"Isn't it a good day today?"
Translation:Nach e latha math a th' ann an-diugh?
I asked myself the same question, and indeed had reported it as a should-be-accepted answer, until I suddenly realised that our joint attempts omitted the "a th' ann" at the end. That's the good reason our answers were preperly rejected. I wish I knew how to withdraw my report!
Yes it is utterly ridiculous that they do not tell us this at the beginning. The original design was that there was a button you could press to see the notes but this does not work in the app for any of the recently written courses. The link above is actually an unofficial workaround, but it is better, IMO, as you get all the notes together.
I often find, having built a sentence, that I need to read it over to myself in Gaelic to find out if it "sounds right". Could there be a button added to exercises like this so that a "native speaker" voice could read the sentence for me? Then I'd have a better feel for how it sounds and whether or not it makes aural sense.
I have tried the TTS in the Welsh course. Tons of technical problems and words that don't sound right at all. For the word hwyl no one can make out the h. Different people hear p, ch, t. Definitely go for the real voices. And the added bonus of hearing different dialects makes this a really useful resource for those who already have reasonable Gaelic.
The technical issue with one person reading the whole sentence is that while it is quite easy to get someone to read the correct sentence, it is impossible to record all the possible wrong sentences that you might compose. And it would be cheating if it just read out the right one.
There are two verbs 'to be' in Gaelic, but unfortunately neither of them can be used with a noun complement in a straight-forward way. In other words, if there is a noun immediately after the verb in English it cannot be translated directly.
You can say
Nach eil i na latha math an-diugh?
but that very common structure had not been introduced yet as it is a wee bit complicated - so I don't know if it had been added to the list of acceptable answers.
