Going to School Today?

January 31, 2011

  Cait a bheil sibh a’ dol?

  • Tha sinn a’ dol dhan sgoil an-diugh. (Ha sheen uh dole ghan skole ahn DJU.) We are going to the school today.
  • Tha i a’ dol dhan sgoil an-diugh. She is going to the school today.
  • Tha e a’ dol dhan sgoil an-diugh. He is going to the school today.
  • Tha sibh a’ dol dhan sgoil an-diugh. You formal are going to the school today.
  • Tha iad a’ dol dhan sgoil an-diugh. They are going to the school today.

Use the sentence with previous words.  And here are a couple more that follow the lenition rule. 

  • If the noun following dhan starts with b, c, f, g, m, or p, it is lenited.

Leniting a B becomes BH which is pronounced V:

  • Tha sinn a’ dol dhan bhord. (bord—table becomes vawrd)
  • Tha sinn a’ dol dhan bhlar. (blar—battle becomes vlahr)
  • Tha sinn a’ dol dhan bhruach. (bruach—river bank becomes vruahch)
