This is confusing. AFB defines dealanaich as a verb meaning "lighten, flash, electrify." For lightning, it gives the masculine noun "dealanach." Is this some kind of alternate spelling not found in the dictionary?

Why is this not "Seo dealanaich a-nis"?

Because that would be "this is lightning now."
