Thread Name: Sean (sp): where does the accent go?
Subject: RE: Sean (sp): where does the accent go?
ok!

sean - old, aged, mature, long established, (of calender old style)

séan - mark with sign, bless
       declare untrue, to deny

seán - used in phrases Seán na gealai (jack-o-lantern) Seán Buí (John Bull) as Jack or John

does that help?
