Hello,I am just starting out learning Gaelic and I need help. I have been looking for 3 words and found all sorts of solutions
I need Seek (As in seeking for knowledge/research/study), Learn (being a student/learn from everything), and teach. So far I have found Rannsiach, Foghliam, Teasaig. But I also found Sir or Lorg for Seek and ionnsaich for learn or teach.
I was wondering what the best choice for my purposes are, I don't need it in a sentence or anything... think of it more like a slogan. "Seek, Learn, Teach". Please help, I'm so lost.

My irish gaelic language book has (ag) log for seeking, and foghlaim (f) for learning, (foghlaimionn is learns).

This is a question for Scottish Gaelic though. Giving an answer from an Irish doctionary is like checking a Danish Dictonary for English words wink.gif

Bahishnessly,

I would agree with GunChleoc except I think “Rannsiach” would be more appropriate than “Sir” in the slogan.

Rannsiach, ionnsaich, teagaisg. Rolls off the tongue better in Gaelic
