Tinycard deck: Irish Verbs Present 3
I saw a request for more Irish Tinycard decks, and since it doesn't seem like the Duolingo folks will be able to get to that any time soon, I thought I would create some more. I just added Irish Verbs Present 3
I would be grateful to anyone who takes a look at the deck and lets me know if I have made any errors or if you have suggestions.
Iontach! go raibh maith agat! I take it you have used the root form of the verbs in each case?
I have a vague recollection that there might be at least one exercise in Duolingo that translates "aontaigh" as "unite", but the only ones that I can find at the moment use the much more common translation of "agree":
Aontaíonn sí le m'athair - https://www.duolingo.com/comment/10932386
Ní aontaíonn Uachtarán na Fraince liom - https://www.duolingo.com/comment/4680806
Níor aontaigh mé leis - https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24455549
Ar aontaigh sibh é le chéile? - https://www.duolingo.com/comment/6257315
Words with more than one legitimate translation will always present a problem for a flashcard stack, but if you can only have one translation, "agree" might be more useful.
Edit: - I found the exercise that uses "aontaigh" as "unite":
"D'aontaíomar an chathair" - https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5081317
On the issue of two translations for one word, I just tried the 2nd stack, which offers two translations for "tairg" ("produce" and "manufacture"). Leaving aside the question of whether "manufacture" is really a good translation, the 2nd half of the stack wants you to type in "produce" when prompted to translate "manufacture", and vice-versa.
I have added "agree" to "aontaigh", and removed "manufacture" from "táirg".
I remember running into the issue about translating between words on the back of the card when I first created some decks. I will see if I can find a way to prevent that. I think a lot of words would benefit from having several translations.
