12mh no 12na?[deasaich an tùs]

Nach bu chòir seo a bhith 12na linn - "an dàrna linn deug"? --Thrissel (talk) 12:39, 28 dhen Chèitean 2012 (UTC)[reply]

[1] This link favors "-mh" for all numbers. Breckenheimer (talk) 22:12, 30 dhen Chèitean 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Which makes it suspicious - it has 1mh & 2mh - for one thing, GOC has 1d, 2na/2ra, for a second, English doesn't have 1th & 2th either. --Thrissel (talk) 22:46, 30 dhen Chèitean 2012 (UTC)[reply]

While we're at it another thing I'm curious about is how to pronounce, years like, say "1986". If it starts will "mil...", would it be correct to write "ann am 1986" instead of "ann an 1986"? Breckenheimer (talk) 02:22, 31 dhen Chèitean 2012 (UTC)[reply]

It doesn't start with "mil...". For 1986 you say naoi ceud deug ceithir fichead 's a sia (or naoi ceud deug ochdad 's a sia), literally "nine hundred -teen...". Alternatively you can use anns a' bhliadhna naoi ceud deug..., but I suppose that "anns a' bhliadhna 1986" would go against Wikipedia's philosophy of succinctness. --Thrissel (talk) 10:22, 31 dhen Chèitean 2012 (UTC)[reply]
