"I am learning Gaelic, I need a dictionary."

Translation:Tha mi ag ionnsachadh Gàidhlig, feumaidh mi faclair.

March 23, 2020



I got as far as tha mi when my martini encumbered finger stumbled on to the check button.


How do I know when to use feumadh and when feumaidh?


I don't think "feumadh" is a word at all, is it?


dh’fheumadh e / am feumadh e would be the conditional/habitual past form: he would need, he used to need / would he need?, did he use to need?.

Or dh’fheumadh e / an do dh’fheumadh e? would be passive past: it was needed / was it needed?

But I don’t think these are forms that Duolingo teaches right now.


Definitely one for the more advanced classes!
