Woohoo!!! :coimp:
Dh'obraich e !!! Bha mi a' coimhead air Air an Rathad an-dràsda. Mòran taing airson a' fiosrachaidh Ackerbeltz.
Cha robh maille idir ann ach 's docha gu bheil sin a' crochadh air àm an latha neo air cho mheud daoine a th' air an t-siostam.

Re: Faclan doirbh

From MacBain's
gais - a torrent , surfeit; from English gush? Perhaps gaisean is the plural
From MacFarlane's
sginn - va. and vn. squeeze or force out, protrude, gush out
Hope this helps.

Obh! Obh!

Re: What Made You Want To Learn Gàidhlig?

Rinn mi an Cùrsa Inntrigidh an-uiridh agus ged a tha e math, bi air do ullachadh, tha e gu ma luath.

I did an Cùrsa Inntrigidh last year and though it's good, be prepared, it's pretty fast paced. :tac:

Re: What Made You Want To Learn Gàidhlig?

Hi GC. Dè tha dol sa Cholaiste? :smeid:
"luath" is often used for "soon". Thig sin gu luath - That will come quickly (soon) or Thig sin luath gu leòr - That will come quick enough. :)

Re: Ceistean: TYG

Anns na seann leabhraichean agam, 's àbhaist d' thug agus d' thuirt a bhios annta, am measg eile, agus cha do thuig mi sin idir ann an aon eiseimpleir ('s docha gur e sgrìobhainn foirmeil a th' ann). Chan eil tug no dug idir ann. Tha mi ag aideachadh gur e duine seann fhasanta a th' annam, ach b' fh...
