Is this a greeting or goodbye?
sounds lovely isn't it ? I'm gonna have to say that instead of good night now.
is the mh pronounced like /w/ a dialectal thing? would it be pronounced /v/ by certain people?
Yes. In Munster you're more likely to hear it as /v/ no matter what. Otherwise, it just depends on broad/slender or where it is in a word, etc.
Yes, and (i think) in the north of Ireland it would be pronounced like 'why" instead of "wath"
(the whole word, not just the start :) )
Apparently it's more like ma - x' (x' = slender ch) (or wa - x' in this case), which sounds like my / why.
How is oíche pronounced on its on? and sorry to ask, but what cause the lenition in maith here?
My understanding is that oíche on its own is "ih-hah" or "ih-xah" and maith is lenited because "oiche" is feminine
I sometimes find myself typing in english when im asked to type what i hear in irish.
I choose to take this as a positive sign
It seems she copy forvo sounds she found. She is always jumping from one to another dialect.
It is actually good, we can see how rich is that language.
