Why is there an "iad" here then? Wouldn't "is ainmhithe lachan" work? =/
Nope, sorry. The *pronoun should always be included.
Please correct me, if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty certain "iad" is a pronoun, not a preposition.
How would you say "The animals are ducks"?
"Is lachan iad na h-ainmhithe"
oh, i get it! It's of the structure "Ducks, they are animals.". Is this always how Irish structures these kinds of sentences? For example, am i correct when i say "is glasrai se brocaili"?
No, sorry. That would be "Is glasra [note the singular] é brocailí".
Noted. Go raibh maith agat!
