Re: Gaelic conversation, Perth City Centre

THE ABOVE IS NO LONGER RUNNING DUE TO POOR TURNOUT.

However, every second Saturday at 11am a group of us meet at Perth Theatre (Red Rooms), on the High Street.
We are meeting today 8th June, so will be meeting again on the 22nd and so on.

Re: Skype contact and names

'do' no 'airson'?

Chunna' mi "Ceartas airson na Gàidhlig" air a' phrofile Facebook aig Am Buidheann Dubh. Nach bu chòir dha bhith "Ceartas don a' Ghàidhlig"? No a bheil "Ceartas airson na Gàidhlig" ceart?

Re: Daoine le Gàidhlig bho thùs

In what way exactly is that trying to be polite? In some countries it's impolite to finish a plate of food. In some countries it's impolite not to. In some countries it's impolite to give a friend's wife a kiss on the cheek. In some countries it's impolite not to. You'll never succeed at learning a...

Re: Daoine le Gàidhlig bho thùs

now that you bring it up, would it really kill native speakers to speak Gaelic when the conversation is initiated in Gaelic. It's not like they need to practice their English! They're trying to be polite. Your reaction doesn't seem to afford them the same courtesy. In what way exactly is that tryin...

Re: Daoine le Gàidhlig bho thùs

A Ghordon, chan e siud am puing a bh'agam idir, tha mi tuigsinn gum bi fileantaich ag atharachadh bho Beurla gu Gàidhlig nuair a tha iad a' bruidhinn, anns an aon sheantans aig amannan, 's e sin code-switching nach e? Agus tha mi den bheachd nach eil sian sam bith ceàrr air sin, mar a thuirt thu fhé...

Daoine le Gàidhlig bho thùs

Dè is coireach nach bi tòrr dhaoine (aig a bheil a' Ghàidhlig bho thùs) a' cleachdadh an cànan còmhla ri chèile? Chan urra' dhomh thuigsinn idir, feumaidh gu bheil e nas fhasa dhaibh a bhith a' bruidhinn sa chànan aca fhèin nach eil? Agus na inns dhomh nach eil seo cumanta, oir tha fhios a'm nach e ...

Re: rud beag troimh-chéile

Mòran taing a Sheonaidh, ged 's nach eil an sentence a' dèanamh ciall dhomh fhathast. Literally 'I don't know what's nagging/complainging on your own' or some thing along those lines, but is there a corresponding English idiom or phrase? Cuideachd, thèid an slender R chleachdadh gu laidir ann an Uib...

rud beag troimh-chéile

Mu mhìos no dha air ais bha mi a' bruidhinn ri tè 's aithne dhomh aig a bheil a' Ghàidhlig nuair a bha mi a' faighinn trèan a Dhùn Dèagh. Bidh mi ga tuigsinn most of the time, ach thuirt i rudeigin nach b' urrainn dhomh a thuigsinn idir idir: "Chan eil fhios a'm dè tha gearrainn aig do thòin [no 'sh...

'S ann ann an Uibhist a thòisich mi na Gàidhlig a ionnsachadh dà bhliadhna air ais, ach cha do dh'ionnsich mi ach Gàidhlig bhunaiteach anna shin.
