By Ross M. Young. An Anthology of 
the most exquisite Folk L,yrics of Ireland 
—the Golden Treasury of the Gael. Cloth, 

These poems are of the people, by the 
people, for the people ; and they depict 
the life, the hopes, the fears, the joys, 
and the sorrows of the Gael, with a quaint, 
winning, natural simplicity. The book is 
exhaustively annotated, and there is a 
vocabulary of unusual words. 

Oi-oceAnnA Sroe (Faery Nights). 

An Art and Story Book for Irish Children, 
Written and illustrated by Michael Mac- 
L,iaim Mhoir. 

This is the first attempt of an Irish author 
and artist to produce a really artistic book 
for Irish children. The stories circle 
round St. Brigid's Eve, May Day Eve, 
St. John's Eve, and November Eve, and 
they are printed in both Irish and Eng- 
lish. The coloured black and wh ite illus- 
trations are simple and charming.

To the many who are now earnestly studying the Irish 
Language this little Pocket Pronouncing Dictionary is 
offered in the hope that it may assist them in their efforts 
to master the language. There are many who cannot 
often consult a teacher or native speaker and who must 
have felt the necessity for a pronouncing dictionary. To 
such, it is hoped, this book will be of service. The 
method of indicating the sounds is simple, and a short 
study of the Phonetic Key should enable anyone to inter 
pret the phonetic renderings accurately. But let, it be 
always remembered that the imitation of the sound is 
only approximate. The English Language does not 
contain all the sounds of Irish, therefore it is impossible 
to convey the sounds of Irish satisfactorily through the 
medium of English. 

With occasional help from an Irish speaker, it is 
confidently expected that the phonetic renderings here 
given will be a tolerably accurate guide to correct 
pronunciation. But consult a native speaker on every 
available opportunity. 

Our object is to supply, in the smallest compass, a 
dictionary that contains all the words in use in every-

viit. PREFACS 

day life, a book that will supply the needs of the student, 
the commercial man, or the traveller in the SaoIcacc. 
Words that have fallen into disuse in the spoken language 
have been excluded, while words recently added have 
been included. 

Method : To keep within the limit of the space 
allowed it was decided, as a general rule : — 

. 1st: to omit regularly formed derivatives, 
2nd : To omit words with regular prefixes. 

In such cases the prefix is given with its meaning, and 
all the student has to do is to look up the word and make 
the necessary modification indicated by the prefix. For 
example, -oe^-Twine see "oeAt, a prefix, good, excel- 
lent, then -otnne, a person, and you get •oca^ - f>uine, a 
good or excellent person. 

3rd : Compound words will be found under their 
component parts and are not, as a rule, repeated 
in their compound form. 

In this way a considerable amount of space has been 
saved, giving room for much matter which, otherwise, 
would have to be excluded. But though economy of 
space has been aimed at throughout, there is no over- 
compression, explanations are fully given and, where 
considered necessary, examples of usage. 

Spelling: The tendency at present is towards 
simplification of spelling and tbe disuse of silent, redun- 

Digitized by 


dant, dead, letters. This has been done to a certain 

extent, and it is hoped the simplified forms will commend 
themselves. As an instance, leAsu is written for leAsuJA-o, 
leAstnce for leAsm^re, peAnvilACc for peAKAtiilAcc, etc. 
Plurals are written : -ai, -f, for Aroe toe, etc. Occasion- 
ally alternative forms of spelling are given. 

Order : The sound is indicated immediately after each 
word. The pronunciation given is Munster, and where 
it differs from Connacht the Connacht pronunciation is 
either indicated in full after the Munster, or the sound 
of the syllable which differs from Munster is indicated. 

In West Munster a slender vowel preceding 11, nn, or 
m is pronounced like ee ; e.g., cill= keel, binn = beeng, 
im = eem, approximately. In East Munster these words 
are pronounced kll, blng, Im, approximately. As the 
West Munster sound runs right through our poetic litera- 
ture we have generally adopted it in preference to that of 
East Munster. 

We would, however, point out that inn is not 
pronounced exactly as eeng or een, but something 
between them. This sound can be got perfectly only 
from a native speaker. Even in West Munster the ee 
sound in this combination is not universal, as the word 
tinn is sounded not teen but tmn. 

The combination O + nn is pronounced in West Munster 
as oo, and in East Munster as ou. We find, however, 
that in West Munster some onn words are sounded oo and 
others ou, e.g., fionn = fij<m, donn = dhoun, bonn^bown, 

Digitized by 


so we have generally conformed to the East Munster 
usage, and adopted the ou sound which is universal in 
the one district and, at least, partially current in the 

The soft sound of c and -o in Connacht as compared 
with Munster should be borne in mind. As it is merely 
a softened sound of the Munster c and "o it was not 
considered necessary to indicate it in the phonetic words. 
Some of the best Connacht speakers have been consulted, 
and they say that the ch sound (as in cAop), and the 
sound like J in June, should be guarded against. 

Initial 5 or "6 broad, it is difficult to represent satis- 
factorily. There is no sound like it in English. Where it 
occurs we write " Gh " in the phonic rendering, the sound 
of which it will be necessary to get from an Irish speaker 

After nouns, the order is: gender, genitive case, 
nominative plural. 

After declinable adjectives, the comparative degree, 
which is generally identical with the genitive singular 
feminine, is given. 

The imperative, second singular, which is the root of 
the verb, is given as principal word. Under this 
the verbal noun is given and the first person singular, 
indicative. By this arrangement the essential parts are 
given in small compass. The verbal noun is not repeated 
as principal word except in very few cases. 

In indicating inflectional changes, where an addition 
is made to the principal word, the addition only is 

Digitized by 


given, thus : cfos, -a, showing that cios becomes cfosA. 
Where the principal word changes in part, the first 
unchanged letter is repeated together with the addition, 
thus : cion, -ine, that is, ciorc becomes cine. 

We desire to emphasise the absolute necessity of 
thoroughly mastering the Phonetic Key before using the 
dictionary ; but it should be remembered that it is 
practically impossible to render satisfactorily the sounds 
of any language by the conventional phonetic machinery 
of any other language. ' The result, at best, will be only 
a good working approximation.

Prefixes will be found fully explained in the body of the 
book. A list of the principal affixes is here given with their

The mark " over a vowel denotes that it is to be lightly 
pronounced or glided over, but when a glide vowel (i.e. a 
vowel having y over it) comes before or after the link ~ it i3 
scarcely heard at all and is put down merely to show that the 
consonant to which it is joined is to be pronounced broad or 
slender as the case may be, and there is no break in sound 
between parts of a word joined by this link -*. With the 
hyphen -, a break is permissible; with the link *> there must 
be no break. 

The guttural, broad c, in the body or end of a word is sounded 
like gh in lough, but at the beginning of a word it cannot be 
represented by English letter combinations. Slender c ie 
the body of a word is like h, but in the beginning it has no 
equivalent in English. 

c is therefore retained in the phonetic words in all positions- 

and it will be necessary to get its sound from a native speaker, 

11, represents broad I in the phonetic words, but it is not the 

11 of English. Ask an Irish speaker to say it for you. 
g, is like g in go, get ; never soft as in gin. 
s, is like s in ass, hiss, never like s in as. 
In sk, st, sn, followed by a slender vowel or by a in the phonic 
word, the s is like s in ship, sheaf. Followed by a broad 
vowel s in these combinations is like s in scum. 
The other consonants and consonant combinations are very 
fairly represented by their English sounds. 

The sound words may be pronounced in syllables at the first 
attempt, with the one exception noted under obscure vowels, 
They must afterwards be united.
