Translation:They don't use the euro in England, they use the pound.
In English, that comma really ought to be a semicolon. Does anyone know if this rule is the same as Gaeilge?
Why is it i for sasana but sa for being in other countries? I guess definite article and so but is there a reason england doesnt get a definite article? Are there other countries that are indefinite?
There's 5 major countries that are indefinite:
- Éirinn (Éire sa gCaighdeán)
There are some other, smaller, ones that are also indefinite, however.
Is Meiricea a country or continent, (actually 2 continents)? Or does it refer to the U.S?
By itself it means the US. North and South America are Meiriceá Thuaidh and Meiriceá Theas.
I can't remember seeing Sasana before, so I'm just mentioning this here, does the name in Irish relate to the Anglo-Saxons? I know in a lot of rebel songs i listen to they refer to them as Saxons, so I figured that might be a correlation.
