Access to taic.me.uk website for learners?

Cha chreid mi gu bheil iad a' crawligeadh ach faidhlichean poblach ach chan eil mi cinnteach agus tha e a' crochadh gu mòr air càit a bheil iad agad. Ma chuireas mi rud suas air akerbeltz.org, fiù as aonais ceangal thuige, gheibh Google greim air nuair a nì e indexing (agus bidh lethbhreacan san tas...

Access to taic.me.uk website for learners?

BTW I wasn't aware the whole site had been archived. Does this not infringe some intellectual rights? Especially as I don't see any acknowledgement to author. There are different legal interpretations of projects like the Wayback Machine but overall, they don't make any money off archiving stuff an...

Who created it, do we know? Maybe we could suggest moving it or allowing us to take a copy and develop it

"Cha deachaidh" and "cha deach". Do they mean exactly the same thing?

There's like a zillion regional variants. The most common mid-ground form mostly taught to learners (in my experience) is cha deach. But there's nothing wrong with cha deachaidh either, it has been around a long time and is common in the Highlands and Islands. Pick one and stick with it 8-)

General greeting for festive observance

Càrnabhail sona dhuibh should work (visit cereproc.com, select Ceitidh and paste the text, she does a decent job). So literally that's "Carnival happy to you(plural)". It gets complicated if you try and go with happy holiday or happy celebration, there's no easy word for celebration and h...

Facal-toisich anns a Gàidhlig/Introduction in Gaelic

Tapadh leat a charaid, tha sin ro choibhneil :) I'd be ok if you bought a t-shirt (or hoodie since it's baltic) from my new shop too. Same pocket and you get something you can show off :priob:

Bùth lèintean ùr / A new shirt shop

Tha bùth ùr agam - lèintean-t (agus hoodies is rudan mar sin) le Gàidhlig (agus cànain inntinneach eile orra eadar Norn agus Jèrriais, Basgais is Gaeilge) orra. 'S e Polcan-faing an t-ainm a th' air, nach dig sibh a chèilidh oirrn, cinnteach gu bheil rudeigin ann a chòrdas ribh fhèin no ri caraid ag...

Omission of the definite article before a role or title

Oh I don't think we need to reinvent the word but I can subvert its usage 8-)

Omission of the definite article before a role or title

Rats. Something about my version of "milkman" was niggling and I thought I'd snuck a swift edit in before anybody noticed. But you were too quick for me! Je suis désolée :priob: I take your point about English optionally declining the option of preceding a genitive chain (I'm carefully av...

Omission of the definite article before a role or title

Firstly. The disappearance of the definite article in these compound nouns has a big effect on the "tone" of a Gàidhlig sentence and marks it as something significantly different from the equivalent English. Does anyone know why this structure arises? Or do we just say "this is the w...
