Richard, a chara: On-line bookstores: Cupla Focal - http://www.cuplafocal.ie (Ireland - new books: all Irish language) An Litriocht - http://www.litriocht.com (Ireland - new books: all Irish language) Kenny's - http://www.kennys.ie (Ireland - new and used: some Irish language) Books Ulster - http://www.booksulster.com (Ireland - used: some Irish language) Cló Mhaigh Eo - http://www.leabhar.com (Ireland - new books for children: all Irish language) Cló Iar-Chonnachta - http://www.cic.ie/cgi-bin/index.asp (Ireland - new books and music: all Irish language) I've ordered from all of the above sites and never had a problem. I'm sorry I don't have any U.S. sites for you. (I've found it cheaper to order books shipped ''economy'' from Ireland!) For pronunciation rules on line try: http://www.ling.uni-potsdam.de/~green/gaeilge.htm (IPA phonetics) http://www.celticpagan.com/celt/pron.htm (has sound files) Hope this helps!
