Coonceil ny Gaelgey (English: Manx Gaelic Advisory Council[1][2]) is the regulatory body responsible for the Manx language.

The Coonceil was set up in December 1985 as a sub-committee of the Manx Heritage Foundation. It is responsible for the provision of authoritative Manx versions of the titles of government departments and street names, and the creation of new words and phrases.

The Coonceil supports private, public and voluntary organisations who want to use the language more. Many organisations now make use of the language not only to add value to their services[how?] but also to help foster the Island's language and culture.
