"Tha Catrìona gu math slaodach."

Translation:Catriona is really slow.

February 17, 2020



I'm curious. Does this mean slow as in velocity and/or slow as in intellect? Moran taing.


I'm not sure. I think it's just movement. There are other words for slow of thought people, like mosgaideach. What I'm unsure of is that I thought 'gu math' could be used as 'rather' as in she's rather slow for a similar meaning.


Why does it sound like the speaker is saying 'flaodach'?
