swear words in irish is there any?
like f off and such?
doest téigh trasna ort fein not mean go over yourself?
ones like tá tú piteog GAC agus tá tú bitseach GAC
You can't say "tá tú" + a noun.
You are a bit** = Is bitseach thú.
You are a piteog = Is piteog thú.
Bain taitneamh as cén rud? An porn go léir ag an nasc sin?
(GMTA) cad é sin Bain Taitneamh ?
ok so if i'm going to say something like
" is amadán thú"
"is cailín álainn thú " ceart?
did i say that right?
Is breá liomsa an ceann seo-
"Níl ionat ach sú tuifeoige dreolíne ar bhun chúl seanléine"
"You're nothing but the juice of a wren's fart at the bottom of an old shirt"
An cloch is íochtaraí san fharraige go raibh trasna faoi do cheann.
May a stone in the deepest ocean be around your neck.
That reads jumbled up to me. Should it not be Go raibh an chloch is íochtaraí san fharraige faoi do cheann
That's how I heard the seanchaí in Donegal say it (bar the omitted séimhiú; "faoi do cheann" without the "trasna" seems incomplete to me.
I missed the trasna. I any case "trasna faoi" is not something I've heard before at all.
It's certainly used in Donegal, as is the likes of
"tar amach as faoin tábla"...come out from under the table!
Sounds like Béarlachas to me. I'm unconvinced. Does anybody else have a opinion on this?
Check out 'Caisleáin Óir' by Séamas Ó Grianna and in chapter 11 he desrcibes the moon coming out from under a cloud....níor luaithe a ceann amuigh as faoi néal aici ná bhí sí ina rith isteach faoi cheann eile.
I've heard this, or rather I've heard of it being used - more as an example of "here's something that sounds funny but is still actually right" than as part of everyday conversation. Can't say for sure that it's kosher, but I'm told it is!
