Why is it 'you are grumpy' is 'tha sibh sgith' but 'you are fun' is 'tha thu sporsail'? What's the difference between 'thu' and 'sibh'?
thu is informal and sibh is formal (in Danish it's like saying du or De. In French it's like saying tu or vous). Tha sibh sgìth = you are tired, btw. Grumpy is 'greanach'. Live and learn :)
would you say that thu or sibh either are used more day to day?
It depends who you're talking to
p.s. "sibh" is also plural
Actually in French, "vous" is the formal 'you' as well as the plural 'you'. Is "sibh" only formal or is it plural too? In which case its more like the Spanish "tu/ustedes" (informal/formal) versus "vosotros" (plural)
Sibh is both formal and plural.
I'm going to guess that fun is a more permanent state while grumpy is temporary?
Its different forms, like most languages. Spanish being tú or usted
Is the different pronunciation of 'sibh' between the whole sentence and the single word hint again a matter of different regional variants?
I see above that thu and sibh are informal and formal. Are they both always singular you?
Sibh can be either singular or plural.
Plural: I guess for both formal and informal?
So just like the French "vous" :)
Ya’ll is a proper plural form of you in the southern American dialect. Your marking it wrong, is incorrect. It is a contraction for “you all”.
I find it funny that someone is calling their "superior" grumpy :D
sibh is also plural, as well as formal. So the speaker could be talking to their siblings, kids, etc.
Oh yeah :D
