Are you saying you are a 'strong "slip" of a girl' because 'you, like, "fall?"'
In the answer, why is it ''fomhar'' & not '' fomhair''
Why do you think that it should be fomhair?
Apart from your missing fada, the Irish for "autumn" is fómhar
I think fómhar is the nominative and fómhair is the genitive
It's my understanding that for both slender and broad 'mh' makes a more 'v' sound, right? The audio in this case seems to make it disappear altogether. Is there a rule about it not being pronounced in the middle of a word that I'm forgetting?
The pronunciation of mh can fall anywhere on the spectrum from "w" to "v", depending on the position in the word, the surrounding letters, and the dialect.
The mh in fómhar is pronounced as a "v" by some speakers, and as a "w" by other speakers.
This was strange I thought fómhar was autumn but didn't have it as an alternative in the question. When I clicked on the comments page there it was "I like the autumn!
In my area I think we usually say in the winter, in the Spring, in the Summer but during Autumn
"I like fall" - really? It's Autumn on this side of the Atlantic.
It's Autumn on Duolingo too, by default.
Odd, I got 'I like fall'...
What does it say at the top of this discussion now?
So is Irish like French? Do nouns often need the article?
