- ebooks (this page contains 8 unique ebooks, and four other ebooks which are earlier versions of the earliest ebooks, a total of twelve downloads). Words and descriptions of the ebooks are also included. The 8 unique books have a total of 864 pages between them. Unique ebooks means not including the four earlier versions.
The descriptions at the top of each section of the Book of Dunbarra do not describe everything within that section, but give a brief outline of some of the important points. Note that all the articles contain links or references at the bottom to other things I have written about or connected to those subjects.
Note that the information explanations and articles contained within the ebooks is entirely separate from that which is contained within the 'Book of Dunbarra' itself, aka, this website.
Note that with regards to the word numbers per page in the website sections, this also includes words in the references parts and title area, although these only make up a small amount of each section.
Note that the order of the section is not the same as the order in which they were actually written, their arrangement into numbers happened in January 2023-25th April 2023.
Note that the descriptions of each section at the beginning do not necessarily describe the sections in the exact words, they also do not necessarily talk about credits/references, which are present at the bottom of pages.
Note that the separately downloadable ebooks contain references and bits related to many of the topics included on this website/in the book of Dunbarra, but the material, comments and content are nevertheless different, and both the information on the website and that in the ebooks is needed to give a more complete picture of ma research. The ebooks also contain a far larger number of research topics, languages and philosophy.
About the name: The Book of Dunbarra takes its name from the Gaelic words dùn and barr, connected with the town of Dunbar in the south-east of Scotland, a name recorded in early Welsh as Dynbaer, and translatable in Scottish Gaelic as Dùn Barr. The website is a book in the sense of a book being a place which I hope inspires kindness and hope.
About the author:
My name is Linden Alexander Pentecost. I find all languages interesting and beautiful, this website is a small contribution to the love of languages. I am from Britain, I am not sure what my ancestors spoke, but, some English and likely northern English dialects, perhaps some form of Brittonic and Goidelic. I thank my family and friends for being so patient and good towards me.
