Also I believe some one spent alot of time and effort to make Hebrew
more relevent to the modern world. The Hebrew you hear in the orthodox
Synagoges is not the one you hear perse in the streets.. Remember for
the majority of Jews/Israeli, they spoke a varienty of languages. Though
nationalistic pride in their faith and identity sure helped alot.

People need to have reasons to learn a new or renew a language. Irish
has little reasons to be revitalized. Welsh much the same, but it is
doing well so far as reports go.. So what is the Irish doing wrong?

Gaelic as a conlang would be an interesting project. Using basic forms
from the variety of Gaelic forms. Somethat Manx, Scot, and Irish
speakers can identify with and non-speakers can learn with pride their
old language..
