Help me with a phrase, I know how to say it, I know the meaning, but i don’t know how to write it!

Pronunciation is something like: Shin akuht eh (in English spelling) but in colloquial speech the "sin (shin)" is often lenited and pronounced "Hin". This is pelled Shin agad e! (which is not pronounced like "sh" in English)...

Am Faclair Beag - Faclan a dh'fhaodadh cur ann

Sè.
Is ann eadar 1917 is 1918 a chaidh Deò Ghrèine XIII fhoillseachadh, mar sin, 's fheudar gun robh e na sheann aois nuair a sgrìobh e am pìos air a bheil mi mach. Tha e a' dèanamh tuairisgeul de Ghleann na h-Eilde - sin far a bheil an rosgrann sin a' nochdadh.

Am Faclair Beag - Faclan a dh'fhaodadh cur ann

A' cur na srathrach air a' ghearran ceàrr

Is fhada on uair sin. Dè ur cor? Tha mi ann an-dràsta gus ràdh beag eile a thoirt dhuibh. Laigh mo shùil air ann an seann iris Ghàidhlig, agus is e seo gnàth-fhacal a dh'fhaodadh a bhith air chuimhne ann am bad-eigin fhathast ach cha chuirinn geall air. Is e an tuiseal ginideach de srathair a th' an...

Using Ann for Exists

Ah I see, but in that case there is still something odd about it. I think because it lacks a time phrase, such as an-diugh It's a lovely day in Biggar would more likely be expressed like this : Tha latha brèagha ann am Biggar an-diugh. If you put an-diugh after it, then that sentence would feel less...

uamhraidh (fearful / gloomy)

Okay, thanks. Where does uaghaidh come from, as it’s a form of uamh in some dialects.

Using Ann for Exists

'S e sìde mhath an-còmhnaidh a th' ann and 'S e sìde mhath an-còmhnaidh a th' ann am Biggar and 'S e sìde mhath a th' ann am Biggar (Biggar is good weather) are all unnatural contextually and wouldn't be said or written. 'S e ... a th' ann is used to DEFINE something with emphasis, i.e. to say what...

A' seotadh agus a' tapachadh

Laigh mo shùil air deagh abairt mu bhith a' sgrùdadh 's a' seòrsachadh tagraichean (candidates) airson a' phoileis. Bhon Dòrnaidh, sa Mhormhaich (Gleann Seile)- DASG : a’ seòrsadh nan uan.

uamhraidh (fearful / gloomy)

"àite uamhraidh" sounds fine for "a gloomy fearful place" as far as I can tell - though I am aware of examples using "aognaidh" for gloomy, rather than "uamhraidh". I think it would work fine for a collocation like: "àite uamhraidh, uaigneach"* As Dw...
