lovely-inspiring asked: Both ways are correct. In gaelic the c sounds like k but in most places today c have a soft s sound. So it just depends on whether you want to pronounce it the modern way or the old way.
Anonymous asked: From what I know it's simply a matter of preference between soft c and hard c. Back in Victorian times the soft c was more in vogue, and is still used for the basketball, but nowadays the hard c is more common.
Anonymous asked: Is it okay to pronounce celtic with a soft c if refering to the culture?I read somewhere that it is the english version of it,so it is not wrong.I said "seltic woman" once and a friend said it was wrong and rude to pronounce it like that
To be honest, I really don’t know.
It irks me when I see people reblog the photos I post up here but then they self-promote themselves.
Anonymous asked: Hi, folklorist here. Regarding your last ask, mythology is in fact a technical term referring to the tales told of a religious nature typically pertaining the origins of the world. Not just bedtime stories.
It also carries connotations that a lot of people who still practice those beliefs are not comfortable with.
My family is from Mexico. We’re very avid believers in La Virgen de Guadalupe, La Llorona, etc. We don’t call them mythology. They’re our past and our present, they’re part of the fabric of what made us as a people. Calling that mythology would be something the Spanish did in an attempt to control the indigenous populations.
Just think about what context you’re speaking from, and that you’re not putting down someone else’s beliefs.
Anonymous asked: Good day, I have a report, it's all about Celtic Mythology. I have researched on this already but it's all confusing. Can you please help me on an introduction about Celtic Mythology please?
I would refer to it as polytheism instead of mythology, first. We’re talking religion, not bedtime stories.
And it depends on how long your report is and what you’re covering. Are you talking about the Gaelic or the Brythonic? The vocations? The holidays?
