i am scottish and would never call it a sweater. would always be sweatshirt. my answer with sweatshirt wasnt accepted
I'm also Scottish and I always want to say jersey or jumper.
Geansaidh is presumably from guernsay, a word at one stage used to describe a jumper traditionally worn by fishermen?
"gansey" is also commonly used in some areas of Scotland and Northern England
I've added it :)
mòran taing ! and i will be learning Geansaidh for future also. keep up the good work on this too I have learn't so much in the space of a month - way more than two years of high school and evening classes !!! whole of scotland is proud
Geansaidh is what we typically call a jumper?
Jumper, sweatshirt - all the same to me!
A Geansaidh is knitted out of wool, like jerseys, jumpers, sweaters and even guernseys. Sweatshirts are a different thing altogether!
Where is the designation of "you" in the recent lessons? It seems to be missing... or is it a part of "ort"?
Yes, I beleive ort is a "prepositional pronoun" meaning "on you"
Not a sweater in scotland, a jumper!
What would be : "HE has a sweater on" - "orro" ?!
