appreciation

Unread post by semaphore » Mon Nov 23, 2020 2:26 pm

I've been having difficulty talking about "appreciation". I can talk around it and that does for the most part, but still feels a bit too indirect. This may link to my previous post about rating and valuing things.

I can appreciate that -- tuigidh mi sin (glan)
Any advice would be appreciated -- bhiodh comhairle sam bith luachmhor/cuideachail/na cuideachadh (mòr)
I'd be appreciated if you could -- am biodh tu cho math 's gu (rudeigin)
It was very appreciated - bha e cho prìseil/cudthromach gu (rudeigin)
Let me show my appreciation - leig leam mo chuid taingealachd a shealltainn dhut (rinn mi an-àirde sin)

Does anyone have any different vocabularly or ideas on how this should be expressed?

I keep writing stuff here and forgetting to click submit....

Bhithinn taingeil -- I would be thankful
Bhithinn fada nur comainn -- I would be very grateful (literally, I would be far in your association -- ie. this favour would bond us somehow)
(or fada nad chomainn)

Yuck. That was a rather basic error. Pretty sure I did it right the first two times...

Ahhhh comain, duh. I've always taken that a bit too literally I think. It makes so much sense in this usage though. I haven't heard 'cha phàigh taing thu' riamh that'll do nicely!

Ceud mìle muillean taing dhan dithis agaibh.
