In a previous question I translated "Ta... air" as "he is wearing", but it was marked wrong. The answer insisted upon was "He has a ... on." Yet here the more idiomatic "is wearing" is accepted even though there is no mention of the verb "caith". A little consistency would be appreciated.

The Irish course is still in beta for a good reason — so that such inconsistencies can be taken care of. Be sure to report problems whenever you find them, so that they can get fixed.

Confused, I used caitheann here but was marked wrong. If the English had been 'he wears' (rather than 'he is wearing') would 'caitheann' have been called for?
