Re: Is mise

Chan eil mòran anns na tha thu air sgrìobhadh a tha fìor Bheurla! "Electron configuration"? "Atomic radius"? Agus tha thu a' smaointinn gum bi deagh Ghàidhlig ann don fheadhainn! Chan eil mi cinnteach idir idir gum bi.

Re: 'Let it Go' in Gaelic

Tha. OK - I s'pose you'd like me to tell you what...let's sèè now... "Rìoghachd" is gramatically feminine, so "na" (no apostrophe needed) causes no change in the following word. "at the helm" or whatever - "aig a' cheann", as it's governed by a preposition (aig). In Auld Gaelick, you might have put ...

Re: 'Let it Go' in Gaelic

Inntinneach. Ciamar a tha thu air "let it go" fhèin a dhèanamh? Tha mi air "Gad hi fynd" fhaicinn sa Chuimris: de mu "leigeadh às"? Chan eil mi cinnteach idir. ???

Re: Quantifiers

Sure about nominative? In Latin, it would probably be "accusative" (not that modern Gaelic really has such a case at all nowadays, though Irish still has a faint trace of it), Would the case not actually be "prepositional", i.e. what we usually call "dative"? This case too - apart from a few fossili...

Re: Gàidhlid san t-Òban?

Chan eil - chan eil mi eòlach air àiteachan mar sin san Òban. Feuch ris a' Ghàidhlig a th' agad a chleachdadh co-dhiù.

Re: Halò à Eadailt

Haidh Fhionnghal! - Hello Fenella! Uill, chan eil mi cinnteach air "Bianca" sa Ghàidhlig ach 's dòcha gun dèan seo an gnothach. Mhothaich mi nach eil duine sam bith air ceartachadh a dhèanamh air do Ghàidhlig. Am bu toil leat sin fhaicinn? I noticed that nobody's corrected your Gaelic. Would you lik...

Re: Forth Etymology

It has several other Gaelic names also. It's not at all clear what it might mean in English - and its current form (Forth) renders a Welsh/Brythonic provenance unlikely. If I mind right, Ptolemy listed it as "Bodotria" or some such. To the Votadini/Gododdin it seems to have been kent as "Iudeu" At o...

Re: Greetings!

All sound advice from GC. Perhaps my opinion about the relative ease of learning Spanish and Gaelic is coloured by the fact I speak Welsh and, as one might expect, there are some interesting parallels between Welsh grammar and Gaelic grammar. On the other hand, my mother spoke native Spanish, which ...

Re: Greetings!

I'm not at all convinced that Spanish is necessarily "easier" for an English speaker than Gaelic.. What IS true - particularly outwith Scotland - is that there's far more support available for learning Spanish than for learning Gaelic. But Spanish certainly has its "moments" - e.g. with the two verb...

Re: Greetings!

It might help us to know what the English version of your name is - what you've written is something vaguely like Murdo Rebecca Gillies, which can't be right! Also, most of us in Scotland these days are predominantly secular, but among the Christians we have widely differing positions, e.g. ranging ...
