Wonderful. Brilliant. Is there really a difference?

It saves the contributors from adding "wonderful" to every sentence with "sgoinneil". Unfortunately, it all has to be done by hand

I put 'splendid' as that was what I was taught in a Gaelic class and I was marked wrong

When I was a kid, that would have been "I have the Gaelic."

Yes it comes from the Gaelic "Tha a' Ghàidhlig agam". For some reason they have decided to leave out the usual article in the Gaelic too. It's not wrong but...
