Dá mBeadh Dalí ina Ghaeilgeoir – an tSeasmhacht Cuimhne, srl. Posted by on May 31, 2010

Well, not really.  Tá brón orm má ghéaraigh an teideal sin ar do ghoile.   I’m afraid I indulged in a bit of “meall agus malartaigh” in the title.  This blog is just an examination of words like “memory,”  “remembrance,” and “memorial,” “remember,” and perhaps the most basic of all, “I remember.”  So we’ll be looking at “cuimhne,” “cuimhneamh,”…

Lá Cuimhneacháin (i Meiriceá) Posted by on May 31, 2010

Ceiliúrtar Lá Cuimhneacháin i Meiriceá ar an Luan deireanach i mí na Bealtaine.  Cheiliúrtaí ar an 30ú lá de mhí na Bealtaine é ach i 1971 athraíodh é go mbeadh an tsaoire i gcónaí ar Luan sa dóigh go mbeadh deireadh seachtaine fada (trí lá) ann.  Memorial Day is celebrated in America on the last…

An Briathar “Cloisteáil” (the verb “to hear”) agus Clásail Choibhneasta – agus Deireadh na Sraithe! Posted by on May 27, 2010

(le Róislín) No longer on the home stretch, we’re done!  This is the last installment of the “irregular verbs in relative clauses.”  Thanks again to mo léitheoir dílis cineálta, Áine, who first requested some treatment of relative clauses (agus a scríobh an oiread sin de nótaí deasa ó thosaigh an blag seo).  Perhaps it’s hard…

An Briathar “Tabhairt” (the verb “to give) agus Clásail Choibhneasta Posted by on May 25, 2010

An starr dheireanach, faoi dheireadh!  Dhá bhriathar fágtha sa tsraith seo!  The home stretch, finally!  Two verbs left in this series!  Inniu – tabhairt (to give, giving).  This verb is quite irregular (maolaisnéis más amhlaidh go raibh maolaisnéis riamh ann!).  Before we plunge into relative clauses, please note that the root changes from “tug-” (used…
