After repeatedly listening to this audio I still cannot identify all the components of the sentence. There are options to play a slowed version of the audio on some DL courses. Is this an option in train for the Scottish Gaelic course? It would be a great help. Thank you for all the efforts by the volunteers. I'm really enjoying the course.
- A – interrogative particle, used to start questions (kinda like English do in do you like…?), it requires a dependent form of the verb,
- bheil – dependent form of bi; the independent form is tha, which means tha appears on its own, but bheil or eil (when it’s lenited) appear after particles requiring dependent form (like a bheil? or chan eil, nach eil?) – is,
- i – the feminine personal pronoun, referring to weather which is feminine in Gaelic – she,
- grianach – adjective, sunny,
- no – conjunction, or,
- sgòthach – adjective, cloudy
so literally: is she (ie. the weather) sunny or cloudy?
