OMG I LOVE THIS LINE!
okay good, i'm not the only one then
Was the chicken a gift maybe? Christmas? Birthday?
Is the omission of 'a' before 'athair' simply because 'athair' begins with an 'a'? All the other 'Thankyou [mother/brother/sister etc] sentences have 'a' before the noun.
It’s because athair begins will a vowel and Gaelic vowels from separate words do not like hanging out together. More on this in the grammar notes - https://duome.eu/tips/en/gd
When do you say "leat" vs "leabh"? Im confused
Leat for familiar people (brother, sister, friend). Leibh to be polite and to your elders (father, mother, teacher etc).
Also, "leibh" is for multiple people, like
"Tapadh leibh Eilidh agus Anndra"
"Thank you Eilidh and Andrew"
My brain goes to "Chicken!" as in take out, wings, etc. How would one say that?
I know leadh is for polite speech and to elders, but why is it used hear with athair and not with sheanair as per a previous translation?
