I think it would be better not to try to give pronunciation notes with "English" spellings, because there are already some sounds in there that don't exist in the English language like that, vowels included. It would be better for people to paste the words into the Cereproc site or listen to them at a dictionary site.Polygot2017 wrote:Ok, I looked at those verb tables for the regular verbs and they do look very comprehensive, but I just can't make sense of any of it at all.

Tenses are in rows, not in columns. They are using Gaelic terminology and their English translations, rather than trying to map to English... it's a list of tenses and their forms, and not an explanation on when to use which.Polygot2017 wrote:Are all Gaelic tenses covered there?
Ok, I'll look into those verb tables as soon as I get a chance. Also, I'd never heard of the Cereproc site, so I googled it. I presume you mean www.cereproc.com ? So you can just paste words in different languages into there and it will pronounce them 100% accurately, even for Gaelic?
Another thing I'm looking into is learning the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet), as it would be useful for Gaelic as well as other languages - indeed several Gaelic learning books have the pronunciations in IPA.
