Re: Why is it "Càit' a bheil" and not "Càit' a tha"?

According to my grammar books, it's the same a/an/am as in "A bheil thu sgìth?"

No idea what the history is.

Re: A’ Bhearradh Dhearg

Where did you source that name from? I don't know what the Gaelic name for that place is, so we can only judge by the quality of your source.

There's a list of available placename dictionaries at: http://www.smo.uhi.ac.uk/gaidhlig/gaidh ... nmean-aite

Re: Understate Overstate

"suim" sounds good to me too. You could also look into usaged of "meas"

Re: Genitive - lenition wthout article

For words like lùth-chleas, "lùth" is carrying the stress, and such stressed prefixes always lenite, but do not trigger the genitive case. Other examples are deagh-, seann-, ro-, mòr-, dì-, mì-

So, it's "am mì-fhortan", (adjective mì-fhortanach) and NOT am mì-f(h)ortain.

Re: Cat (Cait?) sìth pronunciation

Looks like it's one of those words that depend on which dialect. There are no votes on faclair.com yet for any of them, so I can't tell.

Re: My Michaelmas song tr*nsl*t**n - could you look it over?

Eek, my MuseScore skills have gotten really rusty. I don't have time to relearn right now, so I edited the sporano for the first sentence and added the text with GIMP. I hope this will give you more or a feeling for the stressed/unstressed syllable thing. https://www.foramnagaidhlig.net/temp/a_mhich...

Re: My Michaelmas song tr*nsl*t**n - could you look it over?

If you created this with MuseScore, can you share the source file on the MuseScore site? It will make it a lot easier for me to help. I also recomment that you keep the accents in your transcription, to mark the long vowels - this will help your choir with understanding the pronunciation. Just looki...

Re: My Michaelmas song tr*nsl*t**n - could you look it over?

The "dhuinn" belongs to "ionnsaich". "ionnsaich" = "learn", "ionnsaich do" = teach. So, it can't be left out. The "a" is part of the vocative case and is needed also: http://www.akerbeltz.org/index.php?title=Masculine_nouns#Proper_nouns "Tha am blàr air tòiseachadh." could be shortened to: 'S am blà...
