I think I have said this before, but I say this again: The correct way to refer to decades in Irish is not by adding -í to the numbers, but -idí, which should be obvious to anybody when thinking of how they sound when read out: 1920idí = na naoi gcéad déag fichidí, 1930idí = na naoi gcéad déag tríochaidí, 1940idí = na naoi gcéad déag daichidí, 1950idí = na naoi gcéad déag caogaidí, and so on. The first decade could actually be read out as na naoi gcéad déag náidí, and this is not entirely facetious. However, the point is that the correct way is -idí, not -í, and I really wish someone would make it his task to change all these -í's into -idí's. I could start it myself, of course.Panu Petteri Höglund 08:51, 12 Lúnasa 2007 (UTC)
