If you’re learning to speak Irish (such as with our Bitesize lessons), you’ll soon reach the need for a dictionary.
Today we’d like to highlight to English-Irish dictionary found at focloir.ie.
(By the way, if you’re looking for an overview of Irish dictionaries, see our Irish dictionaries post.)
Focloir.ie is an English-Irish dictionary
This dictionary is for when you know the word in English, but need to find the word in Irish (Gaeilic). For example, you might want to create post-it notes around your room with Irish label (like Audrey described on our discussion podcast).
Here’s what I like about focloir.ie:
- It has pronunciation audio files in the three dialects of the Irish language
- It features a wide range of terms of phrase
- It gives grammatical information, good for advanced learners
- It gives extra usage example, like the plural of the word
