Re: Cothrom (an iris) a' tighinn gu ceann

... Thuirt Bòrd na Gàidhlig nach b' urrainn dhaibh airgead a bharrachd a thoirt dhaibh seach gu bheil Riaghaltas na h-Alba air buidseat a' Bhùird fhèin a reothadh airson trì bliadhna, an dèidh dhaibh a ghearradh ron a sin. ...

Re: 'Chaidh' passive in relative clauses

@ Nìall Beag: So if I Google "but the majority of them is" and get half a million hits, does it mean that all of those are by erring non-native speakers, or that in "the majority of them" the qualifier is the pronoun?

Re: 'Chaidh' passive in relative clauses

Oops, I always forget that with "majority" you can use either "is/was" or "are/were" in English. (You can't in Czech, it's a singular noun and that's that, even if it describes a plural concept. Same like "team", "government" &c.)

Re: 'Chaidh' passive in relative clauses

But "The pieces THAT were made there" isn't "Na pìosan a chaidh A dhèanamh an sin", it's "Na pìosan A chaidh a dhèanamh an sin". Personally, I would think correct should be either "Bha a' mhòr-chuid (den phìosan) a chaidh a dèanamh..." or Bha a' mhòr-chuid (de...

Re: Dè an t-ainm a th'ort?

Chan ann, uaireannan, m.e. a rèir RnanG: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03965vl Aig amannan eile, ge-tà 7 gu neònach, tha ainm ceart Bheurla aig Albannach agus eadar-theanagachadh aig Sasannach, m.e. "Gordon Brown no Daibhidh Camshron" sa Chaledonian Mercury (no An t-Airgean-beò Caillean...

Re: Dè an t-ainm a th'ort?

Uaireannan, feumar compromise reusanta a bhith ann. Mar eisimpleir, tha an litir š san t-sloinnidh agam. Gu nàdarrach, chan uarrainn dhomh iarraidh air na Breatannaich ga chleachdadh nuair a bhios iad furm air choireigin a' lìonadh air a' choimpiutair, tha fhios nach bi am meur-chlàir Sheacach aca (...

Census 2011 results in

So, what we all waited for with bated breath is here. According to today's release by the General Register Office for Scotland, In 2011, the proportion of the population aged 3 and over in Scotland who could speak, read, write or understand Gaelic was 1.7 per cent (87,000), compared with 1.9 per cen...

Re: Dealbhan-magaidh 's spòrsail Gàidhlig

Feumaidh mi aideachadh nach eil mi ga thuigsinn. Dè a tha ann am "mataraidh"? Cha do lorg mi am facal àite sam bith.

Re: What does it mean? Various questions

As the English version says "The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said 30% of the building was damaged by the fire, as well as various machinery, and half of it was affected by smoke." I think they meant that.

Re: New Gaelic center in Oban

In your case, I would have thought it was of interest how Scotland (your current home) is seen in your old home. A different window. I can see what you mean, but after decades spent there I think I have a better idea about that than what I can glean from Czech media, especially as nine times out of...

Re: Có "Vic"?

Hmm, chunnaic mi Rapal o chionn nam mìosan agus cha robh òran ann nach robh air a sheinn sa Bheurla. Mas math mo chuimhne, bha am bean-labhairt a' bruidhinn sa Ghàdhlig ach bha na h-agallamhan leis na ceòladairean uile sa Bheurla. Mar sin, dè cron as urrainn do Galloway a dhèanamh?

Re: New Gaelic center in Oban

I have friends in Europe who are interested in Scotland and sometimes pass on snippets from the online Scotsman (which they subscribe to, and i don't) about Gaelic and Scottish history from my area, in case I have missed them. I am glad they do that and have in fact missed things they passed on. I ...
