GUEST,Paranoid Android Pronunciation of Irish language (117* d) RE: Pronunciation of Irish language 16 Jun 04

I learned Irish in a Christian Brothers School. Fucking Great.
If a word begins with Bh or Mh then you covert that to "W". If it begins with Th the T is lost and it begins with a "H".
example "Ca bhuil tu ag dul? "= "Where are you going? "Phonetically sounds like "Caw will two egg dull? example 2 "An mhait leat bheith ar scoil?"="Do you like being at school?" Phonetically sounds like,
"On wah lat veh er scull?
I agree with the earlier suggestion from Dathai that you submit the titles of the songs you wish to perform and I (or some other late night Mudcatter) will "Transpose them to phonetic sounds for you.
