Why is this 'that boy' and not 'the boy'? Can anyone explain?
Because sin means that, those.
GRMA very much! I couldn't work it out at all.
Thanks, but in another version of this question, "The boy runs to her" is presented as the correct answer.
Yes! I got the last word! Didn't get the others but I got the last one! Had no idea what the sentence meant but I got the last word!
So it really sounds like she's saying "cuichi": does "ch" not sound lenited in some contexts and "c" sound lenited between vowels? The pronunciation's tricky.
''an'' & ''sin'' why are both words needed to say the same thing
It is the definite demonstrative, roughly.
The boy there, in Irish , approximates -that boy.
