How would I say "You have a coat", instead of "you have a coat on"? I always thought "Tha xxx ort" could mean "you have a xxx", whether you're wearing it or not.
Tha còta ort = You have a coat on, as in you're wearing it (lit. A coat is on you)
Tha còta agad = You have a coat, but you're not necessarily wearing it (lit. A coat is at you)
'Tha còta agad'. Literally, ort means on you.
or 'Tha còta agaibh' is using formal 'you'.
'S e ur beatha!
I was given credit for "You have on a coat," but I want to say in America it is improper to split infinitives!
Improper perhaps, but not incorrect. I have no issue with it :)
?? I really need help understanding how you get you or i from this. I keep failing the lessons because of this
