Topic: Irish Gaelic question.
Posted: Friday, June 12, 2009 11:16:24 AM
i'm new here. i've read the terms and guidelines and hope my question meets the requirements. i have searched many sites regarding Irish Gaelic but have come up empty and/or confused. my research has shown me that Celtic languages are extremely complex. i will offer a list of words/phrases here with which i need help. i need proper usage and pronunciation. 1) "sit!" (a command) - i've narrowed it to 'suigh' but no pronunciation; 2) "play" (not a stage play) - i have 'imir' but no pronunciation; 3) "wrestle" - i have 'bheith ag coraiocht'. is there not a one-word translation?; 4) "no!" (a command) - i have 'nil' but no pronunciation; 5) "good girl(s)!" - singular and plural; 6) "come here!"; 7) "stand down!" or "stop!" (commands). any help with these would be much appreciated. thanks in advance!
