A couple of words

Unread post by Illeach » Thu May 02, 2013 2:55 pm

I was looking for a little more assistance. I have checked the dictionaries but am aware it's not always as simple as putting two words together so wanted to check how you would say the following:

Bright Star
Bold Dog
Brave Dog
Protector
Lucky dog
Beautiful Dog
Black Terrier

Many thanks and apologies if this is not appropriate to be asking so much. It's for an application so I want to double check.

Just a suggestion - you (and perhaps others) would learn more from this if you had a go yourself first and then ask for feedback. Working on the assumption that, since you did some Gaelic at school, you have a basic understanding and would like to improve your skills?

Thanks and yes I am keen to learn myself. I have an idea of these but was not sure i was correct, as folk in here know far more than I I thought I would be better asking for some help. In no way does it mean I do not wish to learn. I actually just needed some help as my deadline is tomorrow. I just wanted to be sure I have used the words used in the correct context.

Thank you very much. Would Cu Rìomhach also tr*nsl*t* to beautiful/bonny/pretty dog?

Thank you again - thinking about all of these has inspired me to look into some evening classes in my area!

Yes, it would (mind the grave on the ù though). Check out the Faclair Beag entry for rìomhach

And glad to hear it has inspired you :)
