Speech-enabled dialogue systems developed within an iCALL framework offer a potentially powerful tool for dealing with the challenges of teaching/learning an endangered language where learners have limited access to native speaker models of the language and limited exposure to the language in a truly communicative setting. This paper explores the major potential of virtual conversational agent systems with inbuilt simulated ‚Äėintelligence‚Äô for the Irish (endangered) language context.

Keywords: Irish (Gaelic), dialogue partner, text-to-speech synthesis
