    Mise, will you be in Las Vegas for business or pleasure? Would be great to have a chat while you're here if scheduals permit.

    Hi deblang
    I'm in CA lecturing and I make a side trip to LV each time I'm over and will probably stay in Planet Hollywood.

    Actually I'm being sarcastic.
    The person who purported to speak garlic was stupid!

    I have been called many things in my life but never 'stupid' first time for everything !!

    I would have thought that the next to garlic would have shown it to be a joke...

    I think you will find it was a pun - a play on words - and quite a funny one too!

    I can accept being wrong, but I think here we might have to differentiate between native and non-native speakers of the language - for the latter Gaelic is more likely what they are going to type/say! Its always good to have these things explained though isn't it?

    You could be wrong!
    Native speakers don't like to use the word Gaelic as it's pronounced gaylick
    whereas we pronounce our own language gahleek.

    I thought Gaelic was the anglicised version of Gaeilge (Irish Gaelic) or Gaidhlig (Scottish Gaelic)? As far as I am concerned, when talking/writing in English you would use Gaelic, but if speaking Gaelic you would use the appropriate version depending on whether you were speaking Irish or Scottish Gaelic! However, I could be VERY wrong!

    Hi deblang
    I hope to be in LV either in Dec. or Jan. Final arrangements haven't been made yet.
    If you would like to meet up I can help you with your Gaidhlig. [Gaelic is Irish!]

    Hi deblang and welcome to the funfair that is scotland.com!

    Good luck with learning Gaelic by the way. I was never good at languages at school so I fear that any attempts I make to learn Gaelic would be a waste of time. However I have picked up a few phrases along the way. Are you learning it as a written or spoken language? The problem with the latter of course is finding someone to speak it to - even here in Scotland!

    Hello from Las Vegas

    Hi. I actually joined this forum a month or so ago and am just now getting around to saying "Hi" to everyone!
    I've wanted to see Scotland for some time now and will eventually make it there, I hope!! When I decided to learn a foreign language a few months ago, of course I chose Scottish Gaelic. Why? Why not!! I've joined a few forums (most pertaining to the language), but this one is by far the most "entertaining".
