Re: Dè tha thu a' dèanamh? / What are you doing?

Seadh, 's e latha brèagha a th'ann an-diugh! Beagan gaothach, 's dòcha, ach grianach agus chan eil ro theth. An-diugh mharchadh mi an baidhseagal agam dhan phàirc, shuidh mi sìos fo chraobh, agus leugh mi Na Pàipearan Fheadaraileach agus Sophocles. Tha mi a' dol gu Wyoming ann an cola-deug airson pr...

Re: Noun genders

Tapadh leat a-rithist, a Sheonaidh. :priob:

Any idea where I might get access to BBC Alba? I can't watch programs from the website because I live in the States.

Re: Dè tha thu a' dèanamh? / What are you doing?

An-diugh tha i glè glè theth. Cha robh i cho dona anns a' mhadainn, ach bha mi a' coiseachd a-muigh an-dràsta agus cha robh i tlachdmhor idir. Ro bhruthainneach. 'S e sin an samhradh ann an Chicago! A-nis tha mi anns an taigh, ag èisteachd ri Radio nan Gàidheal. Today it's very, very hot. It wasn't ...

Re: Hàlo!

Bu toigh leam gu mòr BBC Alba a choimhead, ach chan urrain dhomh ga fhaighinn idir anns na Stàitean. :( Ach tha Radio nan Gàidheal agam air loidhne.

I'd very much like to watch BBC Alba, but I can't get it at all in the States. But I do have Radio nan Gàidheal online.

Re: Noun genders

Interesting. Yes, living in Chicago I have to rely on my Skype friends and Radio nan Gàidheal for listening, though I could try harder at that. And I have been writing adjectives on my flashcards--I figured that would be useful. Guess I'll just keep plugging away! Mòran taing airson an comhairle.

Noun genders

The past couple weeks I've been doing a more intensive study of noun genders and cases, which has been a long time coming. To help myself out I've been making flash cards, writing down the noun, its gender, and then its most common case forms--nominative singular, nominative plural, genitive, and da...

Re: Dè tha thu a' dèanamh? / What are you doing?

An-dràsta, tha mi a' cluich leis an coineanach agam. 'S e Hickory an t-ainm a th'air. Tha bian liath agus geal aige. 'S toigh leis itheadh feur, curranan, agus rèisiedean. Nuair a cluich mi leis, tha mi a' cuireadh mi bogsaichean, le tuill a bha air geàrradh a-mach dhiubh, air an làr, agus tha e a' ...

Fàilte dhan Fhòram, Fhionnlaigh! Cuin' a thòisich thu Gàidhlig a dh'ionnsachadh?

Welcome to the Forum, Finlay! When did you start learning Gaelic?

I thought so too, but just recently I was looking more into noun genders, and apparently nominative feminine nouns don't have an t- after all...? Just an. That's what all my books seem to say. Can someone confirm this?

Re: Dè tha thu a' dèanamh? / What are you doing?

Bha mise anns na "Badlands" (na Tìrean Dona, 's dòcha?), trì no dhà bliadhna air ais. Bha sinn a' dèanamh tadhal air Beann Rushmore nuair a bha sinn ann. Bha an aimsir uabhasach teth. Cuin' an robh thusa ann, a Chòseim? I was in the Badlands two or three years ago. We visited Mount Rushmore while we...

Tha mi 'n dòchas gum bi turas iongantach agad, a Choiseim! :D Anns an t-Iuchar, bidh mise a' dol gu Wyoming...chan e Alba a th'ann, ach tha e glè bhrèagha cuideachd. Tha gaol agam air na beanntannan. Tha beanntannan nas mòtha aig Wyoming na aig Alba, co-dhiù! :priob: I hope you have a wonderful time...

Tapadh leat. :) Tha fios aig mo phiuthar air beagan abairtean Gàidhlig, ach 's e sin a h-uile. Dh'ionnsaich i an t-òran air chluais, a mhòrchuid. Bu toigh leam tuilleadh ga teagasg, ach tha sinn gu tric trang. Thank you. My sister knows a few Gaelic phrases, but that's all. She learned the song most...

Re: Dè tha thu a' dèanamh? / What are you doing?

Seo bhidio ùr a rinn mi an-dè! 'S e mi fhìn is mo phiuthar a th'ann a' seinn "An Cluinn Thu Mi, Mo Nighean Donn."

Here's a new video I made yesterday! It's me and my sister singing "Will You Hear Me, My Brown-Haired Girl."
