Tha i fuar agus gaothach a-rithist ach tha i grianach an-duigh.

Is that proper structure for Gaelic, i.e. gender agreement and just proper sentence structure? Should I have used grianaich or grianaiche? My thinking is that grianaich or grianaiche is the feminine version and 'i' is the feminine pronoum. I am only on Lesson 2 of TAIC, and trying to put this together using a dictionary.

I want to say "It is cold and windy again, but it is sunny today."

Tha a h-uile rud thuirt thu ceart gu leòr! Everything you said is fine.

"grianaiche" is genative, but don't worry about that just now. If you can get access to Teach Yourself Gaelic by Boyd Robertson, you'll do really well. It explains the relative gramatical points rather well that go along with the unit you are on. It taught me a lot.

San Eilean Sgitheanach tha i fuar agus tioram an-diugh. Bha barrachd sneachd an seo a-raoir cuideachd. Tha e a' coimhead gle steimsidh! :D

I have Teach Youself Gaelic. I haven't really used it yet. I have been using TAIC and Beag Air Bheag.

You do not need to use agreement when you say tha e... tha i....

Tha i math - she is good

but:

Oidhche mhath! = Good night! - Here you get the agreement, because math goes directly with the noun.

Tha an t-sìde glè mhath an seo an-dràst'. Tha i fuar ach griannach agus tha sneachd againn air na beanntan :) Tha i a' coimhead brèagha!
Tha mi a' smaoineachadh gum bi i nas miosa aig an deireadh na seachdain ged-tà...
Great weather. Cold but sunny - we have snow.
Think it'll be worse by the weekend.

Tha e air a bhith fuar an-seo an t-seachdainn seo chaidh, ghabh sin beagan sneachda aig àm gu àm. Gu fortunach chan bhi sinn a faighinn side cho uabhasach agus side Ottawa no Montréal, anns na bailtean sin tha mi a creidsinn gu bheil mòran sneachda ann fhathast.

Canar (bh)o àm gu àm ;)

Dh'fhàs e caran fuar agus an-seo, ach chan eil sneachd sam bith ann fhathast.
It has grown somewhat cold over here too, but there's no snow yet.

Tha i caran fuar agus sgòthach.
Bha an t-uisge ann sa' mhadainn tha mi a' smaoineachadh air sgàth 's gu bheil i tais.
Little cold and cloudy.
It rained this morning i think cause it is damp.

Tha sinn air sìde nas fheàrr fhaighinn an t-seachdainn seo chaidh, ach tha mi'n dochas gun atharraichidh e gu tràth, mar sin b'urrainn dhomh beagan hockey a chluich. :lol:

Tha e cho fuar ris a' phuinnsean an seo an-dràsta...
An-dè, bha mi ann an Taigh na Droma agus bha 1 troigh na sneachd ann!
Co-dhuì, chan eil sneacht ann an seo - fathast. 'S dòcha a-nochd.
