> However, the weather remains consistently feminine - "Tha i fuar...etc"
Tha ann an Innse Gall, ach chan eil anns an Eilean Sgitheanach!
It certainly is in the Western Isles, but the weather is masculine in
Skye. I found this out after I produced a demo multiple-choice Gaidhlig
test, which you'll find at:
One of the questions has the answer "Tha *i" briagh an-diugh", but the
Sgitheanaich started telling me that this was wrong. So I asked the
neighbours and found that they all say "Tha e briagh an-diugh".
I don't know how many other areas apart from Skye say "e" for the
weather. In Irish Gaelic the weather is masculine, but in Breton
it is feminine.
