NOTAICHEAN GRÀMAIR

-amh vs -adh

The lady says a’ dèanadh rather than the more commonly heard a’ dèanamh*

 

Why?

 

Well, although this lady was born and brought up in Uist, she has links to the Isle of Mull.

 

She says: ’S ann aig mo sheanmhair ann am Muile a bha an crannachan a tha seo.

 

Mull is in Argyll, and in Argyll dialects of Gaelic, the verbal noun tends to end –adh rather than –amh.

 

Iùsaigeadh / cleachdadh

In the video clip, the lady uses two words which can be translated as “use” in English.

 

  1. Tha cuimhn’ agam mo mhàthair a bhith ga iùsaigeadh (an crannachan) nuair a bha sinn òg.

 

I remember my mother using it (the churn) when we were young.

 

  1. Bidh iad ag iùsaigeadh slige-chreachainn…ach ’s e sàsair a bh’ againne, ’s e a chleachd sinn a-riamh.

 

They use a scallop shell…but it was a saucer that we had, we always used it.

 

  • Ùisneachadh – is used in Lewis in a similar way to iùsaigeadh in Uist.

 

An t-uabhas

An t-uabhas (de) means an awful lot of

 

Dh’fheumadh tu an t-uabhas uachdair airson sin.

 

  • You needed an awful lot of cream for that. (for making butter)

 

Uimhir

Uimhir means quantity or number and is feminine. (It is often spelt uibhir)

 

 

When used in a grammatically negative sentence uimhir de : as much / as many

 

Chan eil uibhir sin de dh’uachdar ga chumail.

 

  • There’s not as much cream being kept.

 

When used in a grammatically positive sentence it means so much / so many:

 

Bha uibhir de dhaoine ann ’s gun robh an t-àite a’ cur a-mach air a bheul.

 

  • There were so many people there that the place was full to overflowing.
