Is mise Lisa-Marie

Unread post by erdbeerhimmel » Sat Jul 11, 2009 1:58 pm

Halò, is mise Lisa-Marie (how to write that? I've seen that the names change quite a bit, but haven't figured out how).
Tha mise à Ghearmailt ach tha mi a' fuireach ann (Norway).

Hello to you all. I use all my knowledge on you now ;) But as i only started yesterday i hope it is forgiven... Much on the forum is like non-understandable. But i get really happy everytime I find a word i know or have written before. I hope i can use my Gaelic here so that i get better. Wouldn't work if i only sat at home alone and never getting to use it!

Halò agus fàilte dhan fòram!
Hello and Welcome

To say that you from Germany you would say, Tha mi às a' Ghearmailt.

The Gaelic word for "Norway" is Nirribhidh.

Halò Alasdair, tapadh leibh!

I have to write it down once more:

Tha mi às a' Ghearmailt ach tha mi a' fuireach ann Nirribhidh.

Is there an gaelic way to say my name?

(you said more than Hello and Welcome, didn't you? You said Welcome to the forum, right?)

...ach tha mi a' fuireach ann an Nirribhidh :)

I would just say, Lìosa-Màiri however it sounds better as it is.

And yes, i did say "Hello and welcome to the forum".

Failte Lisa-Màiri.
Seall seo cuideachd. Beagan eile anns a Ghearmailtis.

Look at this also. Some more in German.

@alasdairB: tapadh leibh! I have this website in German which gets a little deeper into grammar at once. I like that very much. Don't want to be someone who just learns some sentences without knowing how they are built etc.

@neoni: Eg snakker stavangersk-dialekt. Det er isje rent nynorsk. Korfor er et godt spørsmål. Har lest Highland-Sagaen av Diana Gabaldon. Er mer interessert i "ukjente" språk som ikke så mangen snakke. Og eg ELSKER å lære språk :)

Why i learn gaelic is a very good question. I read the Highland-Saga by Diana Gabaldon. Am more interestet in "unknown" languages, which aren't spoken by many. And i LOVE to learn languages.

Halò agus fàilte ort!

Welche Seite ist das? Wenn das diese KD Europetraveldingsbumsodersoähnlich ist, würde ich die Finger von lassen, da sind zu viele Fehler drin :(

Ansonsten kannst Du auch mal bei www.schottisch-gaelisch.de vorbeischauen wenn Du magst, da gibt es auch ein Forum.

Càite a bheil thu a' fuireach ann an Nirribhidh? Where are you living in Norway?

Tha mi dìreach air tighinn às na Lofoten. Bha mi ann seachdain a' gabhail na grèine. Ich komme gerade aus den Lofoten. Ich war eine Woche da Sonne tanken.

Ooooh no. :( :olc: It certainly is that site. I so loved it. Well, good to know.
I too play this Colin and Cumberland. It's quite funny, but i am not learning that much. I need real stuff: Heavy grammar! (And i actually mean it :roll: )

Tha mi fuirreach ann an Sandnes (near Stavanger, Westcoast). I love the weather. Right now it's like kind of rainy and about 17 degrees... Was in Germany one week for holidays. We had like 30 degrees and no sun, it was killing me!

Lofoten? NEver been there! But must be nice! I've only heard good things!

Tha thu a' fuireach ann an ceann a deas mar-thà - you're living in the south then.

I was lucky.. midnight sun, and I mean sun :D

For serious grammar, best go to Akerbeltz and Taic. If you want a gentler approach, try BBC's Beag air Bheag.

Hmm, not the south, it is west!! (Important :roll: :roll: )

Well, we have quite a bit sun too. But after this 30 degrees, i enjoy the rain the most!

I did this BBC thing, it is too much learning phrases! It is okay to learn phrases, but i am just learning the language, i have wishes to travel and use the language one day, but thats far away. So it's not that interesting with phrases right now!

akerbeltz? I was on that site once... It was so gaelic ;) I'll try taic though! Tapadh leibh.

If you really want to learn the pronunciation rules, akerbeltz is the ticket. try these starting pages:

Halò Gun. I think i want to have some grammar first, and take the pronounciation a little more serious later. I want to understand the structure of the language first!

edit: Oooh, i love taic! :cridhe: :adhradh: \:D/
