(Scottish) Gaelic [No I don't know it.]

Postby Brunetteclutz » Fri Feb 16, 2007 7:26 am

About the only thing I know of it, if this is even correct is...

"Tha gaol agam ort" which means, "I love you."

Anyways, this is a language I'd love to actually learn. I've gotten really curious about things involving Scotland, and love reading "fictional" stories set in Scotland.

Just curious if anyone else maybe knows it or wants to learn it. *shrugs* Read somewhere it's basicly a dying language or close to.

Not sure if I ever could learn it though. I don't feel like I absorb languages very well.

(Should learn german and hebrew actually since I'm mosty german and jewish. :roll: )

I am actually working on it & saving up for the whole computer language teaching thing....ahh I can't remember what, hahaha Rosetta Stone...that's it!! I am Scottish & Irish + so I am trying to learn Gaelic, and I am also trying a few other, odd/dying/uncommon languages...pretty good at learning them. ;)

That's great. I've got some irish in me, put I'm mostly german and jew.

Also I have no idea how well I really absorb languages. I've never really gotten to learn any languages before.

I found out they're like 3 different Gaelic languages. All resemble each other, but have their differences.

Irish, Scottish and Manx I think it is.

Yeah...or like Highlander-Gaelic is the third...not sure, but I am leaning more on the Irish Gaelic, seeing as how they are similar and it seems to be the more common one. A good way to really learn this particular language is to get a cd of either the Riverdance music or Enya. Both have English-to-Gaelic translations inside so you know what they are singing...Enya helped me start to learn, ;)

I may seriously do that. I happen to like Enya anyways. Is it Irish Gaelic?

Alright. That works. I'm not to picky between the Scottish and the Irish. Thanks. :D

Gaelic is a language I want to learn, along with more Japanese and more German... only know a limited amount of words in each, and the German I know is mostly insults or swearing. I used to know one word in it and it meant wolfish... but I can't for the life of me remember it anymore

I'm learning Italian in a couple weeks hopefully. I absorb things pretty well, as long as they are printed or written.

I learned some Gaelic going to school in Ireland.

I can give you a link to a site that has translations for english words into Irish Gaelic

Seeing as it was a couple years ago you guys posted, I don't know if you're still here or interested, but if anyone is, I've started a fresh new thread for Gaelic discussion

Ciamar a tha thu?

You'd have to head to Lewis, Skye, Oban..those kind of places.

I'm an Edinburgh bloke, and I only know about..three people who speak Scots Gaelic (And one who speaks Irish..). Two of 'em are related.

I'd fully recommend having a go at learning it. It's a little awkward when it comes to pronounciation (For example, Barabhas(sp?) is pronounced like bar-vas) but once you get to grips with it you'll be fine.

Am and Edinburgh bloke to Rossiuno :P , and yeah he's right very very few scotts gaelic speakers left and mostly centered round the highlands and islands. Though Irish gaelic is not far different from scots gaelic and i have a flat mate who speaks it he went to a primary school in ireland where all you where allowed to speak was gaelic so still alive in ireland.
Will you still hold me when you see what i have done ...will you still kiss me the same when you taste my victims blood

Good man!
You still based in the Burgh, or have you moved on?

Yeah, we work with an Irish guy who was telling us it was (until recently) part of the curriculum.
