Dalmatach / Dalmataich

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

Thug mi an aire gur e Dalmatách sa Ghaeilge.

cnàiseadh

cnàiseadh - grinding teeth


An do leugh no an cuala duine am facal "cnàiseadh"? Tha "cnuasadh is cnàiseadh" agam air "chewing and grinding" (teeth) ach chan fhaigh mi lorg air cnàiseadh sna faclairean.

Faclan neònach

B' fhiach sùil a thoirt anns an leabhar DMC, agus na "faclan neònach" a thogail à sin cuideachd. Tha an t-uabhas ann dhiubh.

Faclan ùra : Ràitheachan

A bheil a leithid ann, iris a thig a-mach gach latha? Nach fhaighear irisean làitheil, quotidiens , san Fhraing, mar eisimpleir? Co-dhiù, tapadh leibh 'son ur beachdan. San dol seachad, an e "lathachan" a b' fheàrr seach "làitheachan", nam biodh a leithid ann? mìosachan ràitheachan (bho ràith) ach ...

Faclan ùra : Ràitheachan

Tha ràitheachan againn anns a' Ghàidhlig air quarterly magazine.

Chan eil "làitheachan" sna faclairean, ach saoilidh mi gun dèanadh e an gnothach mar eadar-theangachadh air "daily magazine", seach dìreach "iris làitheil" a bhith againn.

'S math a bhith smaoineachadh gu saorsneil air na rudan seo.

Dè am foileadh a th' air?

A bheil foileadh ort an-diugh? Tha mi an dòchas nach eil oir 's e an-diugh Didòmhnaich dhomhsa agus mura bheil cothrom agad fois a ghabhail air aon latha den t-seachdain, mo thruaighe thusa! Seo facal nach eil cho cumanta ga chluinntinn cho fad 's as aithne dhomh, ach theagamh nach eil croitear no b...

Re: Verbal nouns and inversion

Ronald Black's "Cothrom Ionnsachaidh" will give you an in-depth explanation of inversion in layman's terms as well as with all the grammatical jargon.

Re: Le / leis before gach

Ok, well fair points. I think the examples with "le gach dùrachd" show a change in the language register and informal, spoken Gaelic being used in formal, written correspondence. Whether that is what you describe above, I'm not too sure. Emails are by their nature less formal, whereas taking the tim...

Re: Le / leis before gach

all living languages are in a constant state of flux and the internal grammar of each generation differs slightly from one to the next. Question, akerbeltz. There are changes in the internal grammar of each generation because language is in a constant state of flux and there are changes in the inte...

Re: Le / leis before gach

If there was no correct grammar, there would be no correct grammar books. (incorrect grammar here) We're not talking about "Linguistically acceptable" or "Linguistically unacceptable", we're just talking about what is correct grammar and what isn't. You can say whatever you like and most times it wi...
