Does anyone speak Irish Gaelic? I absolutely love the song "Drake" by Afro Celt Sound System, but can't find any English lyrics. Anyone who knows me knows I have to know what a song is about! Thanks!

Thanks. There was no translation posted on the site when I looked, but I have not tried to contact anyone to ask.

Tha sin neo-àbhaisteach! 'S fheàrr leis a' mhorchuid de dhaoine bradan! :D

'S toil leamsa an dà chuid - bratan ùr agus rionnach smocte. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! :kiss:



Iasgair: I like salmon but I prefer mackerel.
Me: That's unusual! Most people prefer salmon!
I like both - fresh salmon and smoked mackerel.

A bheil? Bha e brèagha an seo cuideachd an-diùgh - uabhasach grìanach!
'S dòcha gu bheil an t-earrach ann ..... :rose:

I'm probably going to completely botch this, but here goes:

Tha i gheamhradh fhathast, ach tha i t-earrach cuideachd.

It is still winter, but it is also spring.

Please tell me I did that right... :oops:

Nearly! :D

What you probably haven't learned yet is that when you equate two nouns (e.g. a cat is an animal), or a pronoun and a noun (e.g. I am a riggie, it is spring), you need a different verb 'to be', the so-called 'assertive verb', 'is', not the 'tha' form you usually use. You probably know 'Is mise Gaelflowergirl'.

But that's a whole new chapter, and I'm not going to start it tonight! :twisted:

You can get round this by using 'ann' - here/there/present

Tha an geamhradh ann fhathast, ach tha an t-earrach ann cuideachd - The winter is still here but the spring is here too! :rose:

Ciamar a ghabhas tu do rionnach? Smocte? Ùr?

Agus carson a dh'imrich thu? Dè bha ceàrr air a' chiad uamh? :?:


How do you take your mackeral - smoked or fresh? And why did you move? What was wrong with the first cave?

chaidh mi mo raon seilge agus chunnaic mi aite ur ri taobh allt beag bhricean 'blasd cuideachd'. ach chaneil mi glaicte moran breac - cha robh breac ann an allt beag... chunnaic mi moran 'ringed-ouzels'... obh.

iasg fionnair - uamhasach fionnair... agus cnamh.

i went to my hunting ground and i saw a new place beside the burn of the little trout (or little burn of trout) 'tasty too'. but i caught no trout - there was no trout in the little burn... i saw many ringed ouzels sigh.

fresh fish - very fresh fish and the bones.
