The complete list of the 1000 most common Irish words

Irish is a Celtic language native to the island of Ireland. Until the 19th century, Irish was the main language spoken in Ireland (now it’s English).

Irish, Welsh, and Breton are the three most spoken Celtic languages.

To produce this list of the thousand most frequent Irish words, we performed a statistical analysis on a large collection of Irish texts.

This vocabulary list is sorted by frequency, which means that the words appearing near the top are used more often than those appearing further down the list.

Other resources for learning Irish include Pimsleur (which provides a free lesson) and Italki, an online tutoring platform that has some Irish tutors.

Here is the list of the 1000 most common Irish words:

  1. an
    [article]
    (the)

    “An” is the definite article in Irish. Unlike English, Irish does not have an indefinite article.

  2. a
    [determiner]
    (its, their, his, her)
  3. ar
    [preposition]
    (on)
  4. agus
    [conjunction]
    (and)
  5. i
    [preposition]
    (in)
  6. is
    [particle]

    The Irish word “is” often serves as a copula that translates to the English verb “to be”. For example, the Irish phrase “Is mise Seán” would be translated into English as “I am Sean”. For describing states, for example, “Sean is happy”, the Irish verb “bí” is used instead.

  7. go
    [preposition]
    (to)
  8. ag
    [preposition]
    (at)
  9. le
    [preposition]
    (with)
  10. é
    [pronoun]
    (he, him, it)

    An example of an Irish sentence that contains the word “é” is “Ná habair é, déan é” which means “Don’t say it, do it.”

  11. [pronoun]
    (he, it)
  12. de
    [preposition]
    (from)
  13. bhí
    [verb]
    (was)
  14. mar
    [conjunction]
    (as)
  15. sin
    [pronoun]
    (that)
  16. [verb]
    (is)

    The word “tá” is a conjugated form of the Irish verb “bí” (which means “to be”). Irish is a VSO (verb-subject-object) language, so the verb is often the first word in a sentence. For example, the English sentence “Seán is tall” becomes “Tá Seán ard” in Irish.

  17. leis
    [preposition]
    (with him)
  18. ach
    [conjunction]
    (but)
  19. ó
    [preposition]
    (from)

    In Irish, the word “ó” can be a preposition that means “from”. This word also frequently appears in Irish family names, as a noun meaning “descendant of”. An example is the Irish name “Ó Néill” and its English transcription, “O’Neill”.
