Tried to replicate a Meme which reads: I'm not saying it's hot, but two Hobbits just came and threw a ring. Sgrìobh mi seo le : Chan eil mi ag ràdh gu bheil e teth an-seo, ach bha dithis Hobbit dìreach air tighinn a-steach 's a thilgeil fàinne. When I asked for assistance elsewhere, there was a lot ...

’S toil le... + name or pronoun rules

You will find with An Cùrsa Inntrigidh that you have to assumed the same rules apply for ann/anns, ri/ris, le/leis, etc., explained in earlier sections. I think that is why any further explanation for le/leis is omitted. Your tutor ought to have hinted at in when reading out the explanations.

Tapadh leibh! I saw those Wikipedia articles referencing dreach-fhola as a basis for Bram Stoker's 'dracula', etc., but I also saw articles on BaoBhan Sìth, and Abhartach. I do like Corp Coisiche as a suggestion though for zombie. :D I think trying to label Oidhche Shamhna (Halloween) decorations, p...

Thank you for all the assistance. Tha ceistean eile agam (mu dhéidhinn Oidhche Shamhna): Would 'gealach-fhuil' be the correct tr*nsl*t**n for 'Blood Moon'? Is 'bhampair' really the only tr*nsl*t**n for vampire? Isn't there Gaelic lore relating to these creatures - BaoBhan Sìth, Droch-Fhola, Dreach-F...

I used the following as a caption to a photo I took on the weekend, but I'm still not sure I got it right: "Éirigh na gréine os coin a' chnoic an-diugh." It is meant to say "Sunrise over the hill today". I've not used 'os coin' before but it said it was followed by the genitive, ...
