    Ah... All becomes clear..!

    BTW - Aimée, are you planning on hooning to Cambridge as well? Where do you think you'll be applying to/have you applied to/are you going to (I think I've exhausted all possibilities there!)?

    Pol,
    how do you say your name?

    Is it like "opinion poll" or "fireman's pole" or what>?

    edit: i just remembered that you say it like opinion pole... i think i am losing it.. must be the coriander

    Is it like "pole" or more like "poll" as in "polly the parrot" ?

    Sort of, yes.

    Irish is a strange language. Basically the language spoken in the Scottish Isles and in Isle of Man schools is the same thing.

    With the English speakers moving in across the Gaelic speaking countries, the various areas where Gaelic was used grew apart. As the Gaelic speakers were generally poor and operated in family circles, they never had cause to to travel to other Gaeltacht areas.

    This caused the language to seperate into different dialects and also there is vastly different pronounciation in different places.

    I say my name like a (election/fireman's ) POLL, but other people may say it differently. (v.sup. pronounciation of Roisin)

    That's just a tad OTT on the different pronounciation!

    In Ireland, on the Ardteist, you get marked on (among other things) reading a text out loud whilst being taped.

    The blag is that everyone gets full marks so long as they keep it going fluently as mistakes are written off as dialectical variation in pronounciation!

    You also get extra marks for answering papers in Irish rather than English (15% on science papers down to 2% on art, I think). You obviously fail Irish using English and vice versa!

    No, but I asked Katie and her friends about it. If people from Caversham Heights can say it's a very nice place to be - then I want to be there!

    Boy... That sounds good! I can temporarily forget my advanced age!
