Does anybody know what " mb'fhearrde " means? I saw in a song long time ago, in a translated sentence, but I'm not sure what
word it was translated into. I looked it up in Teanglann, but it doesn't show up. Maybe it's a grammatical variant of another word or something?

Can anyone give a different translation of "I'm starting to realize"?: The one I was originally given "Ritheann sé liom anois."

Tá sé ag tosnú a rith liom? But that sounds awkward to me. Tuigim anois? (I understand now?)

The original one seems like the correct one, because Irish does not have a single word for realise other than "tuigsint" (understand), and then the first one clarifies the thought better I think but maybe there are other ideas.

Hmm, then maybe I will use the original one. Can you give me individual definitions of the words because I might've understood them the wrong way?

I’m starting to realise - Tá tuiscint ag teacht chugam (tuiscint is the ‘standard’ form of tuigsint). You don’t say what’s wrong with the original suggestion.

I never meant that something was wrong with the original, I just wanted to see if there were different translations and see how they could
compare to the original. I just wanted to have some options to choose from. :)

Pearl, well "ritheann sé liom anois" literally means "runs it with_me now" (with me being one word in Irish). Errigal has a good suggestion also.
Their translation is literally "understanding is coming to me" or word-for-word "is understand at come to_me."

So, I did read it right, I thought the first one sounded a little strange. so I wanted to check for other translations for more options. I am okay with using the translations of "understand" because I know it is hard to translate word-for-word and I am okay if translations aren't exactly like the English sentence as long as the meaning/message is still the same and/or clear, you know?

Yes ok. Just keep in mind, Irish is a lot different than english with some expressions. the original is really not at all unclear within irish, except when you translate it. the ones with "understand" are good tho.
