  1. as a fan of English, I find the pronunciation game funny. I mean, why bother? regardless of accents, you all have the fabulous word "one". how the heck is that thing pronounced as it is?? Then you have blood and flood and those should be like good. but they aren't. then the word finite, approximately fuy night. but the whole thing changes with the antonym, it is not in fuy night. as if the antonym of friendly were unfroondloo

  2. Time for English to get phonetic with spellings. Say what's written, and write how it sounds. Keep it simple. This is for the future. History of all languages is great.

  3. Call the Irish, Welsh, and Scottish a part of England and brace for the knife to their throat, no joke, just history. Thank god for the Irish minute men Patriots kicking British ass in Massachusetts. Sent the English literally back to their country defeated and humiliated. 7/20/19 Unlike Nazi Trump in present day attacking Congresswoman of color. Way to negatively stereotype your German bloodline Trump as "wannabe Hitler 2"

  4. Looks a lot more slavic than celtic-coming from someone coming from a mostly slavic, a little celtic and germanic country

  5. I wish Steve would stop interrupting her.
    Anyway this is a reminder to me that the Irish do kind of speak a foreign language.

  6. She is SOOO loveable. <3
    she's naturally beautiful but her personality just makes her even more captivating! She's got it all.

  7. Remember when pronouncing a simple sentence as such as:
    "Come over here."
    You pronounce it as:
    "Come over hair."

  8. Lol wow that skin tone joke had the audience in silence! That would have gotten a few laughs I recon here in UK

  9. Here's the funny thing – She's American! Born in Brooklyn. True, she grew up in Ireland, but I find it amusing that this paragon of Irish lovliness was born in New York.

  10. I loved this actress in Brooklyn, think she is destined for a great movie career. A bit dissapointed in Colbert and her stereotyping of Mexicans. He told her you look like a Suarez and she answered especially the skin tone. They both need to realize that Latinos come in all skin tones, some exactly like their own skin tones.

  11. If the Irish, who have all the vowels could get with the Welsh, who have all the consonants, I think the world could be an easier place to pronounce.

  12. Think the Oirish have it bad with mangled accents, try being Australian and having to listen to american actors mimicking pronunciations that sound like a south afrikan, in turn mimicking a London Cockney.

  13. Mick's … the only folks on the planet who can take perfectly fine letters from the English language, put them together, and turn them into pronunciation mince meat.

  14. The irony in America today is Mexican immigrants are being treated like the Irish were when they came to America…… the Irish were even called the "inside skinned negroes."

  15. I’ve only heard her speak with an American accent so this is really messing with my head😂😂 She has a really beautiful accent though

  16. Mexican “skin tone”??!! What?!!?! Mexicans are also very much white skin, colored (blue/green among others not just brown or black) blond and even red hair. Sheesh! Oh my! Ok we’ll let it go since she’s quite interesting and I love her on “Mary Queen is Scots” among other great movies.

  17. Saoirse Ronan has a Dublin accent and Ireland has multiple accents varying from county to county and Dublin people are probably the easiest to understand
    There are some Irish accents people would have trouble understanding
