How do I know when to use ith or ithe?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/silmeth

ith is the imperative form, meaning eat! as an order or instruction (ithibh in plural or in polite, ie. when speaking to multiple people or to someone older or a stranger).

ithe is the verbal noun, meaning (act of) eating, it’s used in constructions with the verbal noun, eg. tha mi ag ithe I am (at) eating.
