I walk…

January 16, 2011

Tha mi a’ coisich…  (Ha mee uh CAW-shich…) I am walking…

Note that the ch represents the sound much like the German ich made far back in the throat.

Use Tha mi a’ coisich with yesterday’s dhan….

  • Tha mi a’ coisich dhan oifis.  I am walking to the office.
  • Tha e a’ coisich dhan taigh-solais.  He is walking to the lighthouse.
  • Tha sinn a’ coisich dhan taigh-tasgaidh. We are walking to the museum.
  • Tha iad a’ coisich dhan taisbeanadh.  They are walking to the exhibition.

And a few new places you might want to go…

  • Tha mi a’ coisich dhan tràigh.  (Ha mi uh CAW-shich ghahn try.)  I am walking to the beach.
  • Tha mi a’ coisich dhan  sgoil.  (Ha mi uh CAW-shich ghahn skohl.)  I am walking to the school.
  • Tha mi a’ coisich dhan eaglais.   (Ha mi uh CAW-shich ghahn EK-lish.)  I am walking to the church.

      It needs to be, “Chan eil me a’ coiseachd dhan eaglais.”

    Chan eil goes at the beginning of the sentence. Chan eil mi a’ coisich dghan eaglais.

    Tha e fuar seo an-diugh!

      A couple of other suggestions: Chan eil mi a’ dol dhan àite sam bith or cha tèid mi dhan àite sam bith

    Se ‘coiseachd’ a th’ann mar siud.

    ‘Tha mi a’ coiseachd dhan bhùth’. Ach ‘Choisich mi dhan bhùth’.

    Se ‘coisich’ bun na gniomhair.
