Re: How do you say "Gaeilge" in Gàidhlig?

As far as I know, Irish is called "Gàidhlig na h-Èireann" or "Gàidhlig Èireannach" in Scottish Gaelic. To me, it's ridiculous to call it "Gaeilge" in Gàidhlig, since Gaeilge is an Irish word (just as it's ridiculous to call Scottish Gaelic "Gàidhlig" when speaking Irish)... In English, would one say...

Re: Pronunciation of words (esp. in Lewis Gaelic)

Ordered! thanks for telling me :)
Btw in songs, for the word càirdean, even in Uist Gaelic, I hear a kind of retroflex r followed by a palatalised d. Did you hear that too?

Re: Pronunciation of words (esp. in Lewis Gaelic)

Thanks, actually I know it makes retroflex consonants, but I wanted to know if in Lewis, people use depalatalized retroflex consonants where you'd except palatalized ones eg. bàirneach like bàrnach [ˈpaːɳɔχ], càirdean like càrdan [ˈkʰaːʈən] etc... :)

Re: Pronunciation of words (esp. in Lewis Gaelic)

Re: Stress in compound nouns

Cha d'fhuair mi an fhreagairt ma dheidhinn an prefix ann-! san fhacal "ann-stealladh" chan eil sèimheachadh chionn's nach sèimhichear "st-" uair sam bith... :(
ANN-stealladh neo ann-STEAlladh mar sin?

agus dè mar a fhuaimnichear "ann-" mar phrefix annashin? [aunˠ]? [anˠ]? [ənˠ]?

Re: Roinnt fhaclan ri 'n eadar-theangachadh

Tapadh leat!
(chan eil e mar sin ann an Gàidhlig na h-Èireann, sin an t-adhbhar a chuir mi 'n cheist! Canar "teach na bhfear mór" ach "teach na mbailte beaga" !)

Re: Roinnt fhaclan ri 'n eadar-theangachadh

Hallò a chàirdean! tha ceist ùr agam ma dheidhinn morfology nam buadhairean (anns a' ghinideach iolra): an abrar "cù nam balach mòr" (of the big boys) neo "cù nam balach mòra"? agus "taighean nam bailtean beaga" neo "taighean nam bailtean beag"? cha d'fhuair mi 'n fhreagairt anns na leabhraichean ag...

Stress in compound nouns

Hallò

I'd like to ask on what syllable does the stress fall in compound words like "fo-bhaile" "ann-stealladh", "luath-mharcachd " "làr-ìosal"...
when the first element is not a noun, in particular

New database of spoken native Breton - good model to follow!

Hallò Seo ceangal gu stòr-data ùr ma dheidhinn na Breatnaise dùthchasaiche : earrannan de chòmhraidhean le fileantaich, ann an diofar dhualchainntean, le tar-sgrìobhaidhean agus le eadar-theangachadh (ann am Fraingis a-mhàin a-nis, gabhaibh mo leisgeul).

Re: Roinnt fhaclan ri 'n eadar-theangachadh

An urrainn do dhaoine na faclan sin a dhearbhadh neo faclan eile a mholadh, agus na faclan eile a dh'eadar-theangachadh? :) oir chan eil iad uile ann, ar leam :)
