Continuing with Easy but Useful Phrases

March 25, 2011
  • Madainn mhath  (MAH-tin vah)  Good morning.
  • Feasgar math  (FES-kair mah) Good afternoon or evening.
  • Oidhche mhath  (OY-ee-chuh vah)  Good night.

Note that the form of math changes.  This is because of lenition and the gender of nouns.  Madainn and oidhche are feminnine, causing the following adjective (math) to lenite.  Feasgar is masculine, therefore the following adjective does not lenite.
