|do||(dhŭ), preposition, to|
|do'n ¹||(dhun) = do an, to the|
|níl||(neel), am not, art not, is not, are not|
In the spoken language, do'n is not used to express motion only in the a few stereotyped phrases, like ag dul, do'n daingean, going to Dingle; ag dul do'n Roiṁ , going to Rome; ó Ḋoire do’n tSr aṫ ban , from Derry to Strabane, etc. In all such cases, it is pronounced 'on'
1. See §114. Besides do, do'n, there are other words and phrases for "to", "towards", etc; such as ċum, ċuig or aig (a very common word), go dti, etc.
We think it better to defer the study of these sounds until we have spoken of combinations of vowels.
