I did a few for the books that I owned when I first started out, but I have long since lost the beginner's perspective, so I can't add any myself.

Re: Dà-chànanach: Dè an uair a tha e? / How late is it?

Some people lke to stick "a h-" in front of vowels in some contructions, so I guess it doesn't matter much.

Re: math math vs glè mhath

I'm not certain of the degree between the 2 expressions here, but math math is definitely adult language.

Re: Word order in a Dè... bhios question

Dè an dath a bhios orra The other word order is wrong. "a bhios orra" is a relative clause, so it needs something to refer to, which is "an dath". The pattern is: Dè/Cò <something you want to know or identify> a <verb in relative form + phrase about something you already know> càite a takes the depe...
