Lets assemble a set of Terms of Endearment. These are very useful phrases to learn and ones that we can use on our family and close friends. They might also be perfect captions to use in the Photo Caption thread!
Here's the first one:
A chuisle - pulse (when speaking TO someone)
Mo chuisle - my pulse (when speaking OF someone)
A chuisle mo chroí - My dear darling / love / treasure. (lit. pulse of my love/heart)
pronounced - uh keesh-la muh kree
This saying became very popular when it was used in the movie - Million Dollar Baby. Fight trainer Frankie Dunn (Clint Eastwood) gives this name to his aspiring young fighter Maggie Fitzgerald (Hillary Swank) and puts "Mo Chuisle" (my darling) on her robe. This is an excellent movie and is worth seeing if you already haven't.
