One of the most iconic things about Scotland is their rich and beautiful culture. This includes many aspects, including language.
But as much as they are proud to speak their own dialect, words grow funny when translated from Gaelic to English. And that’s what makes them so hilarious! We’ve dug up some tweets with some really good examples for you to enjoy below:
“My sister just got pregnant because I didn’t want her getting wasted at
A long, hoarse “ooh!” echoes in the room as I stare at my latest purchase.
I just bought a paperweight from the store and it was only six dollars which is an absolute steal considering how heavy this thing feels. It has to be made out of solid rock or something like that because I can barely lift it with both hands. Plus, there’s no way someone would pay more than ten bucks for this piece of rubbish – what are they thinking? One glance at the price tag confirms my suspicions: one hundred percent bargain priced on clearance.
So many people have been coming up to me today asking if these were men’s clothes but honestly..would you really buy anything here if you weren’t a dude?
I’ve realized that I have no idea how to tie an ascot.
I’m not sure what’s more difficult: trying to cook with these tiny little pans or finding the right pan at all, because they’re just in such weird places. All of my pots and pans are mixed together so it’ll take me forever to find whatever it is I need for any given recipe. Two hours later, I still can’t figure out where anything is – this was such a bad purchase! (Which might be why most of the kitchen utensils are on clearance too.)
It should be illegal for people like him to exist outside of fiction– he makes life seem so much worse than it actually is by simply existing.
The more I think about it, the less sense this whole thing makes– and he’s just a kid! Why is he so involved in all of these grown-up things? It’s not right.
I’m sorry but if you can’t handle me at my worst then you don’t deserve to be around me at my best. We’re always going to have our bad days; they happen to everyone sometimes. But that doesn’t mean we should let those who are only there for us when everything is perfect walk away from us because their feelings get hurt over little things like getting into arguments or fighting with friends on occasion..they shouldn’t have been there in the first place if they didn’t want anything real anyway
– “It’s pronounced ‘gay’ not ‘jay.’ It’s the Irish word for happy. I have a friend named Eamon. His name is pronounced like, errmahhnn to sound more American. But he hates it when people call him that.”
– “I’m sorry but what? Where does Gaelic come into this?”
– “Gaelic boy names are so weird”
One of my students had an exam today and was stressing about his new assignment because he didn’t know any words in Gaelic to use as examples..i did tell him just make up some stuff though.
– “‘She never told me she loved me,’ Jack
– “Ciaran Brennan: just be happy with it. It is a great name.”
-“Inisde me, I’m crying” – On the Name Cian
– “Gaelic is the worst language ever”
– “My boyfriend’s name is Ciara and he says it sounds like a girl’s name but I’m just not convinced. He means Ciaran, right?”
This Funny Tweets About Gaelic Boy Names blog post has been created to educate people about some funny tweets about girls names that are also popular in Ireland or Scotland. The first story shows how people might react if they didn’t know what Gaelic was before hearing the boy’s name of Eamon. There are other stories talking about an exam question where no words for examples were found in Gaelic as well as someone who thinks that Gaelic is one of the worst languages around! One tweet that isn’t funny but still worth noting is about the difficulty of finding a computer in Gaelic.
I’m writing this on my iPad and it’s too hard to type words like ‘Gaelic’ or ‘Ciaran’. I just can’t do it.
This blog post has been created for fun, to show some light hearted stories around Gaelic names and how they are perceived by people who either know what Gaelic is (and think its great!) or don’t have any idea at all before hearing these moments. The next story is one tweet from someone who likes their boyfriend’s name Ciaran except he means Chris! It might not be as common an issue if more stores had Gaelic signage!
I’m starting to like my boyfriends name Ciaran until I realised he means Chris.
The next tweet is about the difficulties of finding a computer in Gaelic. It’s great that students can learn it, but there is definitely room for improvement when it comes to access and understanding. When you are learning something new, its always best if whats on your screen has what you’re reading how frustrating would this be? We hope all these will help people understand why an estimated 500 million people speak Gaelic around the world despite being one of the few who do not themselves know any words from our language!
I couldn’t find a laptop with /Gaelg/ as OS.You have to go into settings and change it manually.WiFi in my hotel is not available, can I get a Gaelic keyboard?I’m sorry we don’t provide that service!” 🙁
Ah right, of course. That’s what the language option was for on your laptop you’re trying to access google docs with an English keyboard!! We’ll be back soon! Tune in next week as we continue exploring how our old languages are changing day by day 🙂 (sorry about all this typing!) Save changes Preview Cancel Changes successfully saved.
