I tried the opening lyrics of "Mo ghile mear". Rejected.
Reference for those who have not heard it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxjvNUNXhkU
Quite a beautiful song indeed! :)
'Se mo laoch should be acceptable surely? (if only for the great 18th-century song by Seán Clarach)
Why isn't it "is mo laoch é"? Why are there 2 é's?
Because you must have a subordinate before a definite phrase in the copula.
I always had the trouble with the copulas. :(
I hear you. But galaxyrocker gives a good tip. I heard a rule re specification and general identification, maybe check that out re copula? Ádh mór.
