I am going….

January 13, 2011

Tha mi a’ dol…  ( Ha mee uh dole…)  I am going…

tha am

mi I

a’ dol going


There are two ways to follow up this sentence, depending if you are going ‘to’ or ‘to the.’  ‘To’ is a.

Tha mi a’ dol a Bharragh.*  (Ha mee uh dole uh Vahrrah.)  I am going to Barra.

Try the sentence with your own place names around your town, to practice the sentence.

Also, try with other pronouns, i, e, and sinn:

Tha e a’ dol a Bharragh.  He is going to Barra. (Try with your own town names.)

Tha i a’ dol a Bharragh.  She is going to Barra.

Tha sinn a’ dol a Bharragh.  (Ha sheen uh dole uh Vahrah.)  We are going to Barra.

* Bharragh is an example of lenition, discussed in I want… and I see…

      Have fun! I kind of miss going to the gym. [Ag obair (because vowels get ag and consonants get a’)].
