Gabhaibh mo leisgeul, ach ma tha MP3 fireannta chanainn "tha..... air mar tha." Ach ma tha MP3 boireannta, chanainn "tha ....oirre mar tha." Tha mi a'smaoineachadh gur e fireannta a th'ann an MP3. Pardon me, but if MP3 is masculine I'd say ............ But if MP3 is feminine I'd say.......... I thin...

Eadar dà sgeul, tha ceist agam: Ciamar a dh'fhuaimhnicheas mi an "eu" anns an fhacal "euslaint"? A rèir Robert C. Owen tha an "eu" ann an euslaint agus ann an sgeul an aon rud, ach dh'èisd mi ri Ruairidh MacIlleathain agus tha e ag ràdh "eu" mar "ay", (way), mar sin tha an "eu" an aon rud ann am "f...

Re: a bheil fhios aig duine..?

mìosan air ais, chuala mi abairt beag snog - rudeigin mar "'s fhearr suilean caraid na sgàthan" ach chan eil cuimhne agam buileach. an e sin e? a bheil rudeigin coltach ri sin ann? no a bheil mi dìreach a' dèanamh stuth suas? :?

Hi Eideard, I would be inclined to use 'nan' & 'nam'. The problem here for Doyle is that it is better for him to consult a native speaker. There is often a more natural way of saying somthing that learners might not have the full grasp of. Do you use bidh or bithidh for example. 'Boys will be boys'...

Re: Boys will be Boys

How do I say "boys will be boys" in Scottish Gaelic. The two most common Gaelic words for boys are gillean and balaich. For "Boys will be boys" I would say "Bithidh gillean na ghillean" or "Bithidh balaich na bhalaich." You can also substitute "bidh" for "bithidh" in these phrases, depending on how...

Hallo a Thoaist,

Failte chun an Fòram Gàidhlig. An robh thu aig a' bhùth obrach "Canan agus Òran" Disathairne? Bha mi ann agus bha an là sgoinneil, mar as àbhaist.

Welcome to the Gaelic Forum. Were you at the "Canan agus Òran" workshop on Saturday. I was there and the day was terrific, as usual.

I've seldom, if ever seen vocative used with a name which is followed by "a charaid", I know little about grammar but I think its the 'a charaid' that contains the vocative. I have had correspondence addressed to me as A Choinnich chòir (I think) which seems spot on.... I'm not sure what you mean b...

Don't forget the vocative when you're addressing someone:
