"Speak slower, friend."
Translation:Bruidhinn nas slaodaiche, a charaid.
I would like to see all choices end in "a caraid" because that forces me the user to focus on the 1st part of the sentence which is the part i am trying to learn. Otherwise i "cheat" and select the only option with a charaid at end. I have same comment when proper names are used. If duolingo gives same name in all options user would be forced to focus on learning the remainder. Thnks kim
Oh, hey! Sorry, I've only just seen this, but it's a good question.
In short: no. The word "a' bruidhinn" (speaking ) is what we call a verbal noun. Then you have the word "bruidhinn!" (speak! ) which is the imperative form of the same noun (i.e. the form you use when giving orders).
With many nouns, the verbal noun form and the imperative form are very similar, as with "a' bruidhinn"/"bruidhinn".
|ruith! run!||a' ruith running|
|òl! drink!||ag òl drinking|
|leum! jump!||a' leum jumping|
But not always. Sometimes the imperative form has a suffix added:
|ith! eat!||ag ithe eating|
|èist! listen!||ag èisteachd listening|
|creids! listen!||a' creidsinn believing|
|seòl! sail!||a' seòladh sailing|
There are dozens of patterns that nouns can follow to form the verbal noun from the imperative, so I've only listed a few. But you don't really need to memorise them; there are so many that I'm not sure it would be beneficial. You're better off just learning the forms as you go :)
(There's also the issue of dialectal differences when forming the verbal noun. Some people will form certain words in different ways e.g. for the noun "lean" (follow ), some people say a' leantainn and some say a' leantail.)
