Why doesn't dental dots apply here? I'd expect "bia don dinnéar".
Tá an ceart agat.
bhí iasc úr againn don dinnéar
bhí iasc aici don dinnéar
rug sé ar choinín don dinnéar
What do you mean by dental dots?
I put "He buys food for dinner", without the the. Why is that correct?
They seem to be accepting that now, but I think the reason they didn't is that the word 'don' means 'for THE'.
Never mind. I think I understand now what you're saying. Good question.
I put down "He buys food for dinner" and that was wrong with the correct answer being "He buys food for the dinner" but there isn't any "an" in the irish translation
do + an -> don
he definitely needs a flamethrower instead.
Am i missing a section where DUO explains the Irish grammar? In the Spanish lessons you can click in to "tips" which actuakly teaches you. Im flying through the irish but guessing, wouldn't be able to write the sentences properly.
There are, but if you're using mobile Duolingo you can't see them. It's a weird (and bad) disparity between using Duolingo on browser versus on a phone.
