Gaelic Gàidhlig

Tha sinn fhathast a’ toirt sùil air rannan a nochdas anns an leabhar “Air do bhonnagan a ghaoil”, a chaidh fhoillseachadh an-uiridh le Acair. An t-seachdain seo, tha mi a’ dol a thoirt sùil air dà rainn. Seo a’ chiad tè, air a bheil “Aibidil”:

A airson Adhamh

Acrach sa ghàrradh.

B airson bealach

Bò chaol a’ tighinn gu baile.

C airson Cailean,

A cheann air cluasaig, ’s e na chadal

D airson dìgean,

Digearan a’ sgrìobadh

E airson Eachainn,

Air each geal a’ dol seachad.

F airson Fèis,

’S fear na fìdeig aic’ leis fhèin.

G airson Goraidh,

A ghoid aodach bean Sheonaidh.

Eadar Hiort is na Hearadh

Chailleadh Harry ’s an eathar.

Ann an Ì anns a’ chill

Rìghrean Alba aig sìth.

Tha siud gu leòr: tha sinn sgìth!

Nise seo rann cunntaidh.’S e an t-ainm a th’ air “Deich Balaich Bheaga Dhubha”:

Deich balaich bheaga dhubha

Nan suidhe muigh air being –

Thug an starrag leatha Seoc

’S cha robh ann ach naoi.

Naoi balaich bheaga dhubha

Nan suidhe muigh air tobht’ –

Thuit Fionn tro tholl nan cearc

’S cha robh ann ach ochd.

Ochd balaich bheaga dhubha

Ag iasgach le slait –

Ghoid na giomaich Fearchar

’S cha robh ann ach seachd.

Seachd balaich bheaga dhubha

Nan suidhe ’g ithe ’m biadh –

Thachd buntàta Coinneach crost

’S cha robh ann ach sia.

Sia balaich bheaga dhubha

A’ cur a-steach an fheòir –

Thuit a’ chruach air Ùisdean beag

’S cha robh ann ach còig.

Còig balaich bheaga dhubha

A’ seòladh ann an eathar

Shluig muc-mhara Donnchadh

’S cha robh ann ach ceithir.

Ceithir balaich bheaga dhubha

Nan cadal leis an sgìths –

Thuit Raghnall tron an leabaidh

’S cha robh ann ach trì.

Trì balaich bheaga dhubha

Ag ithe mìr is càis –

“Mar sin leibh,” thuirt Alasdair

’S cha robh ann ach dhà.

Dà bhalach bheag dhubh

A’ toirt a-steach a’ bhùirn –

Thuit Eachann dhan an tobair

’S cha robh ann ach aon.

Aon bhalach beag dubh

Na sheasamh ’s car na cheann –

Ruith esan a dh’Ameireagaidh

’S cha robh ’n còrr ann.

Ma tha sibh ag obair le cloinn, nach biodh e math an rann sin a chluich mar gheam, le deichnear cloinne, agus iad a’ falbh fear ma seach. Seo an rann a-rithist – agus bheir sin gu deireadh na Litreach sinn. Cuimhnichibh gun gabh an leabhar math brèagha seo ceannach. Dhèanadh e deagh phreusant co-là-breith!

Faclan na Litreach: giomaich: lobsters; cruach: haystack.

Abairtean na Litreach: a ghoid aodach bean Sheonaidh: who stole Seonaidh’s wife’s clothes; chailleadh Harry ’s an eathar: Harry and the boat were lost; ann an Ì anns a’ chill: in Iona in the church; rìghrean Alba aig sìth: kings of Scotland at rest; deich balaich bheaga dhubha:ten small black-haired lads; thug an starrag leatha Seoc: the crow took Jock with her; thachd buntàta Coinneach crost:a potato choked irritable Kenny; a’ cur a-steach an fheòir: putting in the hay; shluig muc-mhara Donnchadh: a whale swallowed Duncan; a’ toirt a-steach a’ bhùirn: taking in the water.

Puing-chànain na Litreach: Thuit Eachann dhan an tobair : Hector fell into the well. You might have expected dhan tobair or don tobair here, but in Ness and some other Gaelic-speaking areas the form is dhan an tobair. Similarly the Nisich say “dhan a’ bhaile” where many would say “dhan bhaile” or “don bhaile” . GOC II (the recently published Gaelic Orthographic Conventions) confirmed the legitimacy of representing it in this way in print.

Gnàthas-cainnt na Litreach: cha robh ’n còrr ann : there was nobody left.
