Chan eil thu ag ràdh gu bheil rudeigin ceàrr le "dìreach air", a bheil?

Cha robh e cearr ach bha mi dhen bheachd gun robh e beagan cus dheth.

Tha iad air... sort of implies the "just"; so no need to add it again.

Ciamar a tha an t-sìde / How's the weather?

Biodh i blàth mura robh gailleann ann.

It would be warm if it wasn't for the storm.

Am Bìoball Gàidhlig 1992

Nowadays, you add a "tha" and leave out the "do".

Is minic Gall maith

I guess "Tha Goill math gu tric" would work.

Note that to refer to Englishmen, one would say "Sasannaich" - "Gall" generally means Lowlander nowadays. Strangers/Foreigners are "coigrich".

Leniting M at the beginning of an initialism

Well, pronunciation tops letters - you don't say "an unit" in English but "a unit" - unlike "apple" in "an apple", "unit" does not start with a vowel when you say it. It's a common learner's mistake though, isn't it? ;)

Taboo or??

When you stub your toe, you can also say "Murt!", or a more colorful one, "Tòin an t-Sàtain!"

I got both of those from Lewis friends.

On a chaidh Adaptxt a-mach à bith, feumaidh sibh SwiftKey a chleachdadh a-nis. Chan eil e ri fhaighinn ach air Android.

Different plurals in different dictionaries

There is also cànanan/cànain, dealbhan/deilbh ... it's a dialect rather than a gender thing.

Just like with verbam nouns where you have to remember whether it's -adh or -achadh - they can simply go one way or the other.
