Oh that would be terrific, GunChleoc! 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.
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.
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 dè seorsa sìde 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
No matter, I lied on it anyway just to be on the safe side
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.
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! 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!
