I'm just wondering about the tone of voice for asking questions. It seems as though her voice didn't have that questioning tone. Does Irish differ from English as far as the tone doesn't indicate question-sentences? I hope you know what I mean. I sometimes have difficulties expressing myself with the written word. I'm actually hoping that, as a by-product, that learning Irish can help with my English grammar.
Don't confuse stress with pitch, though. Upspeak usually refers to a habit of speaking, common in younger Anglophones, where the pitch is raised at the end of the sentence, as if asking for confirmation, you know? At its worst, upspeak can affect every sentence a person says, right?
As I understand it it, Irish doesn't use a raised pitch at the end of questions to indicate it's a question. The particles 'An' or "Ar" etc perform that function. But that's just what I've read.
I've tried to note how the speaker here does it. But it's better to observe longer utterances in context, e. g. on TV.
