Scottish Gaelic Lesson 6 – Questions

Questions in Gaelic (ceistean)

The question form of “tha” is bheil (valugh) and it needs to have AM in front – Am bheil….

Tha e fuar becomes as a question Am bheil e fuar?

So Tha effectively becomes Am bheil in a question.

To negate the above Tha e fuar, we still use bheil,  add cha and then shorten bheil to eil.

cha n-eil e fuar – he is not cold

and finally to make a question of it:

nach´eil e fuar? – is he not cold?

The above looks ever so complex, so we will not move on until we have mastered this.

To Summarise:

Tha e fuar  – he is cold

cha n-eil e fuar – he is not cold

nach´eil e fuar? – is he not cold?
