"How many cars?"
Translation:Cò mheud càr?
Cia mheud? - How many?
This is how we ask "how many" in Gaelic. Unlike in English, when we ask this in Gaelic we use the singular form of the noun?
bàta - boat
bàtaichean - boats
Cia mheud bàta? - How many boats?
A common alternative to cia mheud is cò mheud which means the same thing and occurs later on in the course.
That was pretty easy. COUNT yourselves lucky...tha mi duilich (I am sorry).
No. Singular stays for one and two. Plural starts 3 + onwards. the "h" is lenition. Aon (one) and Dà (two) triggers lenition. Plural of càr is càraichean. So you have aon chàr, dà chàr, trì càraichean. It is in the tips. You need to use the web Duolingo, because the mobile app does not show the notes. (Notes are available for every unlocked section (bubble).
