Forum rules


The purpose of this forum is to provide a place for people who are interested in the Irish language and various Celtic languages to discuss them, to practice them, and to share information about them, particularly (but not exclusively) in the context of traditional music and culture.

This is not a "translation forum," per se, though translation requests may occasionally be honored at the discretion of the moderators. If you're seeking a one-time translation for something like a tattoo, engraving, wedding vow, or other such purpose, we strongly recommend that you visit our friends at ILF: http://irishlearner.awyr.com

I thought it was C&F Enterprise, as the current lingo goes.

However, I'm a rank beginner at the Irish language, and I'm looking forward to this Irish Language forum.

Thank you, Dale!

Great, this forum's going to make even less sense than the one about Flanges :D

Here's all of the Irish I know. "Would one of you lads pour me a wee glass of guiness?"

I purchased a self-teaching course called Irish on Your Own. It came with cassette tapes. It seemed pretty good the few times I used it. I would enjoy learning more about Irish Gaelic.

If this forum could be incomprehensible, then just wait until the "old" Irish script gets used, the one with the dots over certain vowels!

:-D

Dale, ta tu go han mhaith, ar fad!

--James

P.S. I'm hoping that's the polite thank-you that I think it is. Dale, if I just called you something horrible, I do apologize. :)

According to my dictionary, you just called my Uncle Han an oven-broiled leather bridle. Them's fighting words, Peeples.

Aha! So you're the one and only sucker^H^H^H^H^H^H person who bought a copy of my "Swamp and Bridge Buyer's English-Irish Dictionary".

No, no. He's questioning your ability to go do Chinese mathematics, and calling it a fad. If I were you, I'd bonk him over the head with your abacus.

I said "thanks," a stór. Your response is "tá fáilte romhat" (you're welcome) :D

Peeplj said "you're very, very good."

Tin-titan: What you want is: "Ba mhaith liom gloine bheag Guinness, le do thoil"

Seo duit! (hands tin-titan a virtual pint). :wink:

"Irish on Your Own" is a very good starter program. We'll be more than happy to help you supplement it.

(Psss...Cork? The dots go over the consonants!)

I'm mostly Welsh (as all good Joneses are). I'm quite handy at languages and have always wanted to learn Welsh...no time...no time.

Kudos to the Irish (and C&F) for what they're doing to preserve their glorious mumblings. :thumbsup:
