Can you tell me the difference in phiseag and piseagan
Piseagan is plural.
Piseag is singular.
Aon and dhà cause lenition (they give words an extra h) and also both use the singular.
So aon phiseag, dà phiseag, trì piseagan.
(This is in the course notes by the way)
Both one and two indicate using the singular form. Plurals kick in at three. Different than the way we do it. So phiseag is the (lenited) singular, used for one kitten and two kittens Piseagan is the plural, used for three and above.
Why would we use the singular phiseag when the translation is plural kittens?
Have a look at the grammar notes. They will help. :)
How can Piseagan AND phiseag both be plural i.e kittens!!! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh
They aren't but this has all been explained above.
