Halo ‘s mise Iàcob

Fàilte! :D

Tha sin gu math inntinneach. Carson a tha thu ag ionnsachadh Gàidhlig Arrainneach, agus ciamar a tha thu ga h-ionnsachadh?

Welcome!
That's really interesting. Why are you learning Arran Gaelic, and how?

adjective following copula?

Think of these Is / Nach + adjective phrases (for now at least) as idioms, rather than as the standard structure. There are some useful more-or-less fixed phrases that you come across more commonly, and can safely use, e.g. Nach bochd sin! 'S math a rinn thu! Nach math a rinn iad! and you'll see oth...

Hálo, ciamar a tha thu?

Halò a-rithist! Dè an seòrsa ceuma a bhios tu a' dèanamh ann an Cumbria? Agus am bi thu ag ionnsachadh Gàidhlig air loidhne le SMO, no le colaiste eile? What kind of degree will you be doing in Cumbria? And will you be learning Gaelic online with SMO, or another college? Instead of a-staigh (inside)...

Colin Mark 'Gaelic Verbs: Systemised and Simplified' book vs Taic website for learning verb tenses?

Beware: "simplified" is very relative. Very very different from TAIC - wordy, explanatory, rather than tabular in approach. Lots of useful example sentences with notes, rather than rules, tables, boxes etc. Not always easy to find what you're hoping for, despite detailed (word) index. Good...

Copula Example Without It

Or if you want to practise the original structure:

's e latha brèagha a th' ann ann am Biggar (an-diugh).

Keep your 's X a th' ann (an Y) together, put place (and time) at the end.

Definition: It's a fine day. Extras: Where? When?

ag iarraidh...

The a+ lenited verbal noun occurs when the verb following a modal introduction (Feumaidh mi, tha mi ag iarraidh, tha mi an dòchas etc) has a direct object . This object is pulled in front of the verb it belongs to, contrary to English practice, hence the term "Inversion" being used for thi...
