Hello, does anyone know how to pronounce this phrase?

Illin sha, Ma herrin fain


It's in a song I'm learning, and I need to know how to pronounce it, and I'd also like to know what it means....

Thank you for all your help!

Heather

A chara,

The phrase already seems to be spelled phonetically; or something close to it. What is the name of the song? I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but I could be way off.

The song was called The Rock, and it was off a TV show... Disney's So Weird, to be exact. It was sung by Mackenzie Phillips... I only have one MP3 of it, and of course, because it was recorded from the TV, there are bits and pieces of other parts of the show on the clip.

If you want, I could send you the MP3 clip? or can you post stuff like that on the board?

Oh, the chorus where it appears goes:

The Rock forged my spirit,
The Rock was my anchor,
The Rock held me fast through the storms of my youth.
Now you'll never die
'Cause you'll live on inside me,
Illin sha, Ma herrin fain,
Lie lie lie lieeee....

Does that help?

Heather,

Sorry for the tardy reply, but I was out of town and wasn't online. Please send me the clip. Maybe I can help. My e-mail address is smitrob@soc.mil.

slán,

Hey, can someone PLEASE tell me how to pronounce "Slánatheoir", which means "saviour" or "redeemer"? Also if there is another, more exact word for "redeemer" I'd like to know it and its pronunciation. I need to know by August 17!!! Please help!
