A chàirdean, I created an online app that gives the pronunciation of Scottish Gaelic words, which I think is the first one of its kind. The link is https://gaelphon.gaelictools.com/ .

Weil es das nicht gab, habe ich es einfach selbst gema...

Re: Kindle:Faclairean ùr/Neue Wörterbücher/New dicts

Chan eil e stèidhichte air faclair sònraichte air bith, 's ann mi fhìn a rinn e. Dìreach an roghadh de cheann-fhaclan, tha e stèidhichte air an fhaclair Cornish/English aig an fhoillsichear Yoran Embanner (bha mi an dùil gum biodh m'fhaclair fhèin ann an sreath de mìon-fhaclairean aig Yoran Embanner...

If the latter, then repetition of a Gaelic "Infinitive" doesn't make it better - it can only be that English grammar categor...

Coimhead, sgrìobhad etc in the examples are verbal nouns, whi...

Is truagh nach fhaigh a' mhòr-chuid de dhaoine e: chan fhaighear e tro Freeview (DVB-T). Mar sin, mura bheil truinnsear grànnda saideil agad no mura pàigh thu Rupert M. no Sir Richard B. airson sin, bi thu ann's a' "gleann nan aineolach".
