Cúpla Focal 

This Unit will invite you to describe yourself. 

You ought to very briefly describe your appearance and a handful of your characteristics 

You will be asked two allied questions:

Cén sórt duine thú?

What sort of person are you?

Cén sórt duine thú?

Cén sórt duine thú?

and 

Cad é a deir daoine fút?

What do people say about you?

Cad é a deir daoine fút?

Cad é a deir daoine fút?

 

We might reply to the question, Cén sórt duine thú? by saying (using the “threes” formula) 

Tá mé óg, tanaí agus lúfar 

I am young, thin and athletic

Tá mé óg, tanaí agus lúfar 

Tá mé óg, tanaí agus lúfar 

or 

Tá mé ard, dorcha agus dóighiúil 

I am tall, dark and handsome 

Tá mé ard, dorcha agus dóighiúil 

Tá mé ard, dorcha agus dóighiúil 

or

Tá mé meánaosta, maol agus murtallach 

I am middle-aged, bald and obese 

Tá mé meánaosta, maol agus murtallach 

Tá mé meánaosta, maol agus murtallach 

 

If you are attending a class with a teacher, you will get advice about other adjectives that best describe you as an individual.

 

The second question is a bit more complex in terms of grammatical structure

 

Cad é a deir daoine fút?

What do people say about you? fút about you

Cad é a deir daoine fút?

Cad é a deir daoine fút?

 

So let’s introduce some new adjectives, sticking to the “threes” approach:

 

Deir daoine go bhfuil mé múinte measúil lách 

People say I am mannered, respectful, kind

(we don’t need to use the word “agus”)

Deir daoine go bhfuil mé múinte measúil lách 

Deir daoine go bhfuil mé múinte measúil lách 

or 

Deir daoine go bhfuil mé cuidiúil cairdiúil cineálta

People say I am helpful, friendly, kind

Deir daoine go bhfuil mé cuidiúil, cairdiúil cineálta

The alliteration helps retention

Deir daoine go bhfuil mé cuidiúil, cairdiúil cineálta

And less favourably,

Deir daoine go bhfuil mé míshocair mífhoighneach míréasúnta!

People say that I am restless, impatient, unreasonable!

Deir daoine go bhfuil mé míshocair mífhoighneach míréasúnta!

Quite a mouthful there

Deir daoine go bhfuil mé míshocair mífhoighneach míréasúnta!

 

You should note that the prefix mí – helps form the opposite of a root word

Socair – meaning stable, steady becomes

míshocair – restless in this case

 

foighneach – meaning patient becomes

mífhoighneach – impatient 

 

Réasúnta – meaning reasonable becomes

míréasúnta – unreasonable 

 

socair - míshocair 

foighneach – mífhoighneach 

réasúnta – míréasúnta 

 

Tá súil agam go mbeidh sibh foighneach go dtí an chéad Aonad eile 

I hope that you are patient until the next Unit

Tá súil agam go mbeidh sibh foighneach go dtí an chéad Aonad eile 

 

 Slán go fóill.
