A' toirt a-steach mi fhèin a-rithist!

Unread postby Leòmhann » Sat Aug 10, 2019 12:36 am

Latha math a h-uile sibh! Tha mi a' toirt a-steach mi fhèin a-rithist! Carson? Tha fheàrr Gàidhlig agam! Mar sin, 's mise Cailean no Leòmhann, chan eil leiteachas agam. Tha mi às na Stàitean Aonaichte na h-Aimeireaga agus bha a' rugadh sa stàite na h-Utah. Bha mi a' rugadh le Beurla agam ach 's mo teaghlach Albais Uladh. Bha sinn às a' t-Ceann Loch Chille Chiarain sa Ghàidhealtachd agus chaill sinn a' Ghàidhlig againn. Mar sin, tha mi ag ionnsachadh e dhomh agus airson mo shliochd, mo theaghlach. Dè iarraidh fios agaibh?

Hello y'all! I'm introducing myself again! Why? I speak better Gaelic! So, I'm Cailean or Leòmhann, I don't have a preference. I'm from the United States of America and was born in the state of Utah. I was born speaking English but my family is Ulster-Scots/Scots-Irish. We're from Campbeltown in the Highlands and lost our Gaelic. So, I'm learning it for me and for my descendents, my family. What do you want to know?

Inntinneach!

Cus ri cheartachadh ;-) ach seo rud no dhà.
Too much to correct but here are a couple of things.

Latha matha dhuibh uile. (do = to > dhuibh = to you pl.)

toirt a-steach = put in, insert, submit. Wrong "introduce" - never just go for the first option in LearnGaelicDict - check for most relevant.(In this case the second one.) Or just say It's me again - Seo mise a-rithist.)

Tha G. nas fheàrr agam a-nis. Adjectives normally come after the verb and in the comparative form (more, better) they have "nas" before them.

Dèan cinnteach gum bi thu ag ionnsachadh gràmar (gu h-àraidh structar-seantans) fhad' s a bhios tu ag ionnsachadh briathrachas.
Make sure you are learning grammar (especially sentence-structure) parallel to learning vocab.

(Gaelic is very different from English in that respect, and the concepts behind it have to become gradually familiar. One-to-one tr*nsl*t**n rarely works.)

A bheil cùrsa agad, no neach-teagaisg prìobhaideach? No a bheil thu a' leantainn cùrsa air loidhne? No leabhar?

Aonar, ceud mìle taing. Dhàrna, tha mi a' leantainn cùrsa air-loidhne le Mángo Languages agus tha "Gaelic in Twelve Weeks" agam. Tha mi airson a dhèanamh leasan le neach-teagaisg prìobhaideach air italki agus chan eil airgead gu leòr agam. Nuair a tha airgead gu leòr agam airson an obair agam bidh mi.

First, a hundred thousand thanks. Second, I am taking an online course with Mángo Languages and I have "Gaelic In Twelve Weeks". I want to do a private tutor in italki and I don't have enough money. When I have enough money from my job I will.
