"feumaidh tu mo thoirt às an àite seo" - "you've got to get me out of this place"

Tha mi a' smaoineachadh gu bheil mo ghràmar ceart an seo, ach seall - chan eil "standard inversion" ann.

Carson nach e "feumaidh tu mi a thoirt às an àite seo"?

"Feumaidh tu mo thoirt..." - Seo an dòigh àbhaisteach ann an Gàidhlig na h-Alba. Riochdair sealbhach a chleachdadh airson a' chuspair dhìrich.

Air uairibh cleachdar an dòigh eile le riochdairean làidir: "Feumaidh tu mise a thoirt air falbh."

"Feumaidh tu mi/mise a thoirt..." - Seo an dòigh àbhaisteach ann an Gàidhlig na h-Èireann san latha an-diugh. ("Caithfidh tú mé a thabhairt...")

Tapadh leibh a Chamac002 - glè inntinneach!

Switch to Beurla for clarity because of my shaky Gàidhlig :D

So this is a /style/thing triggered by the presence of a personal pronoun (unemphasised )? You use a possessive and a verbal noun here in the same way that you might elsewhere say "chan eil mi gad chluinntinn"?

Le meas, MartinJ

Tha sin ceart.

Seo agad earrann bhuntainneach a tharraing mi às an leabhar aig Raghnall MacilleDhuibh, "Cothrom Ionnsachaidh".

Yep, that's correct.

Here's a relevant excerpt I took from Ronald Black's book Cothrom Ionnsachaidh:
