"Stair na Gaeilge"
within that search, search for:
There you'll find some interesting information on Celtic lanugages and how sounds are changed. For example:
I like his dog. = Is maith liom a mhadra.
I like her dog. = Is maith liom a madra.
"madra" is pronounced "mojra"
"mhadra" is pronounced "vojra", the "m" sound becomes a "v" sound. Sound alteration is littered throughout the Irish language, in line with very specific grammar rules.
