Chanainn gur e smùid a' Ghàidhlig air "smog", ged a tha i a' ciallachadh rudan eile cuideachd.

Cha robh caomhnadh air canabhas

Saoil a bheil sibh eòlach air a' ghnàth-fhacal seo? B' àbhaist gun robh airgead "pàipeir" air a dhèanamh de chanabhas, agus mar sin, gu sìmplidh 's e dòigh eile a bha seo air "Cha robh caomhnadh air cosgais" a ràdh. No expense was spared Chanadh seo, mar eisimpleir, a thaobh cèil...

Dalmatach / Dalmataich

Dè am fuaimneachadh Gàidhlig a b' fheàrr air Dalmation, mar ghnè coin?
