Madainn mhath, Ciamar a tha thu Ros?


's mise Fraoch.
I am Heather

Tha me a fearach Texas ach tha i teth a-muih an-diuh.
I live in Texas and it is hot outside today.


I hope I got this correct it's been awhile since I've been to class. My friend Jonquele has a study group but my son has soccer. Aiden comes first.

Since you live in America try ACGMA. It is a society for the advancement of gaelic and has study groups forming all over America. I'll try to find their website for you.

Tha mu duillich thisn't written in gaelic but it would take too long.


Mar sin leat

Mar sin leibh an drasda;

I don't know how you say that literally, I'd say

Thisich mi air Gidhlig ionnsachadh deich bliadhna air ais.
Tha mi nam Ghidhlig ionnsachadh os cionn deich bliadhna.

deich = ten
deug = -teen

Tha ceithir leabhraichean na Gidhlig agam, ach chan fhaigh mi lorg cil sam bith ann.

faigh a-mach = find out
lorg = find

Tha gu digheil, tapadh leat! biggrin.gif
I'm fine, thank you

BTW if you address me with sibh, you will have to use leibh, not leat.

And it's oidhche mhath, oidhche is feminine wink.gif

The online dictionaries I use are Str-dta Briathrachais Gidhlig, Briathrachan beag and Faclair nan Gnthasan Cainnte.

As paper dictionaries I recommend the Teach Yourself Gaelic Dictionary if you can't spend much money. If you want to have the whole works, get The Essential English-Gaelic Dictionary by Angus Watson and The Gaelic-English Dictionary - Am Faclair Gaidhlig-Beurla by Colin Mark. Especially the Colin Mark is a treasure trove.

@Heather: Tha ptan ro-sheallaidh ann.
There's a preview button.

agam already contains mi (aig+mi), so you say Tha faclair r agam. Cheannaich mi e aig Borders an-diugh. or: Cheannaich mi aig Borders an-diugh e - I bought it at Borders today.

I don't know how you say it was the order of the week. Expressions like that are often quite different in another language.

D am faclair a cheannaich thu? Which dictionary did you buy?


@Lori: Filte ort! Welcome!

'S mise GunCleoc agus thisich mi nam Ghidhlig ionnsachadh timcheall d bhliadhna air ais.
I'm GC and I started learning Gaelic about two year ago.

Chan eil clasaichean ann far a bheil mi a' fuireach.
Where I'm living there are no classes.

A bheil tidsear agad, a Lori? Do you have a teacher, Lori?


Please feel free to post any questions, I'll try to answer as best I can and not make too many mistakes. For questions I can't answer you can try http://www.noclockthing.de/foramnagaidhlig/
