In the audio files, "veigeatóir" has been pronounced as "ve-je-tor" and "ve-ga-tor." Which one is more correct or widespread?
I read that vegetarian in Irish means "meat shunner". Any truth to this? That sounds way more awesome than the standard definition of "a person who does not eat meat".
I believe you are looking for the more fun 'feoilséantóir'. It is more enjoyable to say this due to its descriptiveness.
Not in the native language; however, you will see the letters 'j' and 'v' in loanwords.
I feel frustrated that I'll never get the pronounciation right because the audio/text difference. I must be taking the text too literally when trying to pronounce it but how difficult can it get to see one thing and hear another?
the audio on that sentence is perfect (apart maybe from 'g' being pronounced /ʤ/ instead of /g/)
Is the term for vegetarian gender specific, or does it apply to both men and women?
