    Sorry to have to admit that I don't understand your native tongue (!), but welcome from a Scotsman living in middle England.

    The Gaidhlig is hardly native to me! My wife I and started learning about 9 months ago, and it's, well... both backward and sideways in it's construction compared to English! But we are very much enjoying learning to speak it. Here in Tulsa, we are fortunate enough to have an active Club called Gaidhlig 918 with some 70 members that meats several times per month to help learn it.

    Amazing! It is remarkable that there is that level of interest!

    Mine too! A strange hybrid thing, my accent.

    If I'm around Southerners or especially West Virginians it's easy to start going down that slippery slope.

    About the Gaelic, oddly enough it was offered for a time at the Uni I attended so I have a smattering of 30-year-old University Gaelic.

    Another odd thing was that the teacher wasn't Scottish, but Welsh! But he could speak Irish and Scottish Gaelic fluently, I've seen him hanging out with Scots and he got on just fine, it seemed to me. From a linguistic point of view it was cool to have insights coming from somebody fluent in both Goidelic and Brythonic languages.

    Yes, it would seem that our antecedents have quite productive!
