Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the riverside field

    Baile fearainn measartha fada caol é seo a bhfuil sruthán ag rith tríd.

    Tabhair faoi deara an fuaimniú -ao- mar /iː/ idir /k/ leathan agus /l/ leathan atá á chur in úil ag na foirmeacha stairiúla ón 16ú haois anuas. Tá an fhuaim chéanna le sonrú i bhfoirmeacha béarlaithe bf An Chaológ Theas/Thuaidh (#28788) in Uí Fhairchealláin. Féach go gcuireann an litriú luath béarlaithe 1297 ‘Kelog’ /eː/ in úil sa chás seo. Cf. an mionainm An Chaológ faoi bf Tír Chóigir (#28605) i bPort na hInse.
