"Chan eil iad ag iarraidh not."

Translation:They do not want two pounds.

I love this fast speaker. I mean - I hate it, but it pushes me a lot and that's a good thing. She's really hard to follow, I usually have to play it multiple times. But that's good because it's getting me to where I feel more confident that I could handle a real native speaker.

They are not wanting is not the correct use. It should be they do not want, not wanting


Why doesn't "not" have lenition (I think it's what you call it)? Isn't it two? I don't get it... D,:
