If anyone could help with a Gaeilge translation (and pronunciation) for the word "Solidarity" (or a close approximation), it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Two words are given in my dictionary.

dlúthpháirtíocht

and

comhghuaillíocht

Someone else will have to help you with the pronunciation. I can't get my mind and my tongue to work together on these!

Le meas,

James (eile)

That's a couple of mouthfuls you've got there.

/dlu:fa:r't'i:@xt

/ko:ghu:@li:@xt

I can't do a phonetic symbol for the groad "gh".

A cruder version would be:

DLOO-fahr-chee-ukht

KOH-ghoo-uh-lee-ukht

I think most people would pronounce them with a secondary stress on the second syllable.
