This is a request for a few words (from an Australian speaker) I can't make out in a Youtube video.

Here is my transcript below, with the passage I didn't get in question marks.

This person, who is clearly a very stable, solid, family man, with a good career, and .. ????

The passage starts around 17:43 at https://youtu.be/gGuqXEo6soY?t=1063s

It sounds like "he risal his pectin in garlics (or Gaelics)" My guess would be that the meaning is something like "He's raising all his children in Gaelic" but I'm not quite sure.

The speaker has a tendency to rush and to elide some syllables. However, the key words that you're missing are:

... he's raised all these practicing Catholics.

In context, he's talking about his father-in-law, who has/had 10 children, all of whom remained in the Catholic church in a time when the speaker was seeing many of his peers fall away from the church. (The context starts back around 14:50.)

  • Thanks. By the way, even Youtube's automatic subtitler seems confused by the speaker's rushing and eliding as you say, in this particular passage May 4, 2023 at 18:29

I am not sure and don't listen all video to get context, but

he is raised all these practices and (?gathering?)

    It would certainly be a whole lot better guess if it even made any sense. What's the point of posting an answer that cannot possibly be correct? May 4, 2023 at 17:52
