Re: Help required

If it's the service that's meant, and this is usually what's on logos or written on vehicles, you could go for seirbheis plèana-eiridinn - this means medical-plane service, and uses an existing term for an air ambulance, though that assumes planes. or seirbheis-eiridinn adhair - this means air medic...

Is fìor mhath a rinn thu mar-thà leis do chuid fèin-ionnsachaidh, agus tha mi cinnteach gum bi sinn a' cluinntinn barrachd bhuat an seo san àm ri teachd. :-)

Re: Cò leis a tha sibh a' bruidhinn Gàidhlig? (Who do you speak Gaelic with?)

Tha mise gu math fortanach is cothroman agam a bhith a' bruidhinn Gàidhlig gu cunbhalach, air loidhne co-dhiù. Leis gu bheil mi a' teagasg fhathast (air loidhne), bidh mi a' bruidhinn ris na h-oileanaich agam (cuid dhiubh aig ìre mhath), agus tha mi fhìn ann am buidheann-chòmhraidh neo-fhoirmeil air...

Re: Halo

Fàilte bhuamsa cuideachd! :D Welcome from me too! Just try things out and ask for help whenever you want. Everyone learns in their own way and at their own pace. We have a recent short thread where some learners have discussed how they do it (or did it!): https://www.foramnagaidhlig.net/foram/viewto...

Re: Fàilte dhan fhòram / Welcome to the forum

An aon rud an seo, ach feumaidh sinne fuireach dà mheatair bho chèile, ann am bùithtean agus ciudhan cuideachd. Faodaidh sinn cuairt a ghabhail bhon taigh (chan ann sa chàr) aon turas gach latha, gus eacarsaich fhaighinn. Nì mi sin! :-) Tha an t-sìde an seo brèagha cuideachd, grianach is tioram (ged...

Re: matamataig---àireamheachd

Living in a place is not a habitual action. You don't do it again and again. That's why it's unlikely to be used in the future tense when you mean the present. Your examples are fine - they ARE repeated actions. Habits, rather than ongoing states. A bheil thu a' fuireach an seo? covers now and in ge...

Re: Help with a Sentence for a Poem I'm Writing

fuilich, a' fuileachadh is more what a doctor would do - draw blood, take blood from someone, i.e. used transitively.

If you don't like dòrtadh, what about sìl, a' sìleadh? Oooze, trickle, flow.
