I'm still struggling to understand when to use an, am or na

  • am is only used when the next word starts with b/p/m/f.
  • na is plural (or feminine genitive singular, but I don't think that's included in the course yet).
  • a' is used when the following consonant is lenited (in the nominative singular that's with feminine nouns e.g. a' bhò "the cow", a' choille "the forest"; in the dative this happens to masculine and feminine nouns e.g. air a' bhòrd "on the table")
  • otherwise an is used
