"Labhraíonn an leon."
Translation:The lion speaks.
Is this a common construction? Do animals "speak" in Irish? Is this similar to asking someone, "What does the cat say"?
Jpenny73@yahoo.com would like to know more plz. Your links are not clickable :-(
I’ve just clicked on both of the links in my comment above, and they both go to their intended destinations. Have you tried clicking on them from a different device?
Does the same thing happen in a browser on a mobile? (I don’t have a mobile myself.)
I don't know. I just know I can't click on your links in the app. :( which makes me sad. I can do so, however, when I sign online on my laptop.
Yes. Dunno why lions are given such importance, never seen one in the gaeltacht. Maybe in mayo....
There used to be an extinct dog breed that was said to understand human speech but it's probably legends.
No the voice of Aslan in the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in the English film was definitely Liam Neeson .... !
You are right !! OK, you win this argument. Can I add you as a Duolingo friend and follow your progress ?? Eleven languages is impressive
TBH, it's basically only 8 languages - I studied French, German, and Spanish in high school and/or college, so I'm only trying to keep my skills fresh.
"......He says, right, that you—Simba, right? Yeah, that you've forgotten him and forgotten yourself—Look, I dunno why he's speaking Irish neither, but lucky for you I did Honours Irish on my Leaving Cert, so pay up, alright?"
is this pronunciation correct? I cant here the fada on the "i" sounds more like "labhraim" than "Labhraíonn"
This pronunciation is correct for this speakers dialect, but other Irish speakers do pronounce the word as written, with a fada on the "i" (in both "labhraím" and "labhraíonn").
The silly sentences make you think more about the costruction of the sentence thus learning.simple really
