funny fact about uisce- this is where we get the english word "whiskey"
Perhaps because the water was only safe to drink if alcohol was added.
Or perhaps (actually) because the word for whiskey in Irish is uisce beatha, the water of life, a translation of aqua vita that you will also see in other drink names such as akvavit.
'We drink paul'
Why can't we use the longer ólann muid? I personally prefer it over the combined ólaimid, along with the other combined words.
I keep wanting to spell water as "uisge."
I knew it wasn't water, Duo!!!
What do you mean we drink paul?
I totally guessed this one
I think this is way to confusing but im gonna fight through
What is the difference between the ai sound, the a sound, and the á sound?
i found a gaelic pronunciation guide on youtube once, it's very informative, you might wanna look for it
Shouldnt that have a D' at the start? (That or school has failed me)
I know in French you don't have to put the accent on a capital letter, is it the same in Irish?
No, it is not. If a letter has an accent, the accent is required whether the letter is capitalized or not. You don't want to mix up Eire and *Éire.
