SG tat: verification would be so grately appreciated!!

Unread postby Scotkate » Fri Sep 16, 2011 12:00 am

I am getting a t*tt** and want to verify if the tr*nsl*t**n for "half of a whole. Forever one soul." is correct

Leth de dh' iomlan. Anam a-mhàin gu bràth.

Your help would be greatly appreciated

Thank you so much

Couldn't say whether it's right or wrong, but I can tell you that it doesn't rhyme....

Aon Anam gu bràth.

Leth de dh' iomlan is technically correct, but one would never say it like that. Just doesn't sound Gaelic.

I would personally recommend that you get this done professionally, as it's going to be on your body for a long time, so it should be right, or Gaelic speakers you meet in the future may (at best) give you strange looks! :priob:

Most of us on here are learners, and learners, however advanced, are not the best people to consult about permanent engravings. Even native-speakers are not all poetically inclined, so might give you something clumsy, and not all are accurate at spelling and grammar, as it's only recently that Gaelic has been taught in schools again.

You're probably unaware that there are several small agencies which will do a short phrase fairly cheaply but professionally, and by using them you'd be contributing to livelihoods of Gaelic-speakers, and helping to keep Gaelic in use professionally:

Good luck! :D

And you'll probably spend less on the tr*nsl*t**n than on getting inked, so all-in-all it's a bargain.

...any idea whats happened to Cainnt?

I think it detached itself from the rest of Sasainnt, crossed La Manche and joined up with Frainng...

The first I knew about it disappearing was when people started complaining that my links didn't work.

I think I heard mention of a guy at the BBC with the same name as the guy at Cainnt, so maybe he's working for Auntie now...?
