Re: Bonjour from Paris

Fàilte! feasgar math = good afternoon/evening I try to learn Gàidhlig for my part but it seems hard for a French (latin) native ... You'll find it has advantages as well. For example, you aready know that everything is either masculine or feminine, unlike the poor Anglo-Saxons who think that they ca...

Halò a Raghnaid, fàilte dhan Fhòram! as Astràilia-a-Deas -> à Astràilia-a-Deas - às is only used before an article, eg às an taigh - from the house aig an clas -> aig a' chlas - there are too many rules related to this to be troubled about it after only three weeks (NB: you wrote aig an taigh correc...

Re: Top tips for new Gaelic learners?

San fharsaingeachd, ùraichidh iad sin gach latha o Dhiluain gu Dihaoine, ach dìochuimhnichidh iad sin a dhèanamh glè thric.

Uill ma tha an t-ionad-seallaidh agad nach eil ach dusan no 's dòcha fichead cànan Eòrpach ann, chan chuir mi nad aghaidh, ged a bhios mi an còmhnaidh a' dol :roll: nuair a chluinneas mi rudan mar "cha do choinnich mi duine sam bith a" no "tha iad uile ag aithneachadh" innse mu dheidhinn nàiseanan g...

Re: Fàilte dhan fhòram / Welcome to the forum

An d' fhuair thu, mar fhèin-ionnsaiche, far a tha thu ann am fichead mìos? Uill chan eil fhios 'am cia mheud giall a thuit air an làr as dèidh dha daoine sin a leughadh, ach thuit an tè agamsa gu dearbh - thug e dhomhsa 's dòcha sia bliadhna chun na h-ìre sin - ma tha mi ann mu thràth idir... :D Fài...

Gu dearbh, dìreach mar nach e an Nirribhis ach dualchainnt na Danmhairgise, an t-Slobhagais dualchainnt na Seiceise agus a' Bheurla Shasannach ach dualchainnt na h-Aimeireaganaise... co-dhiù no co-dheth, tha cùisean eadhon nas lugha na pàipear-bhòtaidh gun chànan Ceilteach ann an Èirinn, far nach fh...

Re: Ceannarcaich is Cogadh san Fhàsach

Ach tha trioblaidean air a bhith againne san Roinn-Eòrpa cuideachd ron 20 linn is gu h-àraidh aig toiseach na linne ud - an dà chogadh mòr a dh'adhbharaich sinn is a thug sinn dhan t-saoghal air fad.

Tha sin an crochadh air dè cho farsaing 's a tha am mìneachadh dhen "Bheurla Ghallta" agad. Agus dè an seòrsa a chleachdadh tu? Weegie? Lallans? Doric? Shetlandic? Agus tha sinn air ais aig a' chiad phost san t-sreath seo... :smeid:

Re: Possessive pronoun + article

I can't remember the fancy word either but I understand, that's what I tried to express by "idiomatic", although I realize that's not exactly the same thing. Anyway, I see the point, mòran taing!

Re: Carson a tha sibh ag ionnsachadh Gaidhlig?

B' e štengr a bha ann (chan eil facal Gàidhlig agam air, rudeigin coltach ri "raillery" sa Bheurla 's dòcha, chanainn gun do thig e bhon Ghearmailtis): fhuair mi TYG bho chuideigin aig an robh fios gu bheil ùidh ann an Alba agam, agus on a bha mi cinnteach gum b' e fealla-dhà is nach do chreid e gun...

Re: What does it mean? Various questions

A rèir nam fiaclairean agamsa chan ann "sguir a = sguir do" ach "sguir a = sguir de" a tha ann, ach chan eil fhios 'am a bheil "sguir o" ceart no taidhpo. NB: AG <> V :) An rud àbhaisteach: ainmear [gnìomhaireach] sa Ghàidhlig, gnìomhair sa Bheurla: sguir a mhaoineadh [AG] - cease to mourn [V]

Re: Possessive pronoun + article

Wow, so my subconscious isn't all that crazy after all - now I see it I'm pretty sure I've met with cùl mo dhùirn before. All right, so as rule of thumb, substitution in cases when the phrase is a "literal" compound, eg "my sole" bonn na coise -> bonn mo choise or "your collarbone" cnàimn an uga -> ...
