Hello all.

I have one humble request. I've been asking around about one word: Aiséirithe. I have been told its meaning, its part-of-speech, and how to pronounce. I was hoping to hear the same from at least one other source. Any assistance will be VERY much appreciated.

Thank you.

As far as I know, Ami, Aiséirithe is the verbal noun of aiséirigh - resurrection. As such, you may expect to find it in "aiséiríthe na gcorp" (resurrection of the body)

That's the verb alright, "aiséirigh" (rise again). It's verbal noun, however, is "aiséirí". "Aiséirithe" is the verbal adjective, also called the past participle, meaning "risen again, resurrected". It can be pronounced roughly ASH-AY-rih-huh, although in Cois Fhairrge they say just ASH-AY-ree (because they drop aitches in the middle of words).

MANY MANY GRATEFUL THANKS to Dennis and Larry! If I could trouble you just to clarify your answer: in the phonetic pronunciation you gave, first, which syllable gets the strongest emphasis? Second, is the AY a long sound, like hay, or an eye sound - ash ay ree, or ash eye ree?

Dennis's answer confirms exactly what I had been told. If anyone knows anything to the contrary, I would be forever grateful to be told. This will become part of a permanent name change, so it really matters to be that I be sure to get it right.

Again, thanks.

Amy
