Would it be okay if we start on September 22nd ?
That's the day of the Fall Equinox exactly 3 weeks from to-day. I know that you're really busy at the moment and I think it'd probably be better to wait a while till things settle down a bit.

page 2 – the 2nd sentence of the Introduction: Peadar Ua Laoghaire says that he was told the story in the 1840's or 1850's …

page 5 – Cuid a haon – Notes: I réim: In authority, power [italics]
That hill is called "The Nest of the Eagle".

:idea: Just an idea: If you use the word Nótaí for each section, instead of the English word "notes", you are giving the learner a chance to actively use an Irish word throughout the story – And of course, actively using the words is how we learn languages.

page 3:
… If a given word has …

the top of page 8:
I'm thinking that it should be Tá sé am' bhualadh, right?

page 11:
When being used as adjectives like this, [comma] they do not …
Na Daoine Maithe The good people
1. … This has three forms in English …
3. … or connects to a preposition …

Most importantly of all (to reiterate):
Quote:
… some of the words in the notes are given in the old spelling and some are given in the "new" spelling.

For example:
Fuaduigheadh Past autonomous of Fuadaím I kidnap.

I think it would be better to consistently use one spelling, i.e., the modern spelling, throughout the notes, and then show the older spelling, in seana-chló since that is the way it is shown in the story, alongside the modern spelling in the future glossary [or next to the word in modern spelling] – just a thought …

nit-picking the notes for Cuid a Sé:

page 27:
Ina timcheall … This is a genitive preposition …

page 28:
How did she come to be barefooted? [question mark at the end of the sentence]
… One does, One sees, is the use of duine as the subject of the verb.

That's all. :)

still nit-picking – this time Cuid a Deich:

(lenition or eclipses) [not of ]
Over time eclipses of the adjective died out, outside of set phrases … [in The Official Wee Falorie Man Dialect]
Cuimhne Míos Month's Memory [not Mind]

And on the bottom of page 24:
De réir mar a bhí Muiris ag siúl ar aghaidh bhí an tollán … [there's a síneadh fada in the word tollán]

This is more of a general edit, and I'm not sure about this, but isn't the word supposed to be eclipsis throughout the notes? That's the way it's spelled in the original "Teach Yourself Irish" anyway. :dhera:

Sin a bhfuil …

still nit-pickin' – Cuid a haon déag:

The verbal adjective is indeed fálta, but it might be good to at least mention fachta and faighte

For most verbs, [comma] the ongoing …

1. Can be used simply as a noun. See for [not "fore"] example …

On the bottom of page 38 I think it's:
Do shocraigh a muintir ar an gcleamhnas.Their family settled on the match.

I think "Their families settled on the match" would be: Do shocraigh a muintireacha ar an gcleamhnas, right?

That's all for now …

Final nit-pickin' – Cuid a ceathair déag:

page 44:
Srathar, Sratharach, Srathair Pack-Saddle [not "Paddle-Sack" – heh, heh]

down at the bottom of page 44, the 2nd sentence of (1.) The latter case … [not later]


Sin a bhfuil agam leis an nit-picking, baochas leis na déithe. :)

Thanks for all these! As soon as I can upload again, you'll be seeing the (pretty) final
version of the text of the Sliabh na mBan notes!

Hey, that sounds brilliant! Please let me know when you post it. I'm really looking forward to seeing the final version. :D

Hi, sorry for reviving this old topic. This question has not been answered (and AFAIK adding lenition after am’ has been suggested a couple times without answer here before, also by Cian), so I’ll take the freedom to answer myself. ;-)

It should AFAIK stay as am’ bualadh, without lenition, because bualadh starts with a bilabial sound, and the bilabial /m/ at the end of am’ stops the lenition. Similarly am’ priocadh in Séadna, or am’ feiscint, am’ pógadh, but am’ thuiscint.

At least that’s how I understand it. ;-)
