I am doing a certain project, and for this project I need these various words in Irish. I have a couple, but these are what I don't have. For my project I need the plural form as well as the singular form, and if that isn't too much for someone, perhaps they could help me out. Oh, one more thing: if whoever helps me out could note the pronunciation for each word, that would be great. I need to know how to say them, as well!

wind
rain
water
fire
earth
rainbow
stars
bird
moon
horse
sun
dragon
cloak
sword
dagger

I sure hope that is not too much to ask. I would really appreciate the help!

Thought Id add onto this topic instead of starting another one.

Could anyone please help with a translation of: Even the darkest hearts bleed.
Its for the title of a story a friend is writing.
All help greatly appreciated :)

Too long for a title but there is a phrase in the language which touches on your subject:

Ní minice deoir i bhfios ná i ngan fhios i ngleann goirt seo na ndeor.

= The unknown tear is not less frequently shed than the known tear in this briny vale of tears.

You may like the start of it:

Ní minice deoir

(= A tear is not more frequent)


Maith an fear 'Antóin thuas.

Cuireann na croíthe is doirche fola, fiú amhain.

This is probably the literal translation.

Doirtfeadh fuil astu, fiú amháin na croíthe dubh go fearr.
This was really just a quick guess.

Thanks so much for your help! Now it would be nice if I could figure out how to pronounce the darn words... ;) The spelling is so hilarious!

How do you get those yellow smilie faces? I think they're cool.

A Fhraoch, A Chara:

This is my best shot at the pronunciation. If I'm off we'll both be set straight in due course.

Doirtfeadh fuil astu, fiú amháin na croíthe dubh go fearr

Deert-feh fil astoo, fyoo ahw-en nah cree duv go fahr

A Bhreandan:

Don't give up hope. I noticed you posted on two threads. I'll see what I can come up with but I'm still learning myself. Check back in a day or so.

Le meas,

James

A Shéamais,
LOL! I'm sorry you misunderstood me! I meant the pronunciation for the list of words that Antóin was so kind to give me. Thanks anyway for your effort!
