Hello everyone!

On the Slinte issue, my Irish dictionary gives this definition:

Slinte - f4 health, (drink) toast

meaning that it is the 4th type of declention for the noun sln (health), and that it is also used as a toast.

I see no problem with Rindy using this word as her signature. There is nothing offesive or bad about it. With all of the bad things that we Mods have to watch out for, I am not going to concern myself over someone using a sig that is usually used as a toast! There is nothing sexual, sexist, racist or anything else about it, so Rindy - use it with pride if you like. That's your choice.

Maddy, I'm truly sorry if you find the term offensive, but, regardless of whether or not the word is being properly used in this context, Rindy -and all of the rest of us for that matter - has the right to use whatever she wants as her sig as long as its not vulgar or rude. I hope you can understand that.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Allen

Well, you beat me because I come on again to delete my post. I am aware that many people are not interested in that matter anyawy.

First of: I didn't mention Rindy with one single word
secondly: What makes you think I am offended?

My big mistake is that I think people are like me, curious and eager to learn. If I use slainte in the wrong context and somebody would explain it to me, I would appreciate the learning opportunity. Probably felt a little stupid as I failed to research properly, but would appreciate the learning nonetheless.

I am sorry if somebody feels offended by my offer to help. I will humbly retreat.

That is very interesting your explanation of the proper usage of slainte. I have a welcome plaque with slainte (and a wee leprachaun) on it that hangs at my front door. I appreciate your precise meaning of it but I think it may be like lots of words that it has evolved to mean something more and the real purpose of all language is communication. I know you might say "Cheers" to someone in parting as a kind of toast or send-off just like folks say "slainte". Anyway, I hope that all who read it or see it at my door know that I am in essence sending out wishes to them for their good health and happiness.

p.s. I see there is another Annabelle here (guess I should have registered as Rebecca)

Rebecca, don't get me wrong on this, I appreciate your comments and views.

Most Gaels are very polite but a very closed community. Scottish Gaels are extremely sensitive about their traditions, culture, and language. In 1500 years of written history Slainte was never being used for a welcome or good bye and most likely never in the 2000 years before. Obviously it was created by the post-emigration generations in the US, confusing the Irish (but it's used in Scottish Gaelic too) slan leat or slan leibh with slainte. Probably te grandmother remembered something being said as a good bye and as it sounds similar to what's that as a toast the myth of Slainte was being created.

it's interesting for me to see that a slainte community has developed, taking myths and hearsay migrating bits of heritage and happily marrying them with movies and tv shows into an American Celtic culture without any basic research.

hey I just created a new term! biggrin.gif

So anyway! Stay happy and safe and enjoy your wee leprechaun who wishes you health! Though little leprechaun would be better to be caught in an attempt to get his WEALTH (and not Health) and is thus another perfect example.


Nollaig chridheil dhuibh.

sln leibh

no, you have me all confused, you are posting are you not???


oh, no offense, but is there a way to stop people saying Slainte at the end of a message?

It's NOT Scottish Gaelic, it's not even Irish or any other Celtic language to say it as a good bye term. Slainte is just used as a toast, and only used on that occasion. Yes, it's translates to cheers but as cheers as in prost, a votre santee, nasdadownje, ... when raising a glass. It's NOT as Cheers as in Good Bye!

Slinte means to good health, it's the past participle of sln. Sln le, is an informal term for good bye (health with you), or you can say beannachd, blessings, or mar sin leat, or just tioraidh which happens to be the Gaelicized version of Cheers (pronounced as such), okay???

I have emigrated and I can assure it's not that easy or the grass is not always greener, you may find brown patches here and there.

I don' t regret having moved at all but you need to be aware of what you might getting into and be prepared for all kinds of mischief.

The stories I could tell about immigration to the US would fill books, at least one book. laugh.gif

Much depends on whether it's you moving all alone and having a family already there (friends may not do!) or moving with a family. Many couples without children manage to spend a long term vacation in the new country rather than truly integrating themselves. If your move is work related, think about your spouse who will have to carry the brunt of it.

Just a couple of thoughts.

funny but now the big question: How in the world did word get out?

I know of some couples who found each other on boards, not dating crap, on regular boards like this one.
I also know of some very unhappy occurrences. rolleyes.gif
