Do you mean "destiny is suburb" or "the suburb of destiny" and "destiny is peripheral" or "the peripheral of destiny" ? (Sorry, English isn't my mothertongue, maybe my questions don't make sense).

I would guess 'the suburb/periphery of destiny', in which case:

bruachbhaile na cinniúna (destinys suburb)
imeall na cinniúna (destinys periphery)
The British Isles are awesome - I know, I live there - but Ireland is not a part of them. K thnx bai!

It could be:
'agus fágaimid siúd mar atá sé'
"and let's leave that as it is"

Postby srr155 » 2008-01-15, 6:55

Rundaingne?? translations

Postby 1toast » 2008-03-18, 23:44

:?: I was told by my history teacher in class today that rundaingnemeans - strength of will. From my little Irish Gaelic, I thought that strength of will was neart tola If anyone could help me with this, I would be greatly appciative [we kinda have a bet :D ] Also, if someone could help me translate: strength of heart/strength of body/strength of mind
I would appreciate the help. I do not know where to begin with those. I think heart is croí
, but is it neart croí or neart de croí?? Or is there some other word... In short: HELP!!! Thanks.. :? [/i]

You're right, 'strength of will' is 'neart tola' but
'rúndaingne' also means something like this too.

strength of heart - neart croí
strength of body - neart coirp
strength of mind - neart intinne

yet another translation request...

Postby DRfacepunch » 2008-05-01, 5:40

...except with a twist. i already posted this in the translations seciton at the top of the forum, but after no responses, i thought why not post it here. so here's my hopeful request.

i would greatly like for this to be translated into old irish (onyl as a primitive irish translation would seem to be an impossible request), so that i may transliterate it into Ogham for a tatoo...

everything is a theory

or any variations like,
all (things) are a theory
everything is just a theory
all (things) are just a theory
everything is but a theory
all (things) are but a theory
ect.

thank you so much

I wonder whether it has maybe occured to you that an early medieval language/culture like Old Irish does not have the same concept of words like "theory" as we have today.

I suppose "dliged" would work (= law, principle, etc.), so you could probably say "dliged cach ní". Why you would want to have that as an Ogam tattoo is beyond me, though.

yes, it did occur to me that there may not be a word for theory, but it also occured to me that there may be a word for theory. i don't know the language, if i did, i wouldn't need a translation.

and tatoo's, for the most part, are just there for aesthetic apeal. and so would this one. i just feel that the ogham script would make for a good tatoo

Ogham was usually used to write names or placenames I think, rather than phrases.... why not go for a name in ogham?
I'm afraid I can't help with Old Irish though...

yah, i bet it'd be a hard translation. but i thought i'd ask anyways. the worst that could happen is people say they can't translate it.

i still like ogham regardless if it has slightly improper use. maybe i could modifie it slightly for a modern irish translation
