Gaelic verb conjugation: I

Verbs are used to describe actions. Verbs in Gaelic can use the verb 'to be' as an auxiliary verb. Only the verb 'to be' is conjugated. The linking word 'a'' is used between the verb 'to be' and the main verb. This is similar to the structure in English with 'I am eating' or 'They are singing' etc.


Tha mi ag iarraidh an leabhair
I want the book
Tha mi a' dùnadh
I close
Tha mi a' bruidhinn
I speak
Tha mi a' toirt...
I take
Tha mi a' cluinntinn
I hear
