  • Tosaigh le ANSEO nó NUAIR. Tar éis cúpla tomhais agus roinnt gutaí agat bain usáid as focal bréige chun cabhrú leat. Mar shampla, tá an A, an O agus an S agat. Cuir isteach SVOVA nó VSOVA etc (V=litir anaithnid) ach ná brúigh ! – beidh SIOPA agat.

  • First three words CEART SIOPA FADHB use up a lot of consonants but I’m always struggling to trial other vowels. I usually surprise myself and get it in 4 or 5 even though my gaeilge isn’t too great

  • Kia ora @John. I like that you’re using a name and getting results all the way from NZ!
