  5. "A happy person."

"A happy person."

Translation:Duine sona.

January 8, 2020



I notice that in this sentence the adjective comes after the noun, but in other sentences, eg Calum is as tired as an old dog, we should say "seann chù". Is there a rule governing the word order of the noun and adjective?


We can find explanation in Tips 'n Notes, in "Sayings" chapter, here : https://duome.eu/tips/en/gd


Is toilichte accepted for this? I tried it and got it wrong but i might have spelt it wrong so i am not sure


I put toilichte and it was accepted


What is the difference between "sona" and "toilichte"? I'm asking because sometimes words that mean the same general thing have subtle distinctions, and I am just wondering.
