Like many folks, I don't spend as much time studying as I ought to. Nevertheless, there are several different ways of studying other than "hitting the books". Listening to native speakers and conversing/typing in Irish even without reference books handy can be a real learning experience if handled gently.

What I'd like to start here is an ongoing conversation of what you did today (or yesterday or whenever). It would be for beginners, in simple words and phrases, in both Irish and English so other folks could tell what you were trying to say and correct you if there is a better of way of saying something.

I'll go ahead and post something, and if anyone is interested in (a) correcting me, and/or (b) continuing the conversation, that would be great!

Bhí mé ag éistacht ar Radió na Gaeltachta ag mo iPod inné.

[I was listening to RnaG on my iPod yesterday.]

I'm really bad with prepositions and word order (not to mention vocabulary and spelling!) so correct at will.

Tá an t-ádh oraibh bheith éisteacht le RnaG ar bhur mbealach chun na hoibre. Níl agam ach an BBC radio 4 nó stáisiún Francach éigin.

Salut Lughaidh,

tá mé gar do Fontainebleau, sa sráidbhaile Saint Martin en Bière (chan ró fhada ó Barbizon), ach tá mé eolach go maith ar Avon tar éis dhá bhliana déag i mo chónaí i Samois-sur-Seine freisin.
Tá mo chuid Fraincís i bhfad níos laidre ná mo chuid Gaeilge anois mar sin

Cad é rinne mé inné?

Bhí sé ag cur sneachta amuigh aréir ach chuaigh mé teach chara. D'ith muid sushi agus d'ol muid tae. Chuaigh mé abhaile ar a naoi ar tráthnóna. Tá sé fuar agus fliuch amuigh go fóill. Sin é.

Feel free to correct. I´m sure something is wrong ;) Mar shampla, ní cuimhin liom bain úsáid "amach" ná "amuigh". I´m sure someone explained this before, ach ní cuimhin liom é :P

Tá níos mó cleachta de dhíth orm :)

Christine

amuigh [dobhriathar]
faoin aer (amuigh sa pháirc); gan a bheith istigh nó sa bhaile (tá fear an tí amuigh); ....

amach [dobhriathar]
ón áit istigh go dtí an áit amuigh ....

Bhain tú an usáid cheart as amuigh, a Christine. Bíonn (de ghnáth) gluaiseacht i gceist le amach.

chuaigh mé chuig teach cara



Saint Martin en Bière - Naomh Martin sa bheor, an ea? Nach mbeadh an fear bocht dallta?

Great idea!!!!

Chuaigh mé go scoile inniú. Bhí sé an-chac ;) Chuaigh mé chuig scannan arú inné féic 'Meet the Fockers'. Shíl mé go raibh sé an-mhaith agus greannmhar.

I welcome corrections as I realise that ALL of it is very likely to be wrong, mar níl mé ach ag foghlaim le dhá míos anuas anois.

Ben.

Tá tú níos fearr ná mar a cheapann tú, a Bheircheart. (nó a Bheir Cirt? N'fheadar cén tuiseal gairmeach atá ar do "hanla"?).

A Chroistín, a chara,

Cad é mar tá tú? Tá súil agam go bhfuil tú go maith. An bhfuair tú a lán sneachta i Massachusetts aréir? Bhí ionadh orm nuair a tháinig mé amach sa maidin mar ní bhfuair muid ach cúpla orlach ag mo theach cois farraige. D'fhan mé amuigh ag glanadh mo charr agus ag baint suilt as an maidin geal álainn.

Chonaic mé an grianghraf a rinne tú úsáid as mar 'icon' le mise agus tusa agus Ethel. An deas!! Cé a rinne an grianghraf sin dínn? An ndearna Donncha an ceann sin?

Chuir mé cuirt ar do shuiomh idirlinn - tá do chuid oibre an-suimiúil. Is grianghrafadóir an-mhaith thú. Is ealaíontóir éirimiúil thú. Agus is duine beag bídeach thú freisin!

Slán go fóill,
Rath

Indiu ní dhearnas mórán. D’fhanas ins an bhaile ó dhubh go dubh. Do chaitheas cuid maith n-ama ag obair ar mo thráchtas PhD. D’fhreagraigheas cupla ríomhphost. Do chuir mo mháthair sgairt ngutháin orm. D’fhill mo chailín dochum an bhaile ní’s luaithe ’ndhá a bhí ráidhte - cuireadh rang dá cuid ar ceal. Do chuartaigheas leabhar nó alt fo’n fhóineólaidheacht ’generative’ i measg mo leabhar féin. Ní thángas ar cheann ar bith. D’ullmhaigheas leathanach n-úr dom chín lae, fo choinne thús na míosa úire, le h-ainm na míosa sin i dtréan teangthach.
Anocht do bhreathnaigheamair ar an teilifís, do bhí sgannán maith ann. Agus iar sin d’fhreagraigheas cupla ríomhphost dá bhfuaireas anocht.



(Is greannmhar liom scríobh i nGaeilg Chlasaiceach mar sin :-) Bhfuil sé sothuigthe?)

Scríobhfaidh mé ríomhphost agus cuirfidh mé an pictiúir chugat!

Tá sé sothuighte agamsa. Ach bheadh imní orm go gcuirfeá mearbhall ar foghlaimeoirí. Tagaim leis an méid a dúirt an Bhric bháin.

Those were funny excercises you had us do at the weekend, Rath.

But you can't argue with the fact that I remember those adjectives now.

Go raibh maith agat arís as an rang. :)

Am I right in thinking that you said:
"____what is your handle on the vocative case?" I don't know what the first word is.

Well, limited ;) like my handle on everything else that concerns Irish!

Tá dhá bhrí ag aerach sa Ghaeilge, a Aingeal

1) taghta le deanaí isteach sa teanga, mar lomaistriúchán ar an mBéarla (gay - a tháinig ó "good as you") mar cuir síos ar claonadh gnéis

2) an tsean bhrí:
aerach [aidiacht den chéad díochlaonadh]
a bhfuil aer breá ann; éadrom sa chroí agus san aigne; giodamach

Nuair a fheicim an focail giodamach, smaoiním ar Liam Mac Giodaire. Ach is duine stuama é; ní duine flighty ná frisky é! Seachas an uair gur ith sé an feithid, b'fhéidir . . .
: )
Rinne mé obair bhaile, scríobh mé, léigh mé agus
d'fhéach mé ó m'fhuinneog le hionadh ar dhaoine fásta ag imirt croquet sa páirc.

Molaim thusa a Dhearg -- is smaointe maith é seo, mar tá sé deas áit a bheith ann chun rudaí éadroma a bhreacadh síos.

Cailín,

ba mhaith an smaoineamh do rang a sheoladh amch chuig club amhránaíochta an Bhéil Binn a bhíonn ar siúl i mBré. Sílim go bhfaca mé thú fhéin ann uair? Bheadh ann fáilte romhaimh (go hairithe má tá ceol ag aoinne acu!).

Is aoibhinn liom an club Bhéil Binn!! Bhí Rath ann liom bliain ó shin agus chuaigh Marie as an Bheilg ann liom roimh nollag -- bhí muid ag foghlaim Don Oíche Úd i mBeithil sa dart ar an mbealach ar ais! Agus chuaigh ceathrar liom go dtí club an chonradh oíche Chéadaoine tar éis an ranga. D'iarrtar orthu amhráin a chasadh i Bhengali agus Havaíís agus rinne. Chuaigh triúir go club Sult Déardaoin seo cháite chomh maith. Dúirt an duine as Bangladesh that total strangers are coming up to him in the streets anois saying, Hey Raj, conas atá tú? Tá siad go léir ag tnúth le tuilleadh Gaeilge a fhoghlaim anois go tapaidh mar gheall ar an seó sin. Téann siad go dtí an t-ionad Buail Isteach ar an Aoine uaireanta chomh maith. An dtéann tusa ann? Bíonn tae agus caife agus comhrá as Gaeilge acu idir 1-2ish sa siopa connolly books nua ar lána blúm -- trasna an droichead milaoise agus ar dheis.

Théann go dtí an Ionad nuair a bhíos ag obair i lár na Cathrach. Ach is i Mullach Íde atá mé anois.


Feictear mé ag Trí D ag an gCiorcal Díospóireachta gach ré Déardaoin. Ba bhrea liom dul chuig Sult uair éigin, ach tá conaí orm i mBaile an Chinnéidigh, agus bheadh sé ró dheacair dul abhaile (níl carr ná tiomáint agam)

An bunbhrí Béarla, cinnte. Ach an brí "homoghnéasach" is ó "good as you" a thagann sé, go bhfios dom.
