"I like cake."
Translation:Is toil leam cèic.
Can't agree less. Is math leam is used and found in Gaidhlig, less so than toigh/toil, and if you get around to reading poetry, it will be found too. Gaedhlig Thir Chonaill is very close to Gaidhlig, sharing many features of grammar, words and some rare isoglosses. Be careful of hard and fast rules concerning what is what, though spelling conventions do help, and standard Irish is of no use as a source of comparison. Just a quick example, I say, for 'was not' Cha rabh, which for all intents and purposes sounds like, Cha robh, which is most unlike the Standard Irish ni raibh (fada on the ni).
