A little late, but...

Dia dhaoibh, a chairde, Jason is ainm dom, agus táim i mo chónaí i SAM. Is maith liom foghlaim teangacha, agus táim ag foghlaim Gaeilge mar go n-airím gur féidir leis na teangacha Ceilteacha úsáid beagáin chabhrach agus go bhfuil an méid seo Éireannach anseo. Táim anseo chun ceisteanna gramadúla a chur do nach féidir liom fáil na bhfreagracha ar líne. Go raibh maith agaibh as uile chabhrach a thug sibh dom cheana.

Hi everyone. I m Talat.

I am in Exeter for academic education and I have been learning Irish for a while from youtube videos. I found here and wanted to be a part to meet Irish friends and maybe talk Irish in the future.

I am originally Turkish and I have great enthusiasm about Celtic History.

There are some historical places in Anatolia ( Republic of Turkey ) like ' Gallipoli ' or ' Galata Tower '. Those places are related to ancient Celtic Empire. I also read a few books about Irish-Turkish relationship in the 19th century.

Thank you for this website which is extremely beneficial for beginners like me.

Welcome, Talat!

You're right about the Celtic influence in what is now Turkey (long before the Turks arrived). The Celts entered Anatolia (central Turkey) in the 3rd century BC, as Alexander's empire broke up. It was supposedly at the invitation of a local king (of Bithynia, I think) who wanted them to help fight his enemies, but they later became mercenaries for various kings, and had their own kingdom for a while, called Galatia, with Ankara as its capital (some say that they founded Ankara, but there may have been an earlier city there). Most Christians don't know that the Galatians who were addressed by the apostle Paul in one of his epistles in the New Testament were Celts. He wrote the epistle in Greek, which was the international language in the eastern Mediterranean back then, but it is believed that the Celtic language which they spoke may have survived until as late as the 600's.

Absolutely! I have born in Ankara and my family still lives there.

This is what influenced me too. By the way, according to articles i read, there is no 'first-arrived' tribe in Anatolia but as you mentioned Celtic history is being underestimated in Anatolia. Moreover, there is certain evidence in central Asia - turphan depression ( now Uyghur Turks live there ) about Celtic-Irish lived there too. Celtic Mummies, inscriptions which were written in Celtic language etc. Unfortunately, the Chinese government suppressing this evidence to manipulate regions history.

Religions are dominating the historical researches so there are not many kinds of research related to the ancient world.

After i gain a knowledge about celtic languages and when my engineering master finish, i will focus this issues.

Finally, could you please advice me some reliable sources ( book, article ) about Celtic History ?

Dia Daoibh!

I have been taking lessons on Duolingo for two months. I am loving it! But the language is still so new to me I can't yet carry on a meaningful conversation (unless you want to talk about food, lol) I have reached a point in my lessons where it's getting complicated. I made it through lenition and eclipses well enough but now that we have reached question forms, I'm totally lost. I am in too far and it's too important to me to give up now, so I am hoping someone here can help!!! It's such a beautiful language.

Hi!

My name's Beatrix, I'm an Australian violist who's been living in Europe between Vienna and Berlin for about 10 years. I'm super interested in Irish history and culture, inspired at first by my family's heritage (having emigrated following the Great Famine). Unfortunately, however, that interest did not extend to learning Irish until now haha perhaps because I am so appalling at languages.. now that I have grasped the Viennese dialect and regular German, I have a bit more confidence to learn.

I play experimental/improv viola and am influenced by Irish music and literature, mythology. Recently, I've been performing some trad songs but it's very hard for me to memorise all the text so I thought about writing my own very simple poetry in order to be able to remember words. It would be great if I could ask for some translations, as my knowledge of the language and particularly, pronunciations grows.

Really excited to have found the forum, thank you!

Beatrix :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
