Ann am vs ann an, how you know when to use


You use ann am before (not lenited) b, p, m, f, ie. the labial consonants. It’s the same kind of assimilation as the prefix in- (eg. indistinguishable) changing to im- in immortal, impossible, etc.

Only in Gaelic F is also considered a labial consonant (as historically it used to be pronounced using both lips, like P, and not upper teeth and lower lip as English F).
