Hi everyone!

Need help...looking to translate "sister" into Scottish Gaelic, more specifically "little sister" or "younger sister" if possible or some variation.

Thanks!

P.S. if you are addressing her, you need the vocative case, which would be:

a phiuthar! a phiuthrag! a phiuthar bheag!

Sister = piuthar
Little sister = piuthar beag
Young sister = puithar g
My little sister = mo phiuthar bheag
My young sister = mo phiuthar g

Piuthrag = This word would not normally be used to describe a little or young sister. Basically it means waif or minx. It could, I suppose, be used as a term of endearment but invariably it is used as a derogatory term.

If you were going to address only your sister directly, verbally or in writing, you would say:
a phiuthar bhig = little sister,
or
a phiuthar ig = young sister

Hope this is helpful to you

Little sister = piuthar bheag

Of course, you might have to use a different case depending on context.
