Re: Negative of "Is"

Nach tusa Vinodh? An tusa Iain?
Why is it "tusa" instead of "thusa" ?
The verb "is" likes to hide, doesn't it :lol:
Tha gu dearbh :D

Negative of "Is"

Hi,

Verb constructions with "Tha" can be negated with "Chan eil". I was wondering what is the negative of the verb form "is".

Consider this:

I am Indian - 'S e Innseanach a tha annam
I am Vinodh - 'S mise Vinodh

How do you say the following:

I am not English
I am not John

Bha mi a' dol do Dun De a bhith a' ceannach deise an-diugh. Bha mi a' tilleadh do Cill Rimhinn air an fheasgar. Tha an t-uisge an-seo. Chan eil mi a' dol a-mach. Tha mi ag òl leann a-staigh a-nis :) I went to Dundee to buy a suit today. I returned to St Andrews in the afternoon. It is raining here. ...

Re: Pronunciation of Consonants in Gaelic

Glè inntinneach - very interesting. Yes - I can assure you that your Gaelic is appalling! But no matter - it will get better with practice. :roll: I suppose :priob:. When you try to compose complex sentences, while you are still learning basic grammar, the result should be terrible ! This, indeed, ...
