The one i wanted was in Waterstones but i refused to pay £20 for it. It was about 450pages long, blue cover, has small sized text inside, is a Gaelic-English dictionary, and after the word in Gaelic it gives a pronunciation of it (A rather good one tbh). It must be an reprinted ersion as they still...

Have a look at Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_ss_w_h_/202-2213326-9687848?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Gaelic+dictionary+&x=18&y=20 You can see that the Angus Watson Eng - Gaelic is now available in paperback, and used even cheaper. I personally like this one, along wi...

Halò, a Chris,

Seo molaidh dhut bhuamsa:

Bidh mi ag obair cus an còmhnaidh

Tha mi a' fuireach còmhla ri mo leannan agus mo thrìuir chlann-cèile.

Dè ur beachd, a h-ulie duine?

I wasnt being critical of the teacher, the teacher couldnt do more to help the kids, this just basically to help them remember the words they learned in class. I wasn't saying you were - in fact it was more the others spontaneously reacting with dismay that I was thinking of, maybe making you yours...

That is exactly what is happening. OK, then I personally would be more generous in my interpretation of the quality of the homework. You can, if you feel ypu must, always have a quick look in the dictionary to check accents etc. It 's important not to be over-critical of the teacher or you will und...

Have I not always said that FtMnG was full of people who don't speak Gaelic? * I see this differently. It's quite possible that the teacher in question does NOT 'speak' Gaelic badly, but is in fact a native-speaker who can deal with spoken Gaelic perfectly well, just hadn't had much if any Gaelic-l...

Hi Chris, sorry you feel left out, but I think it's perception, not reality. Gun Chleoc has really given you a lot of very patient help and others have from time to time too. :D Remember this is not a teaching forum, but a random community where people post if they have time and have answers.

Bha cat air a fòn. there was a cat on her phone although i suspect this is probably a mistake, and that they meant "bha cat air a n f h òn", meaning "there was a cat on the phone" ... Though you do hear fòn unlenited (hence 'air a' fòn') - borrowed words aren't always used consi...

Taing dhut airson sin, a Ghraisg.

Tha e gu math doirbh dhomhsa, ach tha mi ga chlàradh agus mar sin 's urrainn dhomh 'èisteachd a-rithist'.

Mìle taing! Saoilidh mi nach eil cho chudromach a bheil an eadar-theangachadh fìor mionaideach (100% 'ceart'), ach a bheil na h-òrain Ghàidhlig fhèin ag obrachadh gu math mar òrain, no mar bàrdachd mhath. A rèir choltais 's ann mar sin a bha e, air neo cha bhitheadh tu air an leabhar a cheannach! :l...
