Possessives Query

With third person possessives which don't show the distiction between alienable and inalienable clearly though lenition etc, it's very common to resort to aige/aice/aca irrespective of whether the object theoretically falls into one or the other category of posession. So for clarity, càit a bheil am...

Copula Confusion

Have to say that has completely thrown me. They have used the Bi form of 'To Be' to link a noun and a pronoun when I didn't think this was allowed.


Incidentally, ann is a preposition, not a pronoun. Maybe that's what threw you?

"Courtesy of"

Mar is trice, canaidh tu "courtesy of" ma fhuair thu cead o chuideigin rudeigin a chleachdadh. Leis a sin, chanainn "le cead X"

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...

BTW I wasn't aware the whole site had been archived.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...
