i tried this in the general discussion... but no replies...
i proudly wear my barley juice t shirt. "barl eyj uice"
and am all ways asked what it says on the front "barl eyj uice" and have fun folding the letters to were they belong so people can figure it out on their own.... (kind of like a "Mad" magazine fold in)
HOWEVER!!! on the back it says "Urramaich a eorna" which i know means
"respect the barley" but how do you phonetically say "Urramaich a eorna"?
You should be careful about mixing Irish and Scottish Gaelic, the pronunciation is somewhat different. I don't speak Irish, so I can't say anything about that. The "ck" in "uhra-mock" is wrong at least for Scottish Gaelic, sorry about that. And you might be right and sláinte is pronounced slawn-cha in Irish, I wouldn't know anything about that. I was assuming you were talking about Scottish Gaelic.
And I don't know why you still don't see that I did give you a phonetic rendering as close as I can make it, plus a little bit of extra explanation, just like your Irish friend *confused* Maybe you missed the dashes for the syllables? So, here it is again with dashes:
