Hallo  a huile duine,

Tha mise ann cuideachd.

Tha an t-side gabhaidh a-muigh. Tha i a'cur sneachda.
The weather is terrible out. It's snowing.

Tha mi trang agus bha mi tinn.
I am busy and I was sick.

Tha casad gabhaidh orm.
I have a bad cough.

Tha mi beo co dhuibh! *grin*
I am alive anyway!

Uill, feumaidh mi falbh. Chan 'eil mi aig m'obair an-diugh, ach tha obair-taighe agam a dheanamh.

Do you - or anyone else online - know the difference between rapach and

other words for dirty that are common?
A Shiu\saidh, 

For what it's worth: 
Salach, in my experience, deals primarily with physical dirt, although it could be used as foul e.g. foul-mouthed. Rapach has a wider range of meanings and can describe the weather for example. I haven't heard salach refer to weather. 

Tha Iain salach. would tell me that John is physically dirty, but says nothing of his character. 
Tha Iain rapach. would imply to me that you were talking about more than just physical dirt, or that being physically dirty was a habit for him, or that he was in a dishevelled state that might or might not be physically dirty. 

As Eilidh used it, I would take from it that her house was in a disordered state rather than being dirty the way my car mats are now from people tracking mud onto them during three weeks of rain! 

I've heard druineach ( my spelling of a word I've heard spoken -- I can't find anything close in Dwelly druin rhymes with druim...) used for mess, but I've never heard an adjective form (messy). 

Hope this helps,

Chan eil fhios 'm gu bheil iad cumanta, ach rannsaich mi anns na faclairean

I don't know if they are common, but I looked in my dictionaries and found 
these words:

 ga\nrachadh (m) = clutter
 measgachadh (m) = jumble
 treamsgal (m) = litter
 neo\ghlan = unclean, polluted
 luideach = ragged, slovenly, filthy

Is it just a coincidence that all the nouns associated with messiness are 
masculine. Oops, I just found a feminine one:

 mi\-riaghailt (f) = disarray.

Hallo Elidh

Sgri\obh thu:

Do you suppose our word ransack is derived from *rannsaich*?

The Gaelic word and the English word both derive from the same source, the 
Vikings. In the Norse language (Old Norse) rann means house, and saka means 
look for something. This is all beautifully covered in Roddy MacLean's 
"Litir do Luchd Ionnsachaidh #74" which can be found on the BBC website. If 
you haven't looked at this site yet I would highly recommend it. 
www.bbc.co.uk/scotland/alba/foghlam/litir

By now there are 77 letters, and you can not only read them in Gaelic, but 
you can also listen to Roddy reading them. What are you waiting for?

PS I don't have an answer to your question about the use of *rapach no salach*
except that we do use messy,untidy and also dirty to mean slightly

I wondered when I used it if rapach was ok to use with a house because the 
context in which I saw it was about the weather.

I would say "Dh'fho\n thu gu luath e." which would mean "You phoned him (or

"Tha sinn a' fo\nadh." When using the present tense it's customary to use

 Are you teaching there?

Bithidh mi a' teagaisg an sin gu dearbh. Agus ag ionnsachadh cuideachd aig na
"native speakers" a tha gus a bhith ann. ;)

Will-be I teaching there indeed. And learning also at the native speakers who are
to be there.

I'll be teaching there indeed. And learning also from the native speakers who are
to be there.

Bithidh sinn 'gad fhaicinn,
We'll be seeing you..

Le meas,
Aonghas

Hallo Aonghais,
Ciamar a tha an-diugh?  Tha mi an dochas gu bheil ant-side mhath ann an
Cape Bretainn.
How are you today? I hope that the weather is good in CB.

Bha i griannach agus bha i blath ann an Newmarket an latha.
It was sunny and warm(dry?) in Newmarket this week.
 
'S math gum bi thu aig a' Cholaisde, Eilidh. An robh thu an sin riamh roimhe?

Cha robh mi a'Cholaisde roimh. Bidh mi toilichte ag dol sin.
I wasn't at the College before. I will be happy going there.(...really
wanted to say...I am looking forward to being there... 



Feumaidh gun téid thu do 'n "Red Shoe Pub" ann am Màbu. 
You'll have to visit the RSP in Mabou. It's a nice place indeed.

Tha i aite nuadh, tha mi a'smaoineachadh.
It is a new place, I think.

Tha fios agam a *Shining Waters* 
agus tha am biadh math an-seo. 
I know the SW ( restaurant) and the food is good  there.

at-your keeping busy!

Bithidh sinn gle, gle trang! Tha i gle mhath.:)
We will be very, very busy. It is very good.

A bheil thu a' teasasg an seo?
Are you teaching there?

Hallo a huile duine, 
Ciamar a thu sibh? Tha mi duilich gu bheil cha robh mi a sgriobhadh anns a
Ghaidhlig o chionn fhada.
I am sorry that I was not writing in Gaelic for a long time.

Bha mi ag obair *Ontario Provincial Tests* an samhradh seo.
I was working (as a marker for ) the Provincial Tests this summer.

Tha mi ag obair ann an garadh a nis.
I am working in my garden now.

Tha i breagha, grianach agus blath an-diugh.
It is beautiful, sunny and warm today.

Bha mi ag ol an t-strupag ann an garadh agus bha mi a'leughadh mo leabhar.
I was drinking a cup of tea in the garden and I was reading my book.

Aoghnais - Bidh mi a' dol gu Ceap Breatainn anns an Lu\nasdal.Bidh mi aig
Cholaisde Na Ga\idhlig. Tha an t-eagal agam. :)
 
I will be going to Cape Breton in August.I will be at the Gaelic College. I
am scared! :)

 Tha mi an dochas gum bi mi 'gad fhaicinn! Bi mi ann bho 27 Lu\nasdal gu 1
1 Sultuine ach bidh mi ann an Mhabou an t-seachdain roimhe.

I hope that I will see you.I will be there August 27 to Sept.1 but I will
be in Mabou the week before.

Beannachd leibh,
Eilidh
