..smooinee ayr Amy. (SMUNN-ee-AIR-AIM-ee) - ..Amy's father thought.
The verb stem (imperative) is the same as the past tense here ('smooinee'). And there's no need for things like 'yn ayr jeh Amy' or 'yn ayr ec Amy' - it's simply 'ayr Amy' for 'Amy's father'.
..hoig ee dy row.. (HIGG-ee-the-ROW) -..she understood that..was..
The verb stem here ('toig') has to be lenited to give the past tense.

..balley-thallooin lught Mylvoirrey..(BAL-ya-tol-OON-lukht-mul-VURR-a) -..the Mylvoirrey's farm..('..the farm of the people Mylvoirrey')
'Lught' can be used for a group of people with something in common.

Cha nee gloutagh..(ha-n'yay-GLOUT-akh) - Not gigantic..
..va anaase ec ny Manninee er ben Askell. (va-an-AASS-eck-na-MANN-in-ee-err- BEN-ASK-ell) -..the Manx were interested in Askell's wife.
V'ad shirrey urree ee dy 'osley feaillaghyn..(vadd-SHIRR-a-URR-ee-EE-the-AWZ- la-FAIL-yakh-in) - They were asking her to open festivals.. ('They were seeking on-her she to open festivals..')
