Your entries are becoming more sophisticated, a Bhríd - image, sound file, little bit of cultural history. Iontach!

Grma a Shaoirse :)
Next, we'll expect a 3D interactive clip to help to explain each word.... :mrgreen:

Today's word is a particularly useful one for Ireland. 8-) It is new to me, but I think I could wear it out through usage...

aiteall = a fine spell between showers

Any chance someone could put it into a sentence please?

Bhí aiteall ann.

Rinne mé deifir ag an siopa nuair a bhí aiteall ann.

lorga = shin

Yes, I pronounce it with an extra syllable. I don't know if that is a Conamara thing or does everybody say it that way.
It sounds consistent with 'lorg' to me! To me, there are two syllables in 'lorg' as in 'Tá rud éigin á lorg agam' so three syllables for 'lorga' seems right.

I think it's pronounced that way in all dialects. Actually, it's very hard to say "rg" if you pronounce the r in the proper Irish way. You need the extra vowel. I think some learners can manage to say it without that vowel, but only because they are making an English r sound.

Im

Dé chúis ná fuil fada ar an i?

Do dh' fhéadfaí fada a chur ar an "i" i gCiarraidhe agus i gConamara mar fhoghraítear "im" mar ee-m
ach

i gCorcaigh foghraítear "im" mar i-m ("i" cosamhail leis an "i" ins an focal Béarla "in" (gan an "n")

agus sa Rinn foghraítear "im" cosamhail le "I'm" (I am) an Bhéarla.

Measaim ná raibh fada ar an "i" go traidisiúnta ach an oiread.
