  • I don’t think the Irish language was made to please upper middle class Englishmen’ –freagraí go leor ar ráiteas John Cleese faoin nGaeilge

I don’t think the Irish language was made to please upper middle class Englishmen’ –freagraí go leor ar ráiteas John Cleese faoin nGaeilge

Bhain conspóid mhór ar líne le tvuít inar mhol an fear grinn John Cleese go gcuirfí córas foghraíochta an Bhéarla i bhfeidhm ar ainmneacha Gaeilge

Tá fearg lucht Twitter tarraingthe air féin ag an bhfear grinn agus aisteoir cáiliúil John Cleese mar gheall ar ráiteas a rinne sé faoin nGaeilge.

Tvuít inar mhol sé go gcuirfí córas foghraíochta an Bhéarla i bhfeidhm ar ainmneacha Gaeilge ba chúis leis an achrann.

I love your use of words !

But,seriously, if an Irish ‘bh’ is a ‘v’ sound, why don’t you write it with a ‘v’ ?

Of course, Bernard Shaw pointed out that in English, the word ‘Fish’ could be spelled G-H-O-T-I https://t.co/HcUkQRRd1V

Bhí na ceoltóirí agus fir ghrinn na Rubberbandits agus fear an Pop-Up Gaeltacht Osgur Ó Ciardha ina measc siúd a mheabhraigh an coilíneachas do Cleese.

Because the British tried to eradicate our language through colonization, so we prefer not to further anglicise it by our own volition 😫

An bhfuil “Monty Python and the Monolingual Cultural Imperialists” feicthe agaibh? https://t.co/hhf3zLF4eG

Mhínigh go leor daoine do Cleese, atá sa Táin i saol an ghrinn mar gheall ar a shaothar le Monty Python agus a ról i leithéidí Fawlty Towers, go raibh fabht mór amháin ar a mholadh – ní ann don litir ‘v’ in aibítir na Gaeilge.

No ‘V’ in the Irish alphabet, John. pic.twitter.com/2BV3zKvjd9

Oh no @JohnCleese 😭 don’t be that guy. ‘v’ doesn’t exist in the Irish language. I don’t think the Irish language was made to please upper middle class Englishmen. I’m not Irish, but I’m Welsh & can’t help feel the pain of every country that dares not to be English in the UK.

Why would you bother with 26 letters when all you need is 18? pic.twitter.com/VM9Gk3wt1J

Bhí an t-aisteoir cáiliúil as Game Of Thrones Liam Cunningham ar dhuine eile acu siúd a rinne beag is fiú de dhearcadh an fhir ghrinn.

Why isn’t phonetic spelt phonetically?

— liam cunningham (@liamcunningham1) 23 Meitheamh 2019

Ba léir nach raibh aon fhonn ar Cleese leithscéal a dhéanamh faoina ráiteas.

They look like deliberate attempts to mislead innocent people https://t.co/m89bM8Pp8z

— John Cleese (@JohnCleese) 23 Meitheamh 2019

True, and I do realise that the Gaelocentric viewpoint is dominant in the rest of the world https://t.co/6BmopnhJFP

— John Cleese (@JohnCleese) 23 Meitheamh 2019

Ghlac daoine eile cur chuige teangeolaíochta chucu féin agus áiteamh Cleese á ionramháil acu.

…for this purpose. Thus the letters ḃ ċ ḋ ḟ ġ ṁ ṗ ṡ ṫ are equivalent to bh ch dh fh gh mh ph sh th. In

Imagine not realising that other languages didn’t evolve in the germanic origin, Latin influenced, “English” way

— Kieran Burke 🇮🇪🇪🇺 (@kieranburke83) 23 Meitheamh 2019

Bhí corrdhuine sásta sochar an amhrais a thabhairt don fhear grinn, go pointe pé scéal é.

Ah feicin hell lads he’s just havin a bit of craic. At least I ope an fink e is.
