"'S e buntàta a th' ann."

Translation:It is potato.

The English translation is rather weird. This is a potato, or these are potatoes is what you would hear. Never heard This is potato.


Yeah, I think you might. Imagine having a bowl of home made soup in front of you. You ask your host/ess what this piece of off-white cubed vegetable things is, and they say: it's potato There's a few contexts where what you are faced with is not A potato, nor is it potatoes. It's potato.


Definitely, this would be useful for explaining the ingredients of a dish.
