The star of Brooklyn gives Stephen a primer in speaking with an Irish brogue.
Bonus Round – Irishman here who’s sisters name is (and this is true): Caoilfhionn
Her accent is beautiful
those irish names, the hell, its like they used the english alphabet visually, and used a different language verbally
“You go to hell” ahahahahahahahaha
Time to look up Irish porn
I will marry anyone with that accent
I guess Irish is a bit tougher than Elvish.
She is absolutely beautiful! And i don’t usually comment that on youtube.
Holy shit those names are hard.
I think irish is one of my least favorite accents…
Ahh she gets me every time with her Irish accent.
You left off Domhnall. General Hux will be displeased.
the irish cant spell in english :P
This is a woman… advice to any women out there if you want a boyfriend act with class and like her
Irish accent is seriously the most adorable accent ever ^_^
Woah, Quay-va?? Haha awesome I didn’t know other irish people said it differently. It’s pronounced Kee-va where im from
I knew Siobhan and Niamh. Must remember “Saoirse like inertia.”
That woman is gorgeous ??
I love the Irish Accent !! Wish I could do it .. ..Too bad All I can do is the Indian Accent
she’s hot. she tickles me lucky charms
Not to burst anyone’s bubble, but while she is Irish, her accent is heavily put on
If only connor mcgregor sounded like her, he would be complete. Fights like a girl already.
2:29 Nah, I don’t think she bites when she’s frustrated.
I need an Irish girl in my life.
mh and bh, is either pronounced w or v, combination of “aoi”, approximates to ‘ee’ sound., dh is pronounced as a ‘y’ , and sometimes there are slight differences depending on where you’re from in ireland
Saoirse means freedom.
Please, can anyone tell me the details of the dress she’s wearing?
I always read it as “seahorse”
To complicate matters, I pronounce some of those names slightly differently because pronunciation depends on where in Ireland you’re from.
I’m surprised they dont have Aoife there. Can anyone here tell me how to pronounce Aoife? I just started a new job and there’s someone named Aoife here, and I dunno how to pronounce her name and I’m afraid to ask anyone now.
The alphabet for Irish used to match up with the pronunciation better, and then they switched to the Roman alphabet as part of the language revival, and so now you have letter combinations that indicate sounds way different from what they would in the Roman alphabet. In any case, there’s a lot of Irish spoken now in Ireland. Listen to it sung, like Sean-nos music, very nice.
Funny enough Colbert is a common enough sir name in ireland . one of the executed 1916 leaders name was Con Colbert we say it as cole bert not cole bare .there are a lot of Colbert train stations in ireland.
what a fucking sweetheart
in almost all of her interview, Saoirse drinks the beverage (coffee or alcohol who knows) that is provided for her.. has anyone else noticed this.. many interviewees don’t do that..
Time to look some Irish porn… or closely looks like this lady
“m” takes on more of “w” role in irish
Most often Saoirse is pronounced ‘Seer sha’ rather than ‘Sur sha’ Also Oisin and Siobhan are incorrectly written on the cards – they lack a symbol called a ‘fada’ which causes the vowel to be lengthened. So: Oisín is not ‘Oish in’ but ‘Oish een’ Siobhán is not ‘Shove an’ / ‘Shiv an’ but ‘Shove awn’ /’Shiv awn’
She’s so good in Brooklyn. I hope she wins something for it this year.
Always funny seeing Americans struggle with Irish pronunciations. Give them a Kerry, or a Cork accent, or even a midlands accent and see how they get on. Even we can’t understand them sometimes!
Just wait till he interviews a Welsh person.
Fun with romanization of languages that were not meant for 26 letters!
Delighted to see the spelt Tadhg right ?
This is why stephen is the man, if this was fallon the names would be a part of some game called “guess that name!” and he would laugh hysterically at every single one. Stephen just makes it relaxed and funny.
I was hoping they’d explain Aoife. I’m reading a book in which one of the characters is named Aoife and I’ve no clue how to pronounce it!
Whoop my name made it on to the Colbert Show!!!
“are you right there Father Ted?”
I learn all mine from Saoirse and Conor McGregor
She seems like she would be a tough teacher lol
hey! mexicans can be pale, we have nerds too
Stepehen did better than Sean Connery in “The Untouchables”
It’s weird hearing her pronounce her name as she does. She goes for the “inertia” where as we pronounce it “Seer-sha” so it has more of a “fear” sound rather than an “inner” sound at the beginning.
All those Irish names make perfect sense on they’re spelt, the only problem is people keep talking about them as if they’re English names with English sounding letters. They’re not at all, they’re in Irish/ Gaeilge. In Gaeilge they make perfect sense, but because Ireland now speaks mowtly in English, people believe everything we have comes from English which just isn’t true. Very similar alphabets but not identical, that’s the difference people need to understand.
to be fair, those irish names aren’t in the english language, it’s the gaelic language….
BREAKING NEWS: Names in different languages aren’t the same as English names.
The fact that her name pronounciation makes the biggest sence in comparation with the others…. :D
What the hell! tear up your dictionaries and live in caves! nothing means anything anymore!
I’m British and can confirm that nobody uses those silly looking names here.
I am sorry audience… I couldn’t stop staring at this gorgeous fascinating woman… WOW.
Whoa, cmon Saoirse, there’s some white Mexicans.
You talking trash about my name Stephen?
Domhnall doesn’t sound that crazy now, does it?
Stephen’s accent was not bad? She was being nice; it sounded more Australian than Irish.
How did I fall in love with her so quickly?
Sounds like a nightmare girlfriend. Nice voice though.
Her accent is so odd , I’m from Carlow like she is, and she has a fierce Dublin twang in a lot of her words. She doesn’t even pronounce her own name right, everyone else says “Seer-sha” . Even the way she says Siobhan. I’m like Shiv-awn and she’s saying Shiv-on.
theres also Aine, Faolan, Domhnall, Padraig, Sile, Cathal, Aoibheen, Caoimhin (I cant get fadas on my laptop)… the list is endless!
This is awesome haha
Holy shit.. that’s the little girl from Hanna??
“Brooklyn” was SUCH an awesome movie. I truly recommend it. Went to see it with my husband who loves only action and he loved it too. Great date movie. Ronan and the whole cast killed it.
She’s the best
They should make a follow up to Hanna now that she is an adult.
Smell my finger
She’s the hottest hobbit I’ve ever seen!
They forgot Baggins, Took, Gamgee and Brandybuck!
What’s with the stupid Dublin accent? She grew up in Carlow ffs
Whale. Oil. Beef. Hooked.
