The Voice Pronouncing "Dinnéar"
Hi, not that active in the forums but as an Irish speaker (working towards fluent) I know dinnéar is not pronunced dine-ehr but din-ehr. The ending of din would sound the same as the ending of bin.
Might just be in Munster dialect though.
I got the impression that different recordings follow different dialects. At least some of 'agat' are pronounced 'agat' and some 'agut', some 'maidin' are pronounced with slender D but some with broad... Actually, this might be useful since we're exposed to different ways of pronounciation and will be prepared to hear different dialects.
But I might be mistaken since I'm just a beginner.
That's not what it is. The problem is that the speaker is non-native and doesn't have a competent grasp of Irish phonology. There have been plenty of threads about this, and the moderators said they were looking into getting a replacement. But, alas, they've been silent for over a month.
