formation of words follows rules_ for example, "ath-" seems like the prefix "re-" in Latin-based words. "athleiriu" has stumped me for want of managing to translate the second part of such word. This keyboard has no Irish & I must forego the fada mark. Help, le do thoil

You're right about 'ath-', of course.

As for 'léiriú,' it has a number of meanings like clarification, representation, arrangement, etc. One meaning is a theatrical or film production. 'Athléiriú' often means a play revival. Does that fit the conText where you saw the word?

for those i Washington (deireadh Seachtaine) who had wondered where in Louisiana General Humbert is buried, I've read that he died at New Orleans in 1823 but am still trying to learn further detail. ...slan, wm. fuller
