Farewells

  • Beannachd leat/leibh  (BAY-uh-nach layt/ leev).  Blessings with you.
  • Mar sin leat/leibh (Mahr shin layt/ leeve) (say this in reply to beannachd leat)
  • Tìoraidh / Tìoraidh ma-tha / Tìoraidh an-dràsta (CHEER-ee/ CHEER-ee mah-ha/ CHEER-ee ahn-DRAHS-da)

Leat and leibh  are two more amalgamated pronouns.  They combine le (with) with thu or sibn.

Mar sin literally means like there is.

Ma-tha means then, and an-dràsda, at the moment, or just now.

Remember that pronunciations are approximate, and there are regional differences.  In my listening from multiple sources, I have heard the word leat, for instance, pronounced two or three different ways.

Take some time to review a previous lesson and try a few sentences of your own.
