Hello everyone. I am in need of some help with the correct pronunciation of the following words:

ailleacht (sometimes seen as ailleachd)
Gradh
Annsachd

I have gone to sites that help with pronunciation, but it isn't helping all that much (especially with the first and third words). As far as I can tell, 'Gradh' is pronounced 'Gra-v' .... but I could be way off, and have no idea if so. Each word will be preceded by 'Mo' (which I believe is the gaelic word for 'My' and is pronounced like the first two letters in 'Mass').

So, if one of you do speak Gaelic, could you please provide a phonetic translation?

Much thanks,

Vincent

Vincent,

You need to speak to Wizard of Owls! He's helping everyone learn different forms of Gaelic in the Culture Forums. Please go to Celticradio.net, Culture and Heritage, Celtic Languages. I'm sure you'll find help there!

Good luck cheers.gif
