Unlike in other languages, the Gael puts him/herself usually first, so: Bidh m' athair agus mo mhàthair agus mi-fhèin Bidh mi fhèin, m' athair agus mo mhàthair But Gaels like agus more than anglophones like and : <b>Bidh mi-fhéin agus m' athair agus mo mhàthair.</b> NB: Yes, a lot of Gaels are now ...

Found this on the Gaelic-L archives from Caoimhin at the SMO [GA] Thubhairt Sia\n Leitch: > > "Bidh mi a' dol dhan dannsadh a-nochd." > > Chan eil mi tuigsinn "dhan dannsadh". An urrainn duine sam bith mhineachadh? "dhan" = "don" = "do" + "an" Bidh cuid de dhaoine (m.e. Uìstich?) ag radh "don", agus...

But, with bidh me... i still don't understand. Why not just say " Tha mi a' snamh a h-uile madainn ". That makes perfect sense too? No, it doesn't make sense. Tha mi a' snamh means "I am swimming". You wouldn't say "I am swimming every morning" in English, would you? Did you do any other languages ...

dhan = gu + the article So if the place is referred to as An , Am or A' {place}, the gu and the an become dhan or don. The classic example is Scottish towns: Fort William = An Gearasdan (article) Tha mi a' dol dhan Ghearasdan. Inverness = Inbhir Nis (no article) Tha mi a' dol gu Inbhir Nis. What do ...

A bheil sibh ag iarraidh rudeigin a sgrìobhaidh?

´S ann an ath mhios a tha "NaNoWriMo" -- a' Mhios (eadar-)Naiseanta de Ùr-sgeulan sgrìobhaidh. Tha dhith oirbh air leth-cheud mìle faclan eadar a' chiad lath 's an latha mu dheireadh den Samhain.

Yup. When I caught myself saying mòran , I figured it was time to stop writing mòran . I've been using both accents ever since. As an academic (part-time) and a pedagogue, and a learner of Gaelic, I loathe and detest the Exam Board for their incomprehensible, arbitrary and complete unexplained decis...

Thalla gu taigh na galla! (Have I got my article/genitive right?)

Literally: Go to the bitch's house.
Roughly equivalent to "get lost!"/"get tae f***!"

It's very normal, but it's a heck of a lot better if you can speak and listen better than you can read and write, so I would advise you to go for it. Talk as much as you can and you'll learn both quicker and better.
