I am quite sure you would have to say something like "Tá ocras ar an duine atá i mo dhiaidh" as hunger is something that is on you in the Gaelic languages. But wait for Quevenois correction, his knowledge of the language is amazing and he'll be able to rephrase it in a much more beautiful way.

I think it would be better to maybe say;

Ní fhuil airgead ag an duine atá i mo dhiaidh

Tá se cearr a "IsMaithLiomÉire". Tá airgead agam, ach ní fhuil ach 800 euro agam anois.

Níl ach deich bpunt, aon fidil dona amháin agus dá cat dubh gan earabaille ag an duine atá i mo dhiaidh :)

On my Irish thread Quevenois gave the exact same correction, but I agree that his knowledge is amazing. :D

Is there a reason "ní" and "fhuil" aren't contracted?
I was going to do it that way, but I figured it made too much sense to be correct in Irish. :lol: :P


I understood everything but "earabaille". I couldn't find it anywhere, and it gives 0 results on Google. :?

Níl.

An duine atá i mo dhiaidh, tá sé ag iarraidh a faire an clár "Weeds".

Earabaille is "tails" :) And the only reason why I write and say Ní fhuil is because it's chan eil in Scottish Gaelic and níl to me seems a bit too short :P

Well forgive me for thinking that a spelling based on the Gàidhlig spelling makes much more sense :P

Ní chónaic mé "Weeds" le mo sholas, fóirim "Kyle XY", "That 70's Show" agus "Reaper" ina áite. Máidir le "Weeds" - níl aithne dom má clár maith atá ann ... An mol tú "Weeds"?

Tá deoch ó an duine atá i mo dhiaidh.


Not saw I Weeds with my light, watch I "Kyle XY", "That 70's Show" and "Reaper" in its place. In regard of "Weeds" Not is awareness to me if programme good it is in. Praise you "Weeds"?

Is drinking wish on the person it is in my after.

Or, in plain English

I have never seen Weeds (in my life), I watch "Kyle XY", "That 70's Show" and "Reaper" instead.(actually, féicim would be better for "see/watch") And regarding "Weeds", well I haven't got a clue whether or not it is a good programme . Would you recommend "Weeds"?

Sweet, I was eventually able to understand most of that, but just a couple questions. :)
I assume "le mo sholas" means "on my TV", correct? The only word I was unable to find was "fóirim"; what does this mean? Well, from context I understand its purpose/meaning, but I can't think of an English word for it... :hmm:

Molaim sé duit. Tá cuid mhor grá agam dó. :D :?:


Ní thuigeann mé. :?

Tá codladh ar an duine atá i mo dhiaidh.

Oh ok. :lol: Thanks. :y:

So, I take it that everything I said in Irish is correct? That isn't what I guessed "fóirim" to mean, but at least I still understood it. :P

Also, why/how did you use "ó" for "wish"? I totally don't get it. :oops:

Well, you can use ó to express a need or a wish, and ó is usually contracted. E.g. "Tá airgead uaim - I need money", "Tá biadh uait" He wishes he had some food/ he needs food". Why I cannae really tell, this is once again something you will have to ask Quevenois or someone else about, as it probably has to do with some ancient idiomatic use I'm not aware of - lit. "tá deoch uaim/ tha deoch bhuam" translates as "there's a drink from me" ...

I think it would be better to say something like

"Tá an duine atá i mo dhiaidh ina chodladh"

And the answer is

Níl, Níl mise im' chodladh, d'éirigh mé moch maidin.

Ní raibh an duine atá i mo dhiaidh i mBaile Átha Cliáth an tsamhradh seo.

There are two ways to say ''wish/need''.

Tá ___ de dhíth orm = I need ___
Tá ___ uaim = I need ___

If you want to use the ''de dhíth'' then you will have to use the following:

orm = I
air = you
uirthi = she
air = he
orthu = them
oraibh = you (plural)
orthu = they

If you want to use the ''uaim/uait'' you will use:

uaim = I
uait = you
uaidh = he
uaithi = she
uainn = we
uaibh = you (plural)
uathu = they

Examples:

- Tá carr de dhíth uirthi = she needs a car
- Tá ríomhaire uainn = we need a computer

Níl aon suim agam ar conlang sílim go mbeadh ag meilt ama siocair go bhfuil mé ag iarraidh fíor-theangacha a fhoghlaim.

Vocabulary:
bheadh = I would
ag meilt ama = wasting time
siocair (one of the Donegal ways to say ''because'')
fíor = real
ag iarraidh = wanting

Is maith leis an duine i mo dhiaidh bheith ag léamh nuachtáin.

Quevenois is right that it would be prononced like that in Cois Fharraige, but it wouldn't be written like that, the way he has written them it would be prononced.

One question, is there a reason "bheith" is there, or is it just there?


bheith = to be

Is maith liom bheith ag snámh = I like to swim/I like to be swimming
