"You are not well-dressed, I am well-dressed!"

Translation:Chan eil thusa spaideil, tha mise spaideil!

February 20, 2020



Could someone clarify why 'is mise' is acceptable translation for 'I am' when introducing oneself but not accepted in this exercise please?


Why do you sometimes use tusa and not thusa?


You use tusa following words ending in s or ch. There may be other instances I've forgotten

For example 's tusa a tha spaideil (it basically means "you're posh").

If you find thusa hard to say in a sentence and tusa is easier, it probably means you should be using tusa


I choose to remember this new vocab word by thinking about how posh people wear spats


That's a great tip thanks
