Bhí mé ag staidear an leabhar Míchéal O Síadhaíl agus aimsigh mé an focal "frata." Thug sé an bearla "potato" ar focal seo agus ní aimsigh mé é i mo fhocloír. Cheap mé go bhfuil an gaeilge ar "potato" bhí prata.

While your at it--correct my grammar, too!


Go raibh maith agaibh,

James

It's purely a dialectic difference James. Práta is Standard Irish for potato and it is called práta in the south. In the west they call it fáta.

Thought so. Apparently, my grammar wasn't too atrocious.

Go raibh maith agat!

Le meas,

James

I've also used the O Siadhail book. It has a few examples of Irish that differed from the Official Standard Irish we did at school. So, gach lá is 'chuile lá. Then I did a course last summer in Donegal where they say achan lá. As often happens with dialects the words that vary most are the most commonly used ones. They're usually fairly recognisable though,I find, at least when written down.

O' Siadhail elaborates more on the dialect, Cois Fhairrge (Co. Galway)in this this case, and Official standard Irish issue in Appendix III, page 235.

I have the new addition of Ó Siadhail (c. 1995 reprint 2000). Appendix III is found on page 221 of my copy.
