Is mise Hollie

Unread post by Winterrose » Mon Jan 05, 2009 9:02 pm

Hi! Is mise Hollie, (or Winterrose). I've only just started Gaidhlig so please excuse the lack of it! I like Tarot cards and stuff like that. I talk to much but thankfully no one seems to mind that online! :D For some reason don't have anything to say - i'm never like that! Oh well, you got the idea! :D

Och, cyfathrach rhywiol (Tha mi duilich mun Chuimris) Bha cuimhne agam air a' "gh" ach dhìochuimhnich mi "i".

Dè "slenderises" - an e seòrsa diet a th' ann? Cia meud de chloinne Ghàidhlig a chleachdas "slenderises"? Ach bidh iad uile ga dhèanamh gu nàdarra!

'S urrainn dhutsa tromlach a chall - cha dèan ach ionnsachadh Gàidhlig leis an fhormala ùr againn "slenderises"...

Howway man! It's wrote in Gaelic like an ye jest hev ti wark it oot - ye caun't sia as what it mevvies in English like. An asides theor's luads o diffren dilects ain't theor?

Ròs a' Gheamhraidh - GH and DH are much the same animal: how they're said depends on whether they hang out with dieting vowels or fat ones. In this instance, they're both with anorexic vowels, so they both sound somewhat similar (with loads of dialectic provisos) to Y in "yet".

MH is reckoned to be V - as is BH - but in practice it ain't necessarily so. What it is in this case is not something you can illustrate in any sort of English-style orthography: it amounts to a nasalising of the A before it, though you might not notice that happening unless you kent.

The point of the E and the I is mainly to force the GH and DH onto a diet.

So, taking a typical soppy speaker with a lisp, the whole thing becomes something like:-

wotha yowwie...
