Re: Ceistean

1. na cloinne, because it's a mass noun and doesn't have a plural Adding the article would be wrong in this case though, becaise it's not the books belonging to specific children, but children's books in general. Your hunch to add an article is not a bad one though, because Gaelic uses it more often...

Re: Clàran Uireadan ?

Which title case? Where? Do you mean Faclair Matamataig? That's the title of the publication---their case. Or do you mean the name of Broadford Primary School, or their CD, which they call "Spòrs le Uireadan". Please tell me which of these you consider bad typography, because I'm a stickler for cor...

Gabh mo leisgeul, tha thu ceart.

Re: Seòlta Gaelic / Newswatch on Gab

Tha seo inntinneach. Nach cuir thu a' Ghàidhlig air thoiseach na Beurla? Feumaich mi briogadh air "Read More" 2 thuras gu tric mus nochd an t-eadar-theangachadh agad.
