This is a word list that goes from, at the top - brilliant - down to OK and then on down to - a load of rubbish - at the bottom. The problem I have is that in the Irish dictionary very often I'm coming up with the same words where I'm trying to find a nuance of 'diminishing or increasing intensity' if you see what I mean, so I'm not quite sure if the Irish words are in the right order or whether they reflect accurately the English ones.

brilliant - ar dóigh ar fad

amazing - ar fheabhas

incredible - thar cionn

fantastic - iontach

really really good - an-mhaith ar fad ar fad

really good - an-mhaith ar fad

quite good - measartha maith

not at all bad - ní caill ar bith air (sin)

fairly good - réasúnta maith

not bad - níl sé ró-olc

good - maith

OK - cuíosach

not good - leathmhaith

not very good - níl romhaith é

bad - olc

pretty bad - cuibheasach olc

very bad - dochreidte

incredibly bad - fíor-olc

terrible - millteanach ?

horrible - gránna ?

absolutely awful - ainnis amach is amach ?

atrocious - uafásach ?

a load of rubbish - truflais cheart chríochnaithe ?
