It's going to be strange to remember this one because it sounds like "big".
Still gets me every time. I haven't got it wrong yet but every time I have to stop and think, "beag (big) means small and mòr (more) means big because more is bigger than just big"
beag is the new small
lol I just forget all English for a second and be like "wait what?"
Tha is "is"? So we're literally saying "Is Anna small." ?
"Your question is my statement."

Yes, it's this langage word order.
Sometimes you have to put words in different places so you dont get mixed up with other sentences that sound the same.
How about that. Beag sounds like big, but actually means small.
In Irish: Tá Anna (or Áine) beag
Funny enough, I have a teacher from Munster who says “athá” a lot which sounds similar to “tha”
In welsh small is 'bach'. Must be related.
I'm taking the Welsh course too and yeah, a lot of similarities in words just differing pronunciations.
What is tha there for?
"Tha" is the verb. Here it would be translated as "is".
Its for is, but its really is anna big....its like a statement
Beag and mòr remind me of the beautiful old Irish song 'Si Bheag, Si Mhor'.
So why does the question have tha as the first word and when i type it back like that its wrong and moved to the middle of the sentence?
