Easy one. I need the word "Out!" (as in "Let me out")

Amach ?


Thanks.

When I saw the title I thought this would be an order for someone to go out, which would be Amach leat!

If this is like a magic spell that helps you get out, then Amach liom! might work.

As an order for someone to let you go out, I don't really see the English as being able to mean that (some context might make it clearer?), but Lig amach mé! means "Let me out!"

It's more like something a baby would say. Like, if my toddler wants to go outside, he'll go to the door and say, "Out!"

I need the equivalent to that, but it has to be one word, one syllable if possible. Maybe "open" or "outside"?

Baby talk. One syllable. Perhaps 'Mach! might work then. The a in amach isn't very strong.

Yup, agreed. ’Mach!.

Perfect! You people rule. :)
But, if I wanted to teach this word to my toddler, I'd be saying amach. Right?
