This is somewhat confusing. I don't think the lesson covered "muid" at any point. But apparently Taimid is just the contracted form of Ta muid?
What lesson? Where do I find lessons?
This is the first time I've seen muid as well. In workouts or lessons (I'm coming from a workout).
Why "siad" and not "sibh"?
sibh is a 2nd person plural pronoun - "you" plural.
siad is a 3rd person plural pronoun - "they".
i've been looking for a response like this.
when is it tá siad and when is is tá tú?
siad is the 3rd person plural - "they".
tú is the 2nd person singular - "you".
Where are the lessons?
How is "Siad" pronounced?
At the top of this screen there is a little
Shad or [ʃad]
Just listen to the exercise above - click on the blue speaker.
You can also hear it in the exercise Tá siad, or in the Pronunciation Database at teanglann.ie.
Is "Ta muid" simply an alternate spelling for "Taimid"?
Not necessarily an alternate spelling, but an alternate form. Not all dialects contract the verbs in the first person singular and plural tenses. Munster does (actually, they contract in more tenses than that), but Connacht and Donnegal Irish don't.
please don't ask what we've not learned. Thanks.
On any smart or android phone just keep finger pressed down on a letter and it will display a menu of accents and you'll see the letter with the fada normally third or second from right.
How can I get fadas on my phone?
If you have a touchscreen phone, usually, you just long press the letter and the letters with fadas are available.
what's the difference between
siad and iad?
sé, sí and siad are the subjects of a verb, but they are not used with the copula.
é, í and iad are used everywhere else except as the subject of an active verb.
