5.3.3 Faclan-iasaid Ghàidhlig sa Bheurla

Tha a h-uile cànan a’ gabhail a-steach faclan à cànanan eile. Tha tòrr fhaclan sa Ghàidhlig a thàinig on Bheurla ach tha beagan ann a chaidh an rathad eile. Seo cuid aca. Tha an fheadhainn seo a’ buntainn ri cruth na tìre ann an Alba:

  • ben (beinn)
  • brae (bràigh)
  • corry (coire)
  • glen (gleann)
  • loch (loch).

Seo faclan a’ buntainn ri cultar na Gàidhlig:

  • caber (bho ‘cabar’).
  • ceilidh
  • clan (bho ‘clann’)
  • galore (‘gu leòr’)
  • slogan (bho ‘sluagh-ghairm’)
  • sporran (sporan)
  • whisky (bho ‘uisge-beatha’)

Bidh na h-eisimpleirean seo air an toirt seachad uaireannan ach chan eil e idir cinnteach gur ann on Ghàidhlig a thàinig iad:

  • grotty (bho ‘grod’)
  • smashing (bho ’S math sin)
  • shoot (bho siuthad)
  • twig (bho tuig)!
