Hello - My daughter's Kindergarten class learns how to say Good Morning every month in a new language and since we're mostly Irish (mom's maiden name is Murphy) I thought it would be nice for her to learn it and teach her peers. What is "Good Morning" in Gaelic and how is it phonetically pronounced?



Thanks!

There are a couple of ways (when there's a slash between words, you use the first if speaking to one person and the second when speaking to more than one person):

Maidin mhaith: MAJ-in why (this is going to be the easiest for little ones, I think)

Dia duit/daoibh ar maidin: JEE-uh ditch/DEE-uv air MAJ-in

Móra na maidine duit/daoibh: MOHR-uh nuh MAJ-in-eh ditch/DEE-uv

Pronunciation will vary somewhat, depending on which part of the country you're in.

Maidin Mhaith, but I will leave the pronunciation to other folks.

I 2nd that, it's used more often, and I agree it'l be easier for the kiddos.......
Just for sh*ts and grins, Ohayo Gosaimasu is good morning in Japanese if you want to use that on another week. I'm only saying that because it's the only other language I know how to say good morning in. :lol:

In Donegal Gaeltacht, I heard people saying "maidin mhaith".

I think we had that covered already.
