Lots of people struggle with how the Irish language is pronounced.
Let’s take a short example, and break it down! Once you get familiar with the rules, other new words won’t look so strange.
You see, when you break things down into Bitesize portions, they’re not so daunting.
You first might have no idea how “arán” should be pronounced, especially with that “á” thrown in there. Now you know it’s pronounced like “aw”. It’s a “long vowel”. (Bitesize members should see Bitesize Lesson: Pronouncing long vowels).
