    Sgitheanach is right, except for the spelling error no-one has put right yet: "Leis a'claidheamh-mhr do dh'Alba". Actually, having said that, I'm not sure if "claidheamh" is feminine. If it is, you are right. Forgive my ignorance. BTW Sgitheanach is my Gaelic signature right? I hope so as I spent a while working it out. Tapadh leabh.

    "Leis am claideamh-mr do Alba"

    Tha mi a' smaoineachadh gu bheil

    "Leis a' chliadeamh-mhr do dh' Alba"

    nas fherr.

    I think the above is better.

    Hello!

    "The New English-Gaelic Dictionary", Derick. S. Thomson, Glasgow, Gairm Publications, 1986 9017710660x

    says that "sword" = "claideamh"

    and "claymore" = "claideamh-mor" (with the grave accent over the "o"

    To me, it looks as though your sentence is correct, but I hope a knowledgeable person will come along soon!

    Forgive me if I'm wrong but I was under the impression that claideamh is a sword and claideamh mr would be a big sword. Other than that I think the sentence is correct but once again, I could be terribly wrong. Sorry that I couldn't be much help.

    Gaelic sentence: is it correct?

    The following Gaelic sentence should say "with the claymore for Scotland".
    I want to know: is the grammar correct?
    "Leis am claideamh-mr do Alba!"

    I also want to know where can I get a Gaelic grammarbook?
