Bad pronunciation :(

Is it? I always learned 'geimhreadh' as 'geev-reh'. I've also heard other pronunciations like 'gerra' and 'gev-reh'. Maybe it's just a difference, like 'noh' and 'noo' for 'nó'.

Edit: It's the Munster pronunciation here: http://www.teanglann.ie/en/fuaim/geimhreadh

literally ... is this ... "is the winter jump" ? the winter has jumped? I'm just trying to get the feel of the language.

'An geimhreadh seo a chuaigh thart' or 'an geimhreadh seo caite' would be a few ways. No doubt there are others.
