I just kind of assumed that any textbook would contain some exercises...

Thats kind of the point in trying to start these up: motivating each other. :P (Whatever your reasons are for learning it. :lol: )

Oh, yes, I get that. I'm just not sure if I really want to get motivated. :lol:

Of course! I'm just trying to point out the Google docs for Hokkien will have more than just the exercises in them.

That's not to say that we couldn't start up a Google doc for Irish to do exercises in (whether from the textbook, or of our own design). :wink:

Time to pep you up, then! :partyhat: :woohoo: :bounce: :burning:

Well kevin, unless you have better luck convincing dEhiN than I did, it looks like if this were to happen it'd be just the two of us (for now at least).

For which?
Just the two of us doing a study group, or you trying to convince dEhiN to join in? :P

(I hope I understood your question right.)

Just generally, what do you suggest we do. A study group of one and a half people, just give it up, or any idea for someone who would more realistically join in than dEhiN?

Well, I can't readily think of a third person who would possibly join. It's a rare day someone actually expresses interest in Irish.

Idk. I mean if your willing to try a two person group, I am. Maybe someone else will eventually join in too. I'd hate to kill the idea so quick. But if you don't want to, I understand.

Well, now the question I find myself faced with is, concidered we're going through Connacht Irish resources for the study group, do I want to try and continue with Munster along with Connacht, or is it better to stick with one dialect and then come back to Munster later?

That's a question that nobody else can answer for you. I think my own approach will be to read Connacht Irish, but write CO/Ulster. I think can manage grammar and pronunciation differences, but vocabulary may require to look up every unknown word so I learn at least a standard form and not only the Connacht one. We'll see.

If you like, I'd be happy to discuss occasionally in the study group how things would be said in the other two dialects.

Well, I think I've made it this far in TYI, I'd hate to loose that progress. Might as well try to bring it to the end.

And I'd be happy to discuss how things work in Munster too. See? Vijay's comparative thing is happening!

So, I'm not sure how much flying I'll do with the study group. :P

I don't think you have to lose any progress. You can still use TYI for comparison and learn both Munster and Connacht forms, maybe even Connacht only passively. It's just a bit more effort than simply using what the study group book uses.
