Obh, is truagh sin gu dearbh! :( 'S urrainn dhomh an clisgeadh culturach a dhealbhadh! :mc: Feumaidh tu grèim a ghabhal air a h-uile cothrom a bhith a' cleachdadh Gàidhlig - radio, ceòl, WHFP, eadar-lìon, puist-d, SMS, fòn gu caraidean, Skype.... tha fios agad fhèin mar-thà.

You can also say ..... fo gheasaibh. Another way to say this is "cuir geasa air" - put a spell on.
You're right - geas is the modern spelling - wasn't thinking GOC when in fairy-tale mode... 8-)

To cast a spell is: cuir fo gheusaibh

(from geus, a spell, enchantment)

Book of shadows - it would , as mentioned above, depend a bit on the shadows you mean, but by far the most likely would be

Leabhar nam Faileas

Sounds better with the article to me.

Tha Julie Fowlis a' seinn 'Blackbird' - sa Ghàidhlig

Air Radio nan G., ach dìreach gus a-màireach, 's dòcha, oir bha am program air Diardaoin sa chaidh. Mar sin, èist a-rithist GU LUATH! :lol: Lorg is gliog air Program ' Sgailean ' anns an liosta, bhon 14 Lunastal; tha agallamh agus an t-òran direach aig deireadh a' phrògram: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radi...

Going by songs I know, I would say ' faileas ' fits the bill here. The shadow cast by something or someone. Faileas air an Airigh , by Runrig, is not the only one. Watson supports this: Laigh a faileas orm : her shadow fell on me. and compares: sgàil(e) as a 'shade' eg beneath the shade of a tree: f...

ann an seòmar air a bheil an Seòmar Righ Seumas
I would be inclined go for the genitive construction here, as used in compounds with proper names.

..ann an 'Seòmar Righ Sheorais'

cf:

Tha e aig Oilthigh Ghlaschu
Tha Fèis Dhùn Eideann ann an-dràsta

Gàidhlig air an teilebhisean Basque

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0u8fO_qsGSU

6 mionaidean, Beurla agus Gàidhlig le fo-tiotalan Basque, clann às a' bhun-sgòil G. Inbhir-Nis . Rud beag aon-ghuthach, ach co-dhiù. Basque telly, rud eadar-dhealaichte. :D

'Far' is unlike the other conjunctions/relative pronouns, which DO tale the relative/independent, because it runs parallel to 'Càite`. That makes it easier to remember. :D Càit am bi thu a-maireach?
