Hi, I wasn't sure if this was the place to post this question but here goes anyway. What does "Erin Go Bragh" mean? Saw it on some signatures here, just curious.

Hey there! I don't have any Irish, as I'm learning Scottish Gaelic, but I do know that Erin Go Bragh means Ireland Forever in Irish Gaelic!

'Erin go Bragh' is a corruption of the Irish
ire go brch, meaning, as WizardOfOwls said, Ireland forever

The Irish word for "the" is "an". Irish nouns can be either masculine or feminine, and "an" before a feminine noun aspirates most of the initial consonants that can be aspirated. Exceptions are "d", "t", and sometimes "s". "An" does not aspirate the initial consonant of a masculine noun. Learn this vocabulary:

Hi I have been trying to study some off of the Sumerlands site but this stumped me today. I don't really get what that means up there thumbs_up.gif . Can someone please explain this, would really appreciate it.

[FONT=Geneva][SIZE=1]I'de like to add to Jones' post to the learning Irish language learning resources. I ordered a Teach Me Language Learning software. I thought it was expensive but I thought what the hey. It got here less than two weeks. Its fun and easy to learn and the software has a speaker to pronounce the words and phrases and sentences, it has pronunciation excercises too along with grammar. Here is the site to go to. http://www.linguashop.com/. Look for and click below on Teach Me Irish. It should take you to another page about the product and at the bottom should be an order link. When you install it, make sure you restart your computer.

[FONT=Courier][SIZE=1]I got this from someone who lives in Dublin, Ireland, who wrote in Dreamstime Blog:

In the Irish language, the correct translation of 'forever' is 'go brach'. However, Irish is still a minority language (even in Ireland) and when transcribed into English, words ending in 'ch' often get changed to 'gh'. For example 'loch' (Irish for 'lake') becomes 'lough' (as in Lough Neagh, Lough Leane, Lough Foyle, etc). That probably explains the dictionary entries you mentioned, but I suppose it all comes down to how pedantic you want to be!
