i seem to remember that there have been discussions here about Gaelic
orthography and how even though it looks Maggelish, it's actually quite

So anyway, i'm now taking a course in Irish Gaelic, and i'd really
appreciate it if someone could tell me all the rules for broad/slender
vowels and consonants, and aspiration and eclipsis, and all the other
stuff. My teacher isn't a native speaker, and she admits to mixing
dialects a lot, and my dictionary isn't nearly as much help with
pronounciation as i thought it would be.

So would anyone be able to help me?
