Re: Last word you learned in a foreign language

I'm having another go at the Irish Duolingo course, after pretty much ignoring it for a year. Good news: my memory for obscure nouns is much better than I expected! Bad news: my memory for even common verbs is much worse than I expected...

Anyway, a word I've re-learned: taitin - "to shine". It's notably because it's also how pleasing and enjoying are expressed: an dtaitníonn mo chulaith leat? - literally "does my suit shine with you?", but actually "does my suit please you?","do you enjoy my suit?"
