Re: What does it mean? Various questions

Bha mi a' cnuasachadh agus bha mi a' meòrachadh mu dheidhinn, a Luchag, and I concluded that the mistake we're doing is that we want Gaelic to be mathematically logical while Czech and Russian are not. Our Slavic double negatives "I won't go nowhere", "they won't never tell" and so on don't turn int...

Re: What does it mean? Various questions

Sorry GC, but I don't get it either. The article is about "ann" in the phrase "there is" and about its being used to put more emphasis to a sentence, but it doesn't say that when you omit it you switch the meaning to its opposite. It expressly says that both "tha cù fon bhòrd" and "tha cù ann fon bh...

Re: What Made You Want To Learn Gàidhlig?

Ay, but you forget that I reacted to Teddie's "Also, my teacher has never used the gaelic accents in class, so i'm not sure whether she is going to teach us them later (though i can't see a reason for this)." I wanted to tell him that there is a reason to learn accents in Gaelic, even though his tea...

Re: What Made You Want To Learn Gàidhlig?

I know dozens, nay hundreds, of native Czech speakers, young and old, who struggle with the intricacies of spelling stuff, never mind the relative phoneticity of the orthography and never mind they all had years of Czech lessons in school. (So I didn't mean to sound like I was smirking, my apologies...

Re: What does it mean? Various questions

Tha am BBC (gu mì-fhortanach) a' toirt air falbh prògraman BBC Alba gu math sgiobalta. Gheibh thu prògraman na Beurla fad seachdain ann, saoilidh mi, ach chan fhaigh thu prògraman Gàidhlig no Cuimris ach air an latha fhèin uaireannan. Tha eagal orm gu bheil thu a' measgachadh dà rud - BBC Naidheach...

Am faod an roimhear a dhol roimhe "cò mheud"? Tha mi a' ciallachadh, am biodh "Air cò mheud Gàidheal a tha thu eòlach?" ceart cuideachd?

Re: Sùil air a' mhearachd

Chanainnsa gur e an trioblaid gu bheil an soidhne ag ràdh "Inverness (Museum & Art Gallery)" sa Bheurla ach "(Inverness Museum) & (Art Gallery)" sa Ghàdhlig. Bu chòir dha a bhith "Taigh-tasgaidh & Gailearaidh Ealain Inbhir Nis" (no "Taigh-tasgaidh & Gailearaidh-ealain Inbhir Nis").

Re: Guardian an aghaidh Gàidhlig

Chan eil mi cinnteach nach eil coimhearsneachdan sna bailtean as motha mar Ghlaschu no Dùn Èideann a chleachdas na Pòlainnis mar chànan làitheil, co-dhiù chun na h-ìre a chleachdar a' Ghàdhlig ann an àiteachan eile.

Re: Correct a Beginner's First Composition?

Eadar dà sgeul, tha na faclairean agam "glic" eadar-theangachadh mar an dà chuid "smart, clever" agus "wise". Nise, on a tha diofar mòr mòr eadar "smart/clever" agus "wise", a bheil buadhairean eile sa Ghàidhlig, feadhainn a nì an diofar seo? By the way, my dictionaries trnslt "glic" as both "smart,...

Re: Roinnt fhaclan ri 'n eadar-theangachadh

Chuireadh e iongnadh orm mura biodh "gèidh" an dà chuid na bhuadhair agus na ainmear, mar a tha "co-sheòrsach" (leis an iar-leasachan "-ach") agus mar a tha "gay" sa Bheurla, oir chan eil e ach an aon fhacal san litreachas Ghàidhlig.
