A chairde,


I have a small book on verbs by Ó Murchú, “Briathra na Gaeilge” and find it very convenient- all the forms of the verb are on one page etc... I’d like a similar book on nouns, listing their singular plural and genitive in one spot. If you all would suggest one, I could order it from Litríocht.

Go dtuga Dia fairsinge do croí!

Jim, a chara,

I've always found Foclóir Gaeilge-Béarla to be the best source although it's far from similar to Briathra na Gaeilge. But a more comprehensive listing I've yet to find ...

Le meas,

Larry.

it's not a book, but try
http://www.csis.ul.ie/focloir/
put in the word (including fadas) and it will give you tables for verbs, nouns, anything you want. It even gives you a definition, but it's as Gaeilge, so that could be less than helpful for a beginner but I use it to verify genitives and plurals

A Chairde,


Go raibh maith agaibh.

I find the brief tables on Antaine’s Foclóir Beag site very convenient.

Larry, a chara,


Thanks to you I know how to use my foclóir much more effectively. Would you believe I never understood how to find the genitive and plural of a noun in its heading? I thought they had to be found under a seperate heading. I keep on finding that because I’ve been trying to teach myself that I have accumulated glaring gaps in my understanding of Irish. These kind of things that seem ridiculous but are immediately exposed upon interaction with more learned people. Arís, Go raibh maith agat!


Le meas,
Jim

Jim, a chara,

Foclóir Gaeilge-Béarla is a very useful source of information and I'm pleased to read that you'll be appreciating its value more in the future.

I hope that you'll also continue to use this site as another resource. There are many people here who will guide you in any areas which cause confusion to students.

Le meas,

Larry.
