A chairde,

I always use the word "Legend" as a greeting, adjective when talking in English "Fionn yih legend what's the craic with ya?"

Bhfuil aon chomhairle agaibh faoi fhocal go bhféadfainn é a úsáid agus mé ag caint i nGaeilge.
Fionscéal an focal im fhoclóir - ach sin myth nach ea?

Aon smaointí seachas - pota, maicín, stór, réalt, ghrá??

Míle maith agaibh ar fad,
Domhnall.

"A legend in his own time" nó "a legend in his own mind"? Moladh nó leathmhagadh? Ach is cuma. Cúpla smaoineamh:

A Dhónaill na n-eachtraí
A Shéamais na n-éachtaí
A Phóil na mbuanna
A Sheáin na glóire

Ah, mo fhocal níos fearr - gáifeach. (adj.)
It exaggerates everything, turning it to the nth degree. From most disgusting to fantastic. From ridiculous to sublime.

Scríobh Maidhc -- "Ah, mo fhocal níos fearr - gáifeach. (adj.) It exaggerates everything, turning it to the nth degree. From most disgusting to fantastic. From ridiculous to sublime."


In Dinneen's dictionary, there are no words that start with the spelling "gaif-" but there's this:

"gáibhtheach dangerous, terrible; fierce, eager; exaggerating, costly; distressed, pitiful, plaintive;

gleo goineach gáibhtheach, a dangerous and perilous fight;

duine gáibhtheach, a person constantly complaining;

éadach gáibhtheach, costly clothes;

gáibhtheach gach baoth, every fool is dangerous

is duine gáibhtheach é, he exaggerates;

innsigheann sé scéal go gáibhtheach, he tells stories laying on the wonders heavily;

substantive masculine -- a querulous or needy person, a craver or beggar."

Lol..
Go raibh míle lads *agus ladies*

Aiséirí, an maith leat mo sliocht?
Dúirt Tomas Davis na sliochtanna seo a leanas ;

“Educate, that you might be free. We are most anxious to get the quiet, strong minded people who are scattered throughout the country to see the force of this great truth.”- Thomas Davis

"A people without a language of its own is only half a nation. A nation should guard its language more than its territories, 'tis a surer barrier and a more important frontier than mountain or river." - Thomas Davis

“As well might you leave the fairies to plough your land or the idle winds to sow it, as sit down and wait for freedom.” - Thomas Davis

Fuaireas iad ón suíomh seo - http://www.redbrick.dcu.ie/~sinnfein/Deafhocail.html

(That's merely a link, no political beliefs to be offended or praised Grma!)

I think mo sliocht says it all - The language is there for all. It's central to what Eire is and should be. It should be used to build bridges - instead of being hijacked by one side and ignored by the other..
agus araile!!
