I love the way ... anamchara ... rolls off the tongue :blume:

wee edit
I'm sorry, wasn't thinking just now ---


It translates to soul friend, but has various "meanings" to many people. I love the sound of the word.

They are alive and must be revered and softened, for they dwell wherever they land, wherever they travel. Even in stone and flesh.

Not only the word but also the meaning (and I'm not being political about it either, I just like the word & meaning)

LOL, funny story. My vice princapal is from Galway and when she was talking to students and needed a minute she would say "bumaite amhain gasuirí" which translates to "one moment students", but because of the accent, it sounds like she is sayine "bumaite amahin glasraí" which sounds like she is calling all the students vegtables!

Mic leinn is presently my favorite word. It is like college student. I am going to learn IRISH! YEay!
