Iogh, yew, the ninth letter of the Gaelic alphabet now in use. I has two sounds — (1) both long and short, long like ee in deem, as, sìn, stretch; cìr, comb; short like ee in feet, (only as feet is pronounced by a Scotsman) as, bith, existence; sir, seek. (2) short and obscure, like i in miss, as, is, am, art, are, in which particular case it does not give the sh sound to s. Gun ì, gun ó, gun adhbhar, said when anything is apparently done without rhyme or reason.
