Nope. You need the sé in this sentence, because it's what signifies the "he".
Is "he" implied in the verb? Just saying "Ólann" to say "he drinks" or "she drinks" is ambiguous, but is it still grammatically incorrect? (I'm thinking about how one drops the pronoun in Spanish, e.x. "bebe" for he/she drinks.)
Irish is not a pro-drop language, no. You need the pronoun to indicate who is doing the action. Dropping the pronoun (note: this doesn't happen in the mé and muid (and other forms, in Munster Irish) - you merely are using a synthetic form that still encodes the pronoun) is not allowed in Irish.
Saying ólann would be the equivalent of saying "drinks"
Same here. Im 99.7 percent irish. I even perfected my accent. The catch is I was born in Iowa. #lesbianwashere.
No. "Ólann sé." is just "He drinks".. For example, you could say "Óleann sé usice gach lá", meaning "He drinks water every (gach) day (lá)." If you wanted to say "He is drinking", you would use the form "Tá sé ag ól."
This is the third time the app has told me "Oops, that is not correct" when I've typed exactly what's been said. The correction matches what I've typed!! At first I thought maybe it was because I left out the full stop...but no!! Confused!
I know this is not the correct place to address this. But in the "report a problem" section there is no link for " I have lost my assist letters with fadas. How can I correct this?
