I think I am totally confusing myself.
Is there an easy way to know when a sentence structure is VOS versus VSO?
Just when I think I’m getting the hang of Irish sentence structure, I swap the order. :(
right!? i could have sworn this sentence was marked correct in an earlier exercise when i wrote caitheann geansaí an buachaill agus caitheann gúna an cailín... ugh.
Why isn't "cailín" lenited in that case?
both buachaill and cailin are masculine
Cailín is masculine?
Me, Irish: what on earth is a sweater
How is cailín a masculine noun?
One of the oddities of Irish is that the word cailín is masculine! ( I got caught by this AGAIN ).
Why is boy and girl not lenited?!
No lenition of masculine nouns in the nominative case, as I understand.
Why is it necessary to repeat the verb "caitheann"? My answer "Caitheann an buachaill geansaí agus an cailín gúna." was not accepted.
Why does that not mean that the boy wears both a geansaí and the cailín gúna?
Fadas in Duolingo: Alt +160 = á, Alt +130 = é, Alt + 161 = í, Alt + 162 = ó & Alt + 163 = ú. In Microsoft, Ctrl + ' then type vowel.
