Q is for Question
One of the first questions Gaels ask when they meet a friend is “Ciamar a tea the?” [KIH-mar uh HAH oo], How are you? One might answer “Glè math!” [GLAY VAH], Very good! Ceist [KAYSHT] is the Gaelic word for question.
Q Comme question
L’une des premières questions que les Gaëls posent lorsqu’ils rencontrent un ami est << Ciamar a tha thu? >> [QUIH-mar ah HAH ou] ou << comment vas-tu? >> Une rèsponse à cette question pourrait être <<Glè mhath! >> [GLÈ VAH] ou << très bien! >> Ceist [QUAI-ISHT] est le mot gaèlque pour << question>>.
