Fhuair. Bha e glè bhlàsta! Cheannaich mi ubhal, aran, agus càise.

I have always had verb tables in books, so I've never checked on the net for them. Try checking the Appendices of the Taic course - link on top of this page

Moran taing.

I found a good verb table some time ago on another forum similar to this one, but it was a hand-written copy posted as a picture within the post, so search engines don't seem to pick up on the words.

Moran taing. Bha e brèagha a-muigh an-dè gu dearbh. Toisichidh na clasaichean an-diugh ged a shaoil am bi tuilleadh ri ionnsachadh anns a' chanteen na anns a' chlass (a' bruidhinn ri daoine anns a' Ghàidhlig). ;)

Thanks. It was beautiful outside yesterday. Classes start today, although I wonder if there's more to be learned in the canteen than in the class (talking to people in Gàidhlig). ;)

Ciamar a tha sibh, a h-uile daoine?

Bidh mi a' dol a' Dhùn Eideann a-màireach. Piuthar agus( teaghlach aice,) mo ghraidh a' tighinn a' Dh'Alba air an làithean-saora. Tha iad a' fuireach ann an Nirribidh ach tha iad às an Innis Tìle.

Diardoine, mo chàraid, Steophan a' tighinn a dh'Alba cuideachd. Tha e a Alba ach a' fuirech ann China an-dràsda.
Bidh uabhaschadh mhath ga fhaicinn.

Ciamar a bha Dun Èideann?
How was Edinburgh?

Bha mi fhìn air saor-làithean agus chòrd iad rium glan, ach tha e math a bhith air ais cuideachd.
I was on a holiday myself and i really enjoyed it, but it is good to be back too.

Beagan ceartachaidh air a' chiad rud:

a h-uile duine - singular
a' dol a Dhùn Èideann / a dh'Alba - without apostrophe
Mo phiuthar agus a teaghlach
na làithean-saora - plural article

Tha thu a' dèanamh glè mhath :D

I already took my breakfast. It's a beautiful day today and i think i Will be working in the garden. After that, i will clean my house and maybe we Will go to the restaurant for dinner.

Tha mi a' sgrìobhadh aiste gum chlas Frangaise.
I'm writing an essay for my French class.

(Is gu the right preposition here? Is there a better word than aiste for an academic paper?)

Chaidh mi a Ratharsair Disathairne, bha e uabhasach math agus a' ghrian ann.

I went to Raasay on Saturday, it was really good and the sun was out.


Beagan ceartachaidh:

Ghabh mi mo bhracaist

glanaidh mi an taigh agam

bidh sinn a' dol don/dhan taigh-bìdh

a' chiad turais - a' chiad does lenite, but not if the following word starts with d, t, s.

@Sectori: aiste is fine, as a preposition use do. airson also works grammar-wise, but it is a bit strong in this context.


Guma math a thèid leat leis an aiste!
Good luck with the article

'S bochd sin! Chan urrainn dhomh a ràdh le cinnt, ach tha mi 'n dòchas gum tig e a dh'aithghearr...

It's a pity! I cannot say for sure, but I hope that it will come soon...
