Is "Tá uisce agat." the same as "Tá uisce agat?" The first is a statement and the second is a question.
Am I just not far enough in my learning to know the difference?
No. To ask a question, you have to put the interrogative particle an before the verb. Because tá is an irregular verb, the question form is an bhfuil.
An bhfuil uisce agat? - "do you have water?"
Like English in Irish we dont imply questions by tone like romanic langauges
In questiond you can normally say an bhfuil before the sentence
Eg. an bhfuil uisce agat?
an bhfuil to ceart go leoir?
Why isn't it "Tá agat uisce."
Because gaelic sentence structure is different to English. Gaelic stucure is Verb>Object.
Why To uisce agat?
