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


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

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).
