Ciamar a tha an t-sìde / How's the weather?

Tha i gu math fuar an-seo; 's dòcha nach bi samhradh air tighinn idir am bliadhna. :(

It's rather cold here; perhaps the summer will not come this year at all.

Am Bìoball Gàidhlig 1992

I do like this structure with "do" because it's dative, and so it is partly similar to the "дательный самостоятельный" (independent dative) in Church Slavonic, i.e. (past participle + subject) in dative = adverbial phrase: И влезшу ему в корабль, по нем идоша ученицы его (Matthew...

Am Bìoball Gàidhlig 1992

I understand now; it's like "an dèidh do X" [+ object] + verbal noun. This "air" = "an dèidh". So, it seems that my questions: Is it very old-fasioned? Is it quite understandable now or not? are unswered. Yes, it is very old-fasioned and not very easy understandable now...

Am Bìoball Gàidhlig 1992

O, no. I think it's not the past tense "do".
Here it's quite clear:
Agus air dha breith air a làimh dheis, thog e suas e (3:7)
Air dhaibh a bhith fo dhoilgheas gu robh iad a’ teagasg an t‑sluaigh (4:2)
Agus air dhaibh iadsan a chur anns a’ mheadhon, dh’fheòraich iad (4:7)

Am Bìoball Gàidhlig 1992

Mòran taing! It's more interesting than I thought. ...it does not mean "Peter can look". It really is the past tense do before the name. Yes, I didn't think that it was "can". Is is possible to read anywhere about it? I mean "do" of the past tense not before the verb.

Am Bìoball Gàidhlig 1992

It's quite different construction, I think: "air do Pheadar sealltainn" vs "nuair a bha Peadar air sealltainn". Yes, there is 'air' in both cases... It seems that "air do X sealltainn" is rather similar to "is urrainn do X sealltainn" etc, only "air"...

Tha mi a' leughadh Gnìomharan nan Abstol an-seo Agus air do Pheadar sealltainn gu geur air, maille ri Eòin, thubhairt e, Amhairc oirnne (3:4) And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.” Agus air dha breith air a làimh dheis, thog e suas e (3:7) And he took him by the right hand ...

Ciamar a tha an t-sìde / How's the weather?

Glè mhath! Tha thu soirbh-dhùileach gu dearbh, fhaoileag chòir!
Agus tha dùil agam gun tig an samhradh mu dheireadh thall.
:)
Good! You are really optimistic, dear faoileag!
And I hope that the summer will come after all.

Ciamar a tha an t-sìde / How's the weather?

Tha an t-earrach glè fhuar an-seo am bliadhna. Bha i fliuch no sneachdach agus gaothach gus an tàinig an Cèitean; tha i grianach, ach fuar fhathast. Tha na sràidean salach agus smùirneanach às dhèidh a' Gheamhraidh, le gainmheach sgapte air feadh nan cas-cheuman (an aghaidh tuisleachaidh air a' dhei...

Ciamar a tha an t-sìde / How's the weather?

Seo an seanfhacal Ruiseach: "Никто не любит слишком умных" - "Cha toigh le duine beò am fear a tha ro ghlic". Bidh sin ceart airson fèin-cheartachaidh cuideachd. :D There is a Russian proverb: "Никто не любит слишком умных" - "Nobody likes those who are too clever&...

Ciamar a tha an t-sìde / How's the weather?

Bha i blàr blàth agus fliuch an-seo (St-Petersburg, an Ruis) gus an tàinig ceann na bliadhna, agus an dèidh sin dh'fhàs i uabhasach fuar!

It was warm and wet here (St-Petersburg, Russia) until the end of the year came, and after that it became terribly cold!

A dhà (#2) - Dè as toil leibh?

22480 Sin an fhìrinn Poor Mouse. A bi thu a' snàmh gu tric? Chaidh mise an-dè. Bha e fuar an seo a-raoir ach bha an t-amar-snàmh na bu bhlàithe na a-muigh. That's the truth Poor Mouse.
