"Tha mi a' faicinn an duine agam."

Translation:I am seeing my husband.

Agam is aig+me(at+me) indicating possession of something.


Not really. Agam is I have, so in this context it's the (an) husband (duine) I have (agam).


I don't think I've seen agam used like this before. To me this looks like it would be 'I am seeing I have a husband'. Is the 'tha' part being gone what changes it to my? Like, 'Tha cat agam' would be 'I have a cat' but just 'Cat agam' would be 'My cat'?


I think its more "I am seeing the husband I have"
