Re: Name pronunciation

You could always try to seek out a Gaelic version of your name. It might help if you knew what an "English version" of your name would be, for instance, is it like "Ellen" or "Helen" or "Alannah" - or what? "Helen", incidentally, is usually rendered ...

Re: am Monadh Ruadh - pronoun agreement

Compare English: if you were talking about a male, would you say, e.g., "He's Fred who's there", or if female "She's Flo who's there"? It would seem, shall we say, a little strange to a native English speaker.

Re: tha mi airson gàidhlig ionnsachadh

Yes - you have it there, Gull. "An toiseach" is better (being an abbreviation of "Ann an toiseach")

Re: tha mi airson gàidhlig ionnsachadh

By the way, what is this "other language" mentioned in the quote? Is it English? The first line looks reasonable - not quite sure about "aig toiseach tòiseachaidh" - just something about it strikes me as a little unnatural, can't quite put my finger on what.

Re: Halo

Seadh. Tachraidh seo. Tha mi 'n dòchas gun lorg thu oide eile no uair gu leòr.

Ah. This happens. I hope you find another tutor or enough time.

Re: Halo

Agus dè thachair ann an Lunnainn nuair a bha thu ag ionnsachadh na Gàidhlig? No a bheil thu fhathast ga h-ionnsachadh?

And what happened in London when you were learning Gaelic? Or are you still learning it?

Re: Le / leis before gach

It's a matter of choice. Some folk stick with "le" before "gach", some prefer "leis". I think "le" is more common, but both are acceptable.

Re: tr*nsl*t* You'll Never Walk Alone

Is the concept of "walk" used in the English version of that phrase adequately captured by the use of "coisich" in Gaelic? I have my doubts.

Re: What does this mean?

Show how much English I know - I thought "waggon" was a modern, acceptable spelling and, indeed, to be preferred to "wagon".

Re: Hi!

Little thing - you say you speak inglese and Eadailtis and you're learning Gaelic...if you see what I mean. As it happens, I'm pretty sure I'll be going to Itly this summer (Florence-Rome-Rimini-Naples-Genoa and the like): can I get by with Spanish? What's best for learning a wee bit of conversation...

Re: Tuinn

I would not put chapter headings in Gaelic unless the chapter contents were also.
