* A bhanacharaid is a female form of the word friend (caraid) but it is rather old fashioned. A charaid is now widely used for addressing both males and females. * ’S e cruth boireann den fhacal “caraid” a th’ ann an A bhanacharaid ach tha e caran seann-fhasanta. Bithear gu tric a’ cleachdadh A charaid airson fireannaich ’s boireannaich a-nis.

If you would rather include the person’s name, you can use this. Nam biodh tu airson ainm an duine a chleachdadh, dh’fhaodar seo a chleachdadh.
