Polish has a broad and slender consonants too, and the "r's" are more similar to those of Gaeltacht Irish :)


Yes, Polish /r/ is identical to the Irish one, but we don’t have anything like Irish sleder r :(. Old Polish had a sound-like-that, but it evolved into modern ⟨rz⟩ which is just [ʒ ~ ʐ] (Czech still has ⟨ř⟩ [r̝] which is something between slender r and the zh sound).

And most of our slender (or soft as we call them) consonants have a bit different realization (are even more palatal), some of the Czech and Russian sounds are closer. ;-)

But still, I agree, that Irish phonology is easier to a Pole (or any other Slav) than to an English speaker. English has a shitload of phonemic vowels, and very few consonants, while both Irish and Slavic languages differentiate just a couple vowels, while having this a-few-variants-of-each-consonant thing.

Kto wiedział? Brzmicie bardziej irlandzcy niż Irlandczycy sami.
