Are you willing to adopt an Irish word? A frail, endangered word that has no speakers left to say aloud, to slip it into sentences, to breathe life into it.

The Irish language has 4,400 different words to describe someone. I need you to take responsibility for just one of them; cherish it, play with it, make it your own. If you’re willing, please consider undergoing my short ritual of cleansing and preparation, after which I’ll select a word specifically for you. It will be bestowed in a public ceremony.
