Re: Ciamar a tha an t-sìde / How's the weather?

Bha i uabhasach fliuch agus garbh sa gheamhradh ann an Fìobha. 'Nise tha i grianach, fa dheòigh! Agus tha i tlàth a-nis cuideachd. :)

It was terribly wet and windy in winter in Fife. Now it's sunny, finally! And it's mild now too. :)

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

Haló, ciamar a tha sibh? Tha mi trang - chan eil mi a' dèanamh Gàidhlig gu tric. Ach, tha mi a' leughadh eachdraidh na h-Alba meadhan-aoiseil, agus tha faclan ann an Sean-Gaelige. Tha mi gan tuigsinn uaireannan. :) Hey, how are you guys all doing? I am busy - I don't do Gaelic very often. However, I...

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

'S e Là na Taingealachd a th'ann an-diugh! :) Bidh sinn ag ithe 'stuffing', buntàta pronn, fraochain, céic ùbhlan, agus mo phàranthan bidh ag ithe pulaidh. (Chan eil mi agus mo phiuthar ag ithe feòil.) Today is Thanksgiving! We'll be eating stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberries, apple cake, and my ...

Bidh i grianach ann an Cill Rìmhinn, mar is trice. ;)

It's more or less always sunny in St Andrews.

Fàilte! :) You can always post in the bilingual section if you're more comfortable at first posting in English alongside Gaelic. :)

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

Okay, my teacher grew up speaking Gaelic in Harris and is about 70 and she uses trang for people, so I'm assuming it's just standard usage now!

Thanks for the corrections!

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

Chan eil mi a' sgioblachadh an-diugh, ach bidh mi a' dèanamh taigh-nigheachain. Bha mi ro thrang as ùr. Thòisich a' bhliadhna acadeimigeach agus bha mòran tachartasan ann. Thòisich na clasaichean an-dé, fa dheòigh! Tha mi a' leughadh eachdraidh a' Charlemagne agus an t-spioradalachd manaich meadhan-...

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

Okay, I was going for the sense of "I am not good at dancing but I will dance anyway". I think my teacher from Harris uses "Tha mi a'dol a-mach a-nochd" but I'm not sure. Interesting how each language has different boundaries for the future tense -- Spanish for example has a much...

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

Doesn't "Cha bhi mi a' dannsa" mean "I won't dance"? And is it not acceptable to use "tha" for the near future?
