The tips and notes are great, and I would welcome the inclusion of anything as counterintuitive as this in them.

It's just one of those things that Irish does differently than English. I've got a list of nouns that go with which preposition. I'll upload it eventually.

Which is one of the things that makes it so interesting to learn. Things like this need to be in the tips and notes if possible, though. Irish is a frustrating enough language, without being asked to know things one could not even guess.

I would love a list of which nouns go with which prepositions. I've been looking all over for something like that for quite a while. When you do post it, where can we find it? Thanks, it would be most helpful!

....So "out of me" means "in me". Got it. Irish isn't backwards at all... O_o

Is trust to the teachers out of me. Yeah, that seems like it should mean the opposite thing, e.g. the teachers have trust from me.

While the words look similar, there doesn't appear to be any connection between muinín and múinteoirí.

Whereas múinte as well as meaning "well-taught" also seems to be used for "well-mannered, polite". https://www.teanglann.ie/en/fgb/Múinte
