    Default Speaking Gaelic

    Awens to All:

    One of the things that is expected of someone who is a Paganistic Druid is that they should be able to Speak the Ancient Gaelic of our Ancient Ancestors.

    Being of Manx Descent, I looked up any Websites that teach some Manx Gaelic and found this one:

    To say Hello: Dy bannee diu, Ta shiu/oo cheet!
    Please to Meet You: S'mie lhiam Áheet dty whail
    Goodbye: Slane lhiat, Bannaght lhiat/lhium, Hee'm oo/shiu


    I will have to write some more down and start trying to Memorize them.

    Gaelic pronunciation is very strange if you're used to English. Manx Gaelic is closer to Irish than to Welsh, and I know that in Irish lots of letter simply aren't pronounced.

    For example, Dublin is spelled "Baile atha Cliath" in Irish, but pronounced "Bal-ya a clia". So make sure you listen to the MP3s and sound clips on those sites (which look great, by the way).

    Dy Bannee Diu:

    Yesterday, I learned how to say 'Hello' and 'Kys Tou' meaning 'How Are You'.

    Today, I am Memorizing how to say Goodbye which is 'Slane Ihiat'.

    Manx spelling has a different derivation from Irish and Scots Gaelic, whose orthography is based on Old Irish. Manx spelling is heavily influenced by English spelling, and so Manx, on the page, looks much different from Irish and Scots Gaelic, although when pronounced the similarity to these two languages is much more pronounced.

    Good luck with learning Manx. I think it is good to learn a language to find out about a culture, and not just for utilitarian purposes. I think the best approach is to learn some of the grammar, so you know what the phrases you are learning actually mean, rather than memorising the phrases.

    'Moghrey Mie' is how you say 'Good Morning'

    'Fastyr Mie' is how you say 'Good Evening'.

    And 'Oi Vie' is how you say 'Good Night'.
