PostSubject: Tachráin ar fud a' Ghriosaigh   Fri Mar 14, 2008 12:27 pm

What about retitling forum 3 as "Tachráin ar fud a' Ghriosaigh" . It means the child among the ashes. i.e. the learners. It often refered to the prefered child as in the one closest to the fire gets the most heat. Phrase from Séamus Ó Grianna lampooned by Flann O'Brien

'The Sandbox' in other words ...

Just listening to Des Bishop on Ryan Tubridy talking about Irish - if that man is not in a sandbox of his own then I'm not either Laughing We should try to get him here !! He opened talking about the Modh Coinniollach and how it is the conditional tense with 'if' and 'would' and 'maybe'. In a couple of one-liners he explained the tense and described the Irish as a bunch of petrified worriers about the future at the same time !

He translated the song 'Jump Around' into Irish too - he's having fun. He sounds like a genuine philosopher of language (he's saying that communicating in another language is like using a different frequency - food for thought there).

I propose a bilingual forum in Tús Maith anyway. Tús maith, leath na hoibre.

Smaoineamh maith - Tús Maith

Riadach was spot on with this title. Maith an fear. Keep it simple. That didnt occur to me. Embarassed= náireach. Had returned from the teach tábhairne so observational powers not fully functional.Bhí aer ag fáil isteach áit éigin.
