Most of them seem pretty clear (ea to i, ia to èi, etc). I'm just confused with the monosyllabic words containing broad vowels; how do you know which rule to apply when? Cas, long, làmh, and tòn are all monosyllabic nouns with a broad vowel yet one rule applies to the first two, and another rule to ...

Slenderisation

So I just encountered slenderisation for the first time and I'm a little confused about one thing; a' chas -> air a' chois vs. an làmh -> air an làimh Surely there is a rule as to when the broad vowel changes and when you simply add an i, but either it's been omitted from the TAIC lesson or I've sim...

Quick tip: you don't ask "how's you, rself?" in English, you ask "how's yourself?" Just like that: "Ciamar a tha thu fhèin?"

So are you still living in Montréal? To learn grammar and vocabulary, which way seems better to you? Did you take lessons? Yes, I'm still in Montreal. I haven't found any classes around here, so all my learning is being done online. I'm using TAIC for grammar/vocabulary, and Beag air Bheag for pron...

English mother tongue, French second language (I'm also from Montreal), and I'm actually just starting to learn Gàidhlig. Been at it only a week or so. Nevertheless, I'm finding more similarities with French than I am with English.

C'est bien ça, oui. En passant, j'ai trouvé que le gaélique a en fait plusieurs similarités avec le français. Plus qu'avec l'anglais, au moins.

Halò

Hello all,

I'm from Montreal, Canada and just started learning Gàidhlig via 'Beag air Bheag' a few days ago. 'fraid I won't be able to say anything interesting just yet, but I'm working on it :)
