gaelic
werewolf ciomar a tha thu?

Tha mi gle mhath!

will anyone speak this with me? I need to learn it. Please, it will ease some of the guilt that i have because i have, not purposefully, been letting all of the music and traditions of erin that my family have thus far upheld continue aging and dying with my great aunts and uncles, without making any attempts to save them. Please

werewolf alright first lesson....tha means am/is/are...so let's take a basic noun like cu...which means dog...and we'll throw in a word like agus for and....a name...and then maybe the word road...so.....the sentence is....tha blue star agus cu air an rathad. That means...blue star and the dog are on the road. Okay...another good phrase...ciomar a tha thu? which is how are you...and the answer is....tha mi gle mhath....i am very good....are you gonna tune in for lesson two? 020502

werewolf no offense taken...or is cuma liom...(i don't mind)....i want to take more comprehensive verbal lessons too because i need work on my accent....i learned from my relatives but they're far away and i don't call them enough to be so good at it. And your answer was maith go leor (good enough/ok). Phrases of the day are Go raibh maith agat (thank you) and Ta failte romhat (you're welcome). Next we'll learn how to introduce ourselves and ways to ask someone how they are. As for your phrase....i've got a better one...here you go...say this to them....i hope they speak gaelic....folionn gra grain. Anyways....untill you guys learn more...beagan a ra agus e a ra go maith....(say little but say it well) because.... is fearr Gaeilge b hriste na Bearla cliste....(broken irish is better than clever english)....anyways....slan go foill (goodbye for now) 020504

lycanthrope Ta mo chleamhnas deanta o athru areir
s'ni mo na go dtaithnionn an bhean liom fein
ach fagfaidh me i mo dhiaidh i
'gus imeoidh me liom fein
ar fud na gcoillte craobhach.

My match was made late last night to a girl i neither love nor like
but i'll take my advice and leave her behind
and go running the wild woods all over.

Shiiul mise thoir agus shiuil mise thiar
Shiul mise corcaigh 'gus sraide bh'I'ath Cliath
ach samhail de mo chailin deas ni fhaca mise riamh.
'Si an bhean dubh a dhfhag mo chroi craite.

I walked up and i walked down
i walked Cork and Dublin and Belfast towns,
but no equal to my true love could i find,
she's the wee lass that's left my heart broken.

D'eirigh me ar maidin dha uair roimh an la
'gus fuair me litir o mo mhile ghra
Chuala me an smoillin 's an londubh a ra.
gur ealiagh mo ghra thar saile.

I got up two hours before day
and i got a letter from my true love
I heard the blackbird and the linnet say
that my love had crossed the ocean

Andrew Heyyyyyyyy moondaughter, you can't take online lessons. I tried taking online lessons at the same time i was taking ... real... lessons and the online ones just confused me. Plus, the pronunciation and accent are just bizarre. Ahhh, i haven't messed with irish since last spring. i miss my class...
just thinking about how i've been taught to say "irish" not "gaelic" because when people say gaelic they mean scottish gaelic, not irish gaelic. "if youre ever in ireland and you say you speak 'gaelic' you'll just get weird looks" .... i miss christiona.

claideb As I understand it, the whole political "Irish" vs. "Gaelic" thing is only anns a Bheurla / as Bearla: in English. Gaeilge is the "Irish" form and Gaeidhlig the Scots-Gaelic, but they both come from the Mean-Ghaeilge (middle-Gaelic) Goidelc (my apologies for the lack of fadai ...
