DoctorJug How to learn to pronounce Gaelic (28) RE: How to learn to pronounce Gaelic 31 Aug 06

Just one note of caution. It's too easy to get into arguments about Gaelic pronunciation. There is no one "right" way in many cases. The same even goes for spelling.
My home is Taigh a' Bata. That's a modern way to spell it. We say it "Toy a Bata", with an umlaut over the "o". You may see Tigh na Bhata, or say "Tie na Vata". The trick is not to be precious about it.
Hope you enjoy the learning!
