A rèir an òrdugh, "Meagsago" amsaa, ach cha toil leam sin, air sgàth 's nach bi na M...aich a' cleachdadh "cs" no "gs" airson "x" ann an "Mexico" - tha i coltach ri "j" san Spàinnis. Dè mu dheidhinn "Mechiogo", "Mechigeanach" amsaa?

According to the Holy Writ of Goc, "Meagsago" etc, but that doesn't please me, on the grounds that the M..icans don't use "cs" or "gs" for the "x" in "Mexico" - it's like "j" in Spanish. What about "Mechiogo", "Mechigeanach" etc?

Cha bhi - without the th.

Dè dh'itheas tu?

What do you eat?

An ith thu aran?

Do you eat bread?

Tha an t-acras orm an-dràsda, agus tha mi a' dol a dh'ithe aran, ìm 's càise agus a dh'òl cupa cofaidh.

I'm hungry now, and I'm going to eat bread, butter and cheese and to drink a cup of coffee.

Carson an do leugh mi seo, tha an t-acras orm a-nis!

Why did I read this, I am hungry now.

Dh'ith mi mu thràth, tha mi ag ithe: ith is the verb, ithe the verbal noun.

Tapadh leat!

Cha do dh'ith cus a-nochd, cha robh mòran an t-acras orm.

's dòcha gum bidh ag ithe nas anmoiche!

Thanks!

I didn't eat too much tonight, i wasn't very hungry!

Maybe, i'll eat later.

Merci!

Dh'ith mi biadh Iapanach a-nochd. Bha e uabhasach blasta!
I ate Japanese food tonight. It was very tasty

Be careful not to forget the mi:

Cha do dh'ith mi cus a-nochd
's dòcha gum bidh mi ag ithe nas anmoiche!

You don't need the article after mòran, but you do need the genitive:
cha robh mòran acrais orm.
cha robh an t-acras orm.
cha robh an t-acras orm gu mòr.

Tha thu a' dèanamh glè mhath, cum ort! :D

Dh'ith mi biadh lapanach cuideachd, chaidh sinn ann taigh-bìdh aig meadhan latha. Dh'ith mi cus mar muc. Chan eil mòran acrais orm a-nis.

I ate japanese food too. We went in a restaurant at midday. I ate too much like a pig. I am not much hungry now.

Tapadh leat!

Tha mi a'dol leat! Chan e muc a th'annam! Tha mise fortanach, nach eil?

Dh'ith sinn anns an taigh-dhealbh. Chi sinn air am film Thorr. Coisichidh e ann deich mionaidean.

I agree with you. I am not a pig. Am not lucky?

We ate in the cinéma. We Will see the movie Thorr! It Will be Begin in 10 minutes.

Did you like the film?

Bha mi ag òl copan de chofaidh. Chan eil mi ag ithe an-dràsta. :)

I was drinking a cup of coffee. I'm not eating right now.

Dh'ithe mi min-choirce air a madainn.

I ate oatmeal this morning.

Have I said that correctly?
