I thought for "I want" you say "theastaigh...uaim" ??


There are a number of different ways to say "I want X", including both tá X uaim and teastaíonn X uaim, or, as galaxyrocker points out, táim ag iarraidh X in Connemara.

Some of the difference is due to dialect, and some is due to context. You can see a number of examples of how "want" can be used in the NEID.


or "bí rud éigin ag teastáil uaim"?
