Lus a' chrom-chinn: stress?

If there’s a hyphen, that indicates the stress shifts to the second word.

ceist air "gus / in order to"

Got it — never occurred to me but we have that idiomatic use of 'till' in Glaswegian too (sure it's common throughout Scotland) so that makes sense.

ceist air "gus / in order to"

Tapadh leat, sin na bha mi a' faireachdainn mu dheidhinn nan seantansan dearga. Ach mar sin — rud eile a bha mi a' faighneachd — am bi, can, "…gus an robh iad toilichte" ag obair mar an dà chuid "…until they were happy" *agus* "…in order that they were happy" , no dìrea...

Learning vocab, system? Is there one?

Does Anyone Here Speak Gàidhlig?

A bheil thu ag ràgh nach bi "'s urrainn dhomh Gàidhlig a bhruidhinn" ag obair idir, no gun crochadh e air a' cho-theacsa?

m.e. Dè mu dheidhinn…

"B' urrainn dhomh Gàidhlig a bhruidhinn nan robh i agam, ach chan eil." ?

Tha sin cgl, nach eil?
