A €6m project is set to produce the first new Irish-English dictionary in 50 years.
Foras na Gaeilge's dictionary will add thousands of new Irish words into the lexicon.
Technological words in particular will form the bulk of the new words.
Cathal Convery, project manager for the new dictionary, said: "The coverage in the dictionary 50 years ago, while it was excellent at its time, didn't cover things like Irish usage of English.
"The way that we would speak English, it tended to use standard British-English as its starting point and also dictionaries tended to be of a much more formal nature at that time and things of a more casual nature were left out."
