Sgrìobhadh breithneachail sa Ghàidhlig:
pàtranan agus atharrachaidhean

Wilson McLeod

’S i a’ Bheurla prìomh chànan sgrìobhaidh bhreithneachail air litreachas na Gàidhlig, ged a tha sgrìobhaidhean sa Ghàidhlig a’ fàs nas cumanta agus nas cudromaiche san aonamh linn fichead. Chaidh an dà-theangachas (diglossia) seo a stèidheachadh sa naoidheamh linn deug agus a dhaingneachadh bho na 1920an air adhart. Tha am pàtran soilleir ri fhaicinn sna sgrìobhaidhean breithneachail aig dithis shàr-sgrìobhadairean Gàidhlig, Iain Mac a’ Ghobhainn/Iain Crichton Smith agus Ruaraidh MacThòmais/ Derick S. Thomson: cleachd iad an ainm Beurla airson sgrìobhaidhean breithneachail sa Bheurla agus an ainm Gàidhlig airson sgrìobhaidhean breithneachail sa Ghàidhlig, ach ’s i a’ Bheurla a chleachd iad airson cha mhòr a h-uile aiste fhada a sgrìobh iad.1

Thar beagan bhliadhnaichean tha mi air mòr-liosta a chur ri chèile de sgrìobhaidhean breithneachail air litreachas Gàidhlig an fhicheadamh agus an aonamh linn fichead. Thèid a foillseachadh air-loidhne an lùib a’ ghoireis ùir litreachas.com aig Comhairle nan Leabhraichean. Uile-gulèir, tha còrr is 1,020 leabhar, aiste no lèirmheas air an liosta, le còrr is 300 ùghdar. Dhiubh sin, tha mu 80% de na sgrìobhaidhean sa Bheurla, 17%

1 A’ coimhead air sgrìobhaidhean air litreachas Gàidhlig an fhicheadamh linn a-mhàin, chithear gun do sgrìobh ‘Mac a’ Ghobhainn’ co-dhiù 13 aistidhean no lèirmheasan sa Ghàidhlig ach nach robh ach aon dhiubh nas fhaide na ceithir duilleagan a dh’fhaid (Mac a’ Ghobhainn, 1983–4). Sgrìobh ‘Smith’ co-dhiù 67 aistidhean no lèirmheasan sa Bheurla agus bha 8 dhiubh nas fhaide na deich duilleagan a dh’fhaid. Sgrìobh ‘MacThòmais’ co-dhiù 29 aistidhean no lèirmheasan sa Ghàidhlig ach cha robh ach a dhà dhiubh nas fhaide na ceithir duilleagan a dh’fhaid (MacThòmais, 1971, 1982). Sgrìobh ‘Thomson’ co-dhiù 36 aistidhean no lèirmheasan sa Bheurla agus bha 12 dhiubh nas fhaide na deich duilleagan a dh’fhaid.
