ceist air "gus / in order to"

Tha gus + cumhadh-ceist a' ciallachadh an dà chuid, until agus so that . Le so that tha e cumanta an tràth cumhach(conditional) a chleachdadh, mar a rinn Gun Chleoc gu h-àrd. Rinn mi sin gus an tàinig an dorchadas - I did it until darkness came Rinn mi sin gus am biodh tu toilichte. I did that so th...

Facal-toisich anns a Gàidhlig/Introduction in Gaelic

And finally for today, as a thank you for getting all this free private tuition on here for all these weeks :D , may I (speaking as myself and not with my mod hat on) be cheeky and suggest that you make a Christmas donation to the most relevant worthy cause, namely, Am Faclair Beag ? :flur: http://w...

Facal-toisich anns a Gàidhlig/Introduction in Gaelic

Why not simply copy and paste your text and write in the corrections (good practice), instead of trying to edit or asking others to?
it's actually good to see the original too, and compare the changes, side by side.

Facal-toisich anns a Gàidhlig/Introduction in Gaelic

Point 5: Where did you get neachluchd? :mc: neach (singular) = a person. luchd (collective n.) is used as its plural. Both are most often used as part of a compound noun, eg neach-teagaisg (teacher), luchd-turais (tourists). pearsa, pearsachan - more a figure, a personality, than a neutral word for ...

Point 3: Yes. Think simple - you're a learner. And simple is often better in your own language too. :priob: Point 4: agam doesn't mean either my or have . It means "at me". It is put into service to express possession, which it does neatly in either context. Tha blog agam - a blog is at me...

Omission of the definite article before a role or title

Where did you get that sentence from anyway? You imply you have seen or heard it somewhere. It could be, as was my first assumption (and possibly Gun Chleoc's), that you replaced an actual name with "Ionadail" to save their face, thereby unwittingly changing the grammar from a genitive nou...

All the main verb tenses in Gàidhlig, no more mystery!

Also keep an eye out for an affordable copy of Colin Mark's large G>E dictionary. Apart from being an incredibly useful dictionary, crammed with examples, it has a book-sized grammar appendix at the back, with a stomping great section on verbs. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gaelic-English-Dictionary-Scot...
