Obair bhaile “Homework”

Write a paragraph that describes an object, a very familiar object, so that other people can guess what it is.

You’ll read your description in class on May 9, and people can kind of play 20 questions to figure out what you are talking about.

  1. Is meaisín glórach é. Bíonn sé istigh go hiondúil. Tá mála aige. Tá an meaisín a úsáidtear chun urlár a ghlanadh.

    Is folúsghlantóir(“vacuum cleaner”) é.

  2. I suppose this was a stretch of “very familiar”, but I have at least four of them
    (I said“Tá agam ceathair rudaí seo.”), so on average everybody present in class that night had
    one :-)> Anyway, once the idea entered my mind I could not let it go.

    Is seanrud matamaiticiúil é. Tá sé déanta as thrí phíosa adhmaid, nó miotail, nó plaisteach. Is féidir leis an píosa lár bogadh.
    Tá sraitheanna de huimhreacha ar gach trí phíosa.

    Is rialóir sleamhnáin (“slide rule”) é.
