Aig with New Vocabulary: Clothing

January 28, 2011

Some clothes you might have.  For newcomers, tha (noun) agam actually means Is (noun) at me, the Gaelic expression for “I have (noun).”

  • Tha lèine agam.  (Ha LAYnuh AHKum.)  I have a shirt.
  • Tha pants agad.  (Ha pahnts AHKut.)  You have pants. 
  • Tha drathais againne.  (Ha DRAH-esh AHKeen.)  We have pants.
  • Tha briogais agaibh.  (Ha BRIHkish AHKiv.)  You (plural or formal) have trousers.
  • Tha briogais ghoirid aca.  (Ha BRIHkish GHOORidj AHkuh.)  They have shorts.

Try each of these with bha (vah) was:

  • Bha lèine agam.  (Vah LAYnuh AHKum.)  I had a shirt.
  • Bha pants agad.  (Vah pahnts AHKut.)  You had pants.  (Dare I ask where they are now?)
  • Bha drathais againne.  (Vah DRAH-esh AHKeen.)  We had pants.
  • Bha briogais agaibh.  (Vah BRIHkish AHKiv.)  You (plural or formal) had trousers.
  • Bha briogais ghoirid aca.  (Vah BRIHkish GHOORidj AHkuh.)  They had shorts.

Don’t forget to go back to previous lessons and use previous words with the new sentences.
