p.j. Can You Translate This Irish Song? (24) RE: Can You Translate This Irish Song? 27 Feb 00

This is wonderful! I'm so happy to find someone who will patiently work this out with me. Many thanks, Aine.

If I can pester you with a last question or too, I think I'll be done...

1. Can you give me the phoenetic spelling to pronounce chro/na/nai/? (I'm guessing something like "hro-nan-eye") and contra/th ("cone-trow"?)

2. I've heard "tsaol" pronounced "heel", but if it is also spelled "shaol" how should it be pronounced?

3. Grammatically, are all of these combinations okay in a song?

Mo pha/iste
Mo pha/iste chroi
Mo chroi
Mo chroi thu
Mo thu
Mo gra

Once again, thank you for being such a great resource for these questions, I'll stop bothering you now!
