Hello,

hopefully this is the right place to ask - apologies in advance if it's not, I'm new here.

A fictional character I like used a spell that an auto-translator identified as Irish:

A spioradÌ an tsaoil, ÈistigÌ liom! DÛighigÌ an fear seo! DÛighigÌ go luaithreach È!
(badly auto-translated into:
Spirit of the world, listen to me! Get this one! Get it to the ashes!)

I've read that the only diacritic mark used in Irish is this one: á, so I'm slightly confused about the spell using different ones. Is it actually Irish at all? (If not, then I'm definitely in the wrong place, sorry!) Is it maybe an Old Irish variant of the spelling? I feel like my knowledge isn't even deep enough to ask the right questions.

I want to write a variant of this spell that has the same first sentence, but then continues (and ends) like this:
"Spirit of the world, listen to me! Unveil the path to the eternal fire! Lead me to the damned!"

Using an auto-translator to write this new version of the spell would most likely just result in nonsensical gibberish and wouldn't do the language justice, so I'd be extremely thankful if there's a kind person willing to help me with this.
Thank you!

I can confirm that is jibberish, or as we say in Ireland it's shite.

You are right, we only have one accent in Irish, áéúíó and on the capitals letters too.
And in Scots Gaelic the accent is in the opposite direction.

DÛighigÌ - I don't know what is intended there. From the following words I'm guessing it's "dúisígí"- You (plural) wake [him] up, and instead of "luaithreach" (ash) "luath" (soon) was intended. OR it could be - "Dust that man, dust him to ash". Sounds weird even in English :LOL: .

Ok you wanted:
"Spirit of the world, listen to me! Unveil the path to the eternal fire! Lead me to the damned!"

Spiorad an Domhan - Spirit of the World

Éist liom - listen to me

Nocht dom an cosán go dtí an tine shioraí - unveil path to eternal fire

Treoirigh mé go dtí na daoine damanta. - Lead me to the damned



Wait for spelling corrections, or a better way to say it.

Thank you so much! You're amazing for helping strangers with such things! I'm so happy I have a decent non-shite spell now! haha
