Hallo Les,

Gabh mo leisgeul, ach chan 'eil Ga\idhlig agam airson seo a sgri\obhadh.
Excuse me, but I don't have enough Gaelic to write this.

Our group has worked with the verbs: "smaoinich" and "saoil" and a little
bit on "creid"...

They're a little bit different.

We came up with the following distinction:

saoil, a' saoilsinn = your opinion, what do you think?
smaoinich, a' smaoineachadh = to think, hard to think

Cha chreid mi nach...(+any verb)...I think that...
Cha chreid mi nach teid mi a mach.  I think that I'll go out.
Cha chreid mi nach suidhe mi shios.  I think that I'll sit down.

Not sure if that helps or not, ach, sin e!

Siu\saidh
