Gaelic things

I mean that often by forcing one form of a language, often will force
related lingos to go there own way.. Basically if Ireland wants to speak
Erse (Irish Gaelic) they might piss Scot Gaelic speakers to go there own
way. But if the speakers of Irish, Scot, and Manx Gaelic were to get
together and have a common Gaelic. Or do they expect it to happen

It is like how mid-west English seems to be the standard, but sometimes
one regions form becoming official, annoys the other dialects speakers,
who would rather sink into obscurity than to join with the "standard".

What do you mean by that, Mike?
