Are We Tired of Sleeping Yet?

March 15, 2011

  Remember to substitute any of the previous verbs for a’ cadail.  Some of the nouns are new, some have been used before.

  • Tha iad a’ cadail anns a’ chuan. (Ha EE-it uh CAH-duh AUNS uh CHOO-un.)  They are sleeping in the ocean.  (Fish, we hope.)
  • Tha iad a’ cadail anns a’ gharaids. (Ha EE-it uh CAH-duh AUNS uh GHAHR-edj.)  They are sleeping in the garage.
  • Tha iad a’ cadail anns a’ gharradh. (Ha EE-it uh CAH-duh AUNS uh GHAR-ugh.)  They are sleeping in the garden.
  • Tha iad a’ cadail anns a’ ghleann. (Ha EE-it uh CAH-duh AUNS uh GHLENN.)  They are sleeping in the glen.
  • Tha iad a’ cadail anns a’ ghrian. (Ha EE-it uh CAH-duh AUNS uh GHREE-en.)  They are sleeping in the sun.
  • Tha iad a’ cadail anns a’ mhadainn. (Ha EE-it uh CAH-duh AUNS uh VAH-din.)  They are sleeping in the morning.
  • Tha iad a’ cadail anns a’ mhonadh. (Ha EE-it uh CAH-duh AUNS uh VOHN-ugh.)  They are sleeping in the moor.

Remember that ch is pronounced back in the throat, much like the ich in German.  You’ll hear it in today’s video.  The gh is sort of a softened g also pronounced farther back in the throat. 

Now that we’ve gotten in plenty of sleeping, try all the sentences and ones from previous lessons with a’ dannsa (uh DAHN-suh), dancing:

  • Tha mi a’ dannsa anns a’ mhadainn. (Ha mee uh CAH-duh AUNS uh VAH-din.)  I am dancing in the morning.  (I hope you are, too!)

    Today’s Listening:  A short break from Can Seo to cover a few basic phrases.  What is your name, how are you, and where are you from?  The sound quality is not the best, but I could hear just fine with the volume turned up to 11 (oops, wait, that’s Spinal Tap, I actually had my speakers up to something like 84, which I guess is only around a 9 on their scale.)

    Bit by bit, I will be covering the things that are in all these video.
