  5. "Chan eil bò agam."

"Chan eil agam."

Translation:I do not have a cow.

why is it not "chan eil mi bò agam'?


"Agam" is already possessive "my/I have" so its not necessary to add "me/I" a second time plus chan eil mi=I am not. Chan eil mi bò agam would read "I am not cow I have". It should be chan eil bò agam=no cow I have".
