I seem to not understand lenitions as well as I thought. Do you lenite an adjective when it's applied to another word?


Attributive adjectives (e.g. a long skirt) lenite when they follow a feminine noun in the singular (e.g. as here, sgiort fhada (feminine), but còta fada (masculine)).

Predicative adjectives (e.g. a skirt is long) do not lenite, regardless of the gender or number of the noun - tha sgiort fada, tha còta fada, a skirt is long, a coat is long.
