This clicked for me once I started reading it a bit more literally, as in "is on him story to tell". Maybe that'll help someone else, too.
That is a help, thank you. please accept a lingot.
Why would "He must tell his story" be wrong?
I believe that that "He must tell his story" would be "Tá air a scéal a insint".
Here the "a" in "(scéal) a insint" is not his, but rather the way that one says "to tell (a story)".
Oh! I didn't notice that 'a' was after 'scéal'. Go raibh maith agat! :)
What is the purpose of the 'a' in this sentence?
I wrote “he has a story to tell” and then realised it was wrong. Would that be “Tá scéal a insint aige”, “tá aige scéal a insint", or what?
Why does 'scéal' come before 'insint'? I dont get the overall structure of this sentence. Please help!
please someone answer this question
Is "a" necessary because insint has a direct object? or for another reason?
