The problem here is that the speaker seems to repeat "Tha" so it sounds like "ha ha i ..."

Can gorach also be translated as silly?

Strange pronunciation of 'i'. Sounded like eye-ee. Threw me completely

Tha tha eye gorach to me! First time ever heard that!

'i' and 'e' sound the same

I've seen this statement 3 x now, and no mention of another gender of gormlessness... Just saying.

I'm not sure what you're trying to suggest. The sentences are randomly generated - we can't guarantee you'll see them all. For what it's worth, here are the four sentences attached to 'gòrach':

  • Tha mi cho gòrach.
  • Tha i gòrach.
  • Tha thu gòrach Iain.
  • Tha e gòrach.

Make of that what you will.

I think it is gu math OBVIOUS that the sentences are generated randomly. Some are glè ghòrach. :)
