Sorry to have caused confusion. Three months on it seems to me that is it obviously the correct answer - and I cannot even remember how I came to question it.
Why are words like ort and àrd sometimes pronounced by the speaker with an added s/sh sound?which is correct?
Why is 'you' used here?
Because 'ort' means 'on you'. So 'Chan eil cota orm' would be 'I do not have a coat on', 'Chan eil cota oirre' - 'She does not have a coat on' etc.
Thanks for your reply.
Very helpful, thanks, was about to ask the same question.
