could definitely be a novelty gift for your Outlander-loving mom for Mother’s Day next month. What do you think?
