I believe for Banshee it's spelt 'bean si'. 'S' before a vowel is always said as 'sh'.
I looked it up. You're right that in Modern Irish it's Bean Sí. I was unknowingly using the Goidelic spelling. My questions still stands though. :P
Sidhe is just the older spelling. The reform was in the 1940s or 1950s, so you still see a fair bit of the old system around, written in the cló gaelach, e.g. on street signs and monuments in Ireland.
Goidelic is the name of a the language family (a subgroup of Celtic) that contains Irish (Gaeilge), Scots Gaelic (Gàidhlig), and Manx (Gaelg).
Wow, I forgot how crazy the plural system is in Irish. Its a whole other word. Is this always the case?
As soon as it's supposed to sound, increase the volume... But don't wait until later. OR increase it immediately after tapping the sound icon
Shouldn't bhean be acceptable as well? I swear there are like 6 different variations on "woman".
Can anyone explain to me why you sometimes have to write Bean for woman and in other sentences you have to ad an "h" like bhean. What is the difference? Cause the course doesn't tell me. (I'm not Irish, or English)
I have seen bhean as the spelling for bean... I get confused between them.
