          Hi Lowlander! Me desertrose! I was excited to find this thread as hopefully there will be beginners like myself on here. I was thrilled to find the site http://www.bbc.co.uk/scotland/alba, etc. on here as I am hoping to begin the lessons to learn Gaelic now. I also found a book today "Gaelic for Beginners" on The Scottish Lion website, so I bought it and hopefully it will have pronunciation as well!

          I want to know what Alba means. I thought it was a musical band that you liked (LOL!) and when I got in that site you mentioned, I see the word Alba all over! I guess I misunderstood! You must think I am a goofy American!

          Okay! I will close. oidche mhath

                How does anybody expect to learn anything if they don't ask questions?

                The only stupid question is the one which isn't asked.

                  Thank you for your kindness and patience, Neil. I am sure I will have plenty more stupid ones to ask so hope you can continue. I am very, very new at the Gaelic language, but want to learn so badly. I have also been trying to learn Irish but nobody seems to be able to agree how to pronounce the words. In fact, I asked how to pronounce a word and everybody had different opinions because there are about 5 different dialects in Ireland and they all got mad at each other and now one person is leaving the site because of it, all because I asked this one question. I felt so bad.

                  Many thanks again. Would write that in Gaelic, but don't know how.
