If you are Liam Neeson working with others to retrieve hostages, this sentence is very useful.
Actually, I read this and thought "story of my life".
As in "the hero gets the girl at the end of the movie",
I then got it wrong because I typed "I get the girl and the men" (self-correcting from "...and the guys", but neglecting to shift to the "woman" instead of the "girl" by which I actually meant the colloquial English for "woman" in these kinds of contexts.
I'm struggling to imagine the situation where you're useful /playground taunts...
So this verb means "get"... but get in what sense? The English word get has a lot of meanings...
Yes this word "get" seems to be a favorite of Duolingo and is used inappropriately Perhaps they need to do a Duolingo course in English !!
Come on folks, he says that "he got the woman and the men" out of danger after the lion ate all the children. Nothing to do with greed or black humour, but everyday business here. Such a sentence is useful!
That's what a slender r sounds like. Normally there'll be another word immediately after it, so you don't notice. For example, you probably don't notice it in this exercise with aimsir, but you can hear it when it's at the end of the sentence.
not if you're a native English speaker. This is no harder to guess than the word "higher"
You are right especially the last word which I cannot believe is how you pronounce" na fir".I shall check it on one of the pronunciation websites
Could this be "women"? It makes it look like the Spanish rule, (muchacha when you describe a room full of girls, then muchacho when one guy walks in) making it look like there is only one woman.
The situation here is different. "Faighim na mná agus na fir" means "I get the women and the men".
I find this pronunciation nothing like it reads I cant hear the an or the fir or the na or the faighim. Is this the proper received pronunciation ???? or is my hearing going ???
I could follow this pronunciation which was much clearer than the same sentence earlier
This verb "faigh" can also mean "find" or "discover" which would make more sense in this context. Don't misspell Faighim by one letter or the ladies will get extremely upset !!! So will the Holy Father !!
I attempted "I collect" instead of "I get". Got marked incorrect. I'm not entirely satisfied with this.
