Hello - Dia duit

(literally, God be with you) pronounced:
jee-ah ghwich,
dee-ah gwit,
or
jee-ah gwit.
The first pronunciation is based on the “rule” that “d” preceded or followed by a slender vowel (i or e) is pronounced like a j, and “t” preceded or followed by a slender vowel is pronounced like a soft ch (like the English word witch.)

Duit is the singular form. If you are saying hello to more than one person at the same time, replace duit with dhaoibh, pronounced gwiv or yeev.
