Sidetracked by SEE

Because tenses are fun! (Right! Right?)

Faic means to see. 

Somehow or other–don’t ask me how–will see in the future becomes chi. But really, do we ask these questions about our own language? Here are some examples of chi, the future tense of faic.

  • Chi mi ann sibh (CHee mee own SHEEV) I’ll see you there [own rhymes with clown]
  • Chì mi iad an-ath-sheachdain. (CHee mee EE-et ahn ah SHECH-den) I’ll see them next week
