Bliadhna Mhath r.
Year good new.

math lenites because bliadhna is feminine.

Do you need pronunciation hints?

Wow! I found my notebook with all my notes where we were all studying it really hard back then.

Thanks! GunChleoc, I found Happy New Year to be the same as what you posted and pronounced "bleenae vah oohr."

Hope that helps, Rindy!

How about we resurrect the Conversational Gaelic thread?

What I've been posting with C Dubh probably should have gone into the advanced thread, but we can return it to its original purpose.

D ur beachd-san? What do you say?

Oh that would be terrific, GunChleoc! thumbs_up.gif You and Cu Dubh can also chat in the advanced thread as well, so we don't slow you both down. But if you don't mind helping us who are having to brush up again, that would be great.

Tapadh leib agus chi mi a dh' aithghearr sibh
Thank you and see you soon.

(hope I didn't mess that up already) unsure.gif

Just a missing h in leibh and a missing accent in ch. Can you type accents?

Bidh e math bruidhinn riut!
It will be good talking to you!

And if C Dubh ever shows up again, we'll he happy to move over to the advanced thread, I'm sure! smile.gif

hallo Gun! Thank so much for the lesson . I have a terrible time with lentition.

I think I will just keep threads as they are and talk to you here and there. Hope Cu Dubh returns! Do you speak the Gaelic fluently?

Not any reason for it here in the states, but I am a 1745 Jacobite re-enactor and trying to learn as much as I can when educating American folks about history and our ancestors and how they may have spoken.

I am not able to do accents for some reason.

moran taing, Ros

Ok, we will start from here, eh?

OK ma-th biggrin.gif

Chan eil Gidhlig fileanta agam fhathast.
I don't speak Gaelic fluently yet.

Tha mise s a' Ghearmailt agus tha mi ag ionnsachadh Gidhlig oir tha e a' crdadh rium gu mr.
I'm from Germany and I am learning Gaelic because I like it very much.

And don't worry about the lenition too much, it just takes some time getting used to, and we all make mistakes wink.gif

Tha mi an dchas gum bi thu a' sgrobhadh mran ann a sheo!
I hope you will be writing a lot here!

OK, I think that's enough for you to digest now. If you have any questions to what I posted, out with them!

Hallo gun! Ciamar a tha thu fhein an-duigh?
Hello Gun, How are you today?

Tha i briagha an Arizona.
It is beautiful in Arizona

De seorsa side ath'agaibh?
What kind of weather you have?

(sorry my pc won't do accents here)

tapadh leat for your help (not sure how to say the latter)

You speak excellent English for being in Germany. I have several friends in Germany and they speak excellent English as well.

I just have to tell you this. Your birthday is the exact same day as mine, but you are 20 years younger. My birthday is April 13 as well. How wierd is that?!

Tioraidh an drasda
bye for now

Tha mi gu math, tapadh leat
I'm well, thank you

Bha i gu math gaothach ach cha robh i fuar an-raoir.
It was quite windy but not cold last night.

I would have used d seorsa sde a th'agad, because you also said ciamar a tha thu and not ciamar a tha sibh.

And I think that would be

Tapadh leat airson do chuideachaidh. or

Tapadh leat air do shon cuideachaidh.

air is a compound conjunction (air + son). son is a noun, so it has to be followed by the genitive, turning cuideachadh into cuidechaidh. Then you have lenition from do = your. I'm not exactly sure right now where it goes. Both positions for do are possible, but the meaning is changed.

Any why do everybody's Birthdays show up without the possibility of hiding them sad.gif

No matter, I lied on it anyway just to be on the safe side biggrin.gif

I would recommend bbc.co.uk/alba/ and there Beag air bheag. They give a pretty good idea where to start and a whole load of useful links.

On the BBC Alba site, I found a super- fun area. It's called Collin and Cumberland and is so funny and also a great way to learn. Its based on a television show. You can catch the episodes there. They also have some great games that teach you the language.

Yes, great idea! I used those games when I started out, they're good for learning some basic vocabulary and expressions, and they're fun.

Hallo a-huine!

Tapadh leat a rithist for your help!
Thank you again for your help.

I can see you are very advanced and the more Gaelic I learn the more confused I get! unsure.gif biggrin.gif It is a very difficult language for me to learn. At one time I spoke fluent Spanish (forget that now) because of the area I live in and I did pretty well with French too (forgot that too) What you don't use, you lose.

Tha an t-uisge ann an Arizona.
It is raining in Arizona.

We need the rain bad!

sorry about the revealing of your birthday. I think the reason why it is revealed is because we have young people come into these sites and we have to make sure you are not a minor for certain threads we may have. If you want it hidden, you may want to check with the administrator (MacFive) to see if that can be done. I am pretty sure it can be, but I can always be wrong! But do tell the truth to him! tongue.gif

De tha do?
What's going on?

Chan eil moran an seo
Nothing much here!

Le meas!
Best wishes!

Asking the age for registration is always done. No worries about revealing it, it was already revealed in my profile wink.gif

Chan eil an t-uisge ann ann an Hamburg an-drsda.
It is not raining in Hamburg right now.

Bha an t-uisge ann an-d co dhi, agus tha i stoirmeil.
It was raining yesterday though, and it is stormy.

Chan eil mran a' dol an-seo nas motha.
There isn't much going on here either.

Bha mi a' leughadh leabhar an-d fad an latha.
I was reading a book all day yesterday.

And bouts of confusion are natural, just give it time until it clears up smile.gif

Cm ort!
Continue!
