mo ghoal, mo ghràdh

I am finding both these online as translations of "My love." Any opinions as to which is more correct, or if they're equally correct, what is the difference between them? Thank you.

Medieval Gaelic

Does anyone know if there are any internet resources to help me learn a little about the medieval Gaelic language? I'm assuming that just like medieval and modern English, there are quite a few differences. If anyone knows a good resource or ten, thank you very much!

Is there a way to express the equivalent thought? Trust yourself? Trust your instincts?

Am I saying this right?

A friend asked how to say "Always trust your gut."

How is that? Thanks.

Tha mi air chrith le fuachd. Tha i fuar taobh a-muigh. Tha mi an-drasta geansaidh blàth a chuir. I am shivering with cold. It is cold outside. I just now put on a warm jumper. I can't get at my books for reference now. I'm pretty sure I butchered that last sentence and possibly spelling of geansaidh...

Tha mi... bi ga lathadh. Tha e fuar an taobh. I am shivering with cold. It is cold outside. :naire: I'm relying on the dictionary for some vocabulary. I've been studying the -ing forms with my tyg dictionary, but it doesn't cover shivering. :naire: And did I use the correct form of outside for this ...

thanks for clarifying, Niall. I thought she was saying that was the definition, rather than that is the tr*nsl*t**n. My mistake. Please remember I'm only three months into this, and comparing it to what I know of English and German.

Bha mi stèidhich mòran leabhraichean a' Gàidhlig aig googlebooks.


I found more books in Gaelic at Googlebooks.

I found a couple written entirely in Gaelic, one of poetry which could be downloaded for free, plus others that had passages of Gaelic along with their translations.

So it appears to me they are saying the tr*nsl***** of 'draw' is 'dèan dealbh.' :? That's what the dictionary entry will look like - you don't say "draw" literally, you say "make a picture", and that's what the gammar will make of it: Tha mi a' dèanamh dealbh - I am making a pic...
