Last Ann An (in a)

February 12, 2011

  There are five new words today, but three three begin with ionad–place.

  • Tha mi ag obair ann an ionad-siubhail.  (EE-uh-ned SHOO-vehl) travel agency
  • Tha mi ag obair ann an ionad-spòrsa. (EE-uh-ned SPOHRS-suh) sports center
  • Tha mi ag obair ann an ionad-slàinte.  (EE-uh-ned SLAHN-chuh) health center
  • Tha mi ag obair ann an oilthigh.  (OOL-high) university
  • Tha mi ag obair ann an ospadal.  (OH-spuh-dul)  hospital (this one is review)

Use these with previous pronouns and verbs.

  • ‘S toil leum ionad-siubhail.
  • Tha e a’ cadail ann an oilthigh.  (Some of those professors really can put you to sleep!)
  • Tha sinn a’ faicinn ospadal.
  • Tha i a’ dol dhan ionad-slàinte.
  • Tha ionad-spòrsa agam.
  • Tha ionad-siubhail againne.

If you have forgotten what some of these words mean, use the search function in the upper right hand corner.  Type in the word and click ‘This Site,’ and it will pull up the posts using those words.

Now is also a good time to review some of the Can Seo videos.  In the meantime, I thought I’d post something a little different for listening.  In my internet wanderings today, I discovered the band Runrig from Scotland.  Here they’re singing Cho Buidhe Is a Bha I Riabh (As Yellow as it Ever Was) in Gaelic.  (Thank you, Eilidh at Copper Beach.)

    I have a few songs by Capercaile (sp?) for my list of “running” music.
    Glè snog.
    I will have to listen to more of Runrig…….

      I have to look them up on youtube. I’ve heard about them frequently, but have not gone specifically to listen to their music.
