Re: Best tr*nsl*t**n of "for"

Thanks, Faoileag!

I didn't realize the genitive was required after "airson".

Best tr*nsl*t**n of "for"

Hello All, I am in the process of trying to tr*nsl*t* a short 'grace' that is used here in the US among Boy Scouts. It's known as the "Philmont Grace", named after the Philmont Scout Reservation in New Mexico. The grace is rather simple: For food, for raiment, for life, for opportunity, for friendsh...

Quick Phrase

How would one say "celebration" in Gaelic? More so, if one wanted to say something like Fall Celebration would the contruction be (in English) "Celebration of Fall", i.e. the word celebration followed by the noun in the genitive case (or do you need the def. art. "na" as well)?

Thanks!

Quick Pronunciation

I'm trying to ascertain the correct pronunciation of the word for 'heather' - Fraoch. Unfortunatley it seems I'm getting a lot of Irish variations but not Gaelic. It's basically the 'ao' combination that's throwing me off in Gaelic (I'm more familiar with the Irish pronunciation).

Thanks!

The "original" I posted was in Irish. I was looking for the Scots version/tr*nsl*t**n.

Urgent t*ns Request

Hello all, I am hoping someone can provide me with a tr*nsl*t**n of the phrase "Until you (pl) meet again under the Lantern" - it is for a eulogy for a friend's father who is a Macfarlane, hence the reference to the 'lantern' (i.e. Macfarlane's lantern - a local term for the full moon). Thanks very ...
