Du/irt Donncha, inter alia, gur dhu/irt duine eile:  Only foreigners
who have been taught to speak it <English> speak it well.
 
Sea, ach nach iad na rudai/ beaga a scaoileann an sce/al? Cad chuige a bhfuil
"good little boy" i gceart, ach nach bhfuil "little good boy"? (Si/lim go raibh
tra/cht ag Marion tamall o/ shoin faoi ord cheart na n-aidiachtai/ sa Ghaeilge.)
 
Fado/ fado/ nuair a bhi/ me/ o/g (caithfidh gur fado/ a bhi/ se/!),
bhi/ mise agus cara ag rothai/ocht o/ bhru/ o/ige chuig bru/ o/ige eile
tri/ dhroch-aimsear Thi/r Chonaill Theas, nuair a chas fear rothair eile linn.
Togha an Bhe/arla aige, bla/s Oxford (dar linne) agus shi/l muid gur Sasanach a
bhi/ ann, rud na/r chuir aon ro/-aoibhneas orainn!
 
Ach i ndiaidh cu/pla la/, rinne se/ botu/n: ar seisean "...a friend of mine
is translating a book into American..." Cheartaigh se/ e/ fe/in la/ithreach,
ach bhi/ a fhios againn ansin na/rbh Shasanach e/. Gearma/ineach a bhi/ ann.
 
<A perfect-English speaker who made only one slip i
three days hostile scrutiny - "...American" - turning out to be German.>
