"The gray woman."
Translation:An bhean liath.
yes right.. see that... I need to keep refreshing on the lenition rules again and again...completely forgot about that case..thanks a lot
Is there a way to make them spell it "Grey"? Reading "Gray" is making my eyes sad
XD Does this just mean that the woman is literally grey,or that she is feeling grey? I understand the sentence, I'm just quite confused about what it means. I would very much appreciate it if someone explained this to me :)
If this were an Irish-to-English exercise, the likeliest explanation would be that the woman has grey hair. Since it’s an English-to-Irish exercise, the likeliest explanation is that the woman has an ashen complexion. (The “dreary, dull” meaning of “grey” isn’t expressed by liath.)
