I am trying to make a web page for the Irish langauage oriented for the "grammar-impaired" and I was trying to make some charts showing the basics to noun declination. Using the nouns declinated at this website as a guide: http://mbm.8m.com/irish/declination.htm,http://mbm.8m.com/irish/declination.htm
I have just about everything I kneed to start creating my site but I keep coming across some differences for words ending in the vowel group "éa." (as well as a few others)
Béal becomes "béil" in the nom. plural.
Néal becomes "néalta" in the nom. plural.
Scéal becomes "scéalta" in the nom. plural.
Most other words ending in "éa" follow the "-ta" pattern. Is béal one of those special words or is there something that escaped me?
