Scots Gaelic - To be an H or not to be an H
I (think) I know for example Dearg (red) is used with a masculine noun and Dhearg with feminine. Firstly, how do I know whether the noun is masculine or feminine and secondly why hasn’t the dictionary got a record for dearg. #FRUSTRATING
It seems to me that there are hints scattered all through the course as to what is masculine and what is feminine, I've not yet seen a bare list. If you listen carefully to the speakers you can usually tell if the h is there or not, and some of the multiple-choice questions give you both forms and if you choose the wrong one you soon know. Countries are nearly always feminine, they said. Trousers seem to be feminine (and quite right too).
I think the idea is to get the right adjectives associated with the right words by constant repetition rather than memorising them consciously or looking them up all the time. My guess anyway.
