"Salted gannet is tasty."
Translation:Tha guga blasta.
how can 'salted' gannet just be guga: where's the adjective 'salted gone?
Correct. There has been a lot of argument on other questions but you never say salted gannet. It can't be because they go on a guga hunt and you can't hunt salted gannet!
In fact it means gannet chick but it is never translated as there is no other word for a gannet chick. You just say guga in English.
It is one of the most common words in Gaelic, especially for any sentence in the present tense, so it is not easy to give a full list, and it does not match up exactly, but basically it means 'is, are, am' and like all verbs in Gaelic it goes at the beginning.
