Each instead of every?

That sounds weird to me in English, but report it as it does seem to carry the same meaning.

How would one say "They meet every Saturday"? Is the verb used still buaileann when there's no prepositional object?

I had a similar question. I believe that 'buail' needs 'le' in order to mean 'meet with.' So to say, 'They meet every Saturday' I think would require a form of 'le' in there somewhere, but not sure of the syntax. Anyone?

I would think this to be Buileann sibh le cheile gach Satharn, as in they meet with each other every Saturday, but that's just what seems right to me. Or maybe "le fein"? Not sure. Great question.

The pronunciation is misleading.

Is it the specific rendering in this sound example, or is a slender 'l' very close to an 'r' (which I heard originally in 'mbuileann')? Also I definitely hear a short vowel ('a'?) between the 'r' and 'n' of 'Satharn' - is this only due to the voice in the broad 'r'?
