There are many sounds in Gaelic that may be new to you, or sound different from how you might expect them to sound. This is not an extensive list of sounds but will give you a short introduction to the most commonly used Gaelic sounds.
Please note that we may refer to a sound as being broad or slender. This means that it has broad, or slender vowels. A broad vowel is one of the vowels a, o, u. A slender vowel is either i or e.
