Hello everyone! I was wondering if any good linguists could give me some insights into just how wide the gaps are between... say the Gaeilge spoken in Cork and that which is spoken in Derry.
Would a native speaker from Cork find himself in trouble listening to a Derry speaker or would it just be a bit strange?
If it helps to make the analogy, is it only like the difference between someone from Texas, US and something like Hull, England as far as english goes... or is it more like the difference between Quebec and Paris French?
I appreciate the time...
