That's lovely! Agus, bog an cat an turtar? Does that work? (The cat kisses the turle.) Or would thug an bog an cat ar an turtar? also work? The cat gives the turtle a kiss.)
I am sure both those sentences are incorrect, and I'm only spelling 'kiss' from memory. Probably the second sentence is the worst. But if anyone can guide me on this I'd be glad.
There is an exception to the eclipsing rule here: you don't eclipse a d or t after a word that ends with n. It probably has something to do with how similarly these sounds are made with your mouth, so it's easier to say without eclipsing. I haven't been able to view any tips or explanations in the mobile app, but I hope they plan on adding them. Otherwise, this system will be as bad as Rosetta Stone. At least this is free, though! But remember, flash card type stuff is to reinforce things you've already learned elsewhere, so be mindful as you use this system.
Russian does the same thing for the concept of "having" and with the same preposition "at" if I remember correctly.
But to stay in English, think of a somewhat similar example since possession is a type of "having" :
The shoes of John
While the first one isn't very grammatical, it is understandable ... and the nouns are in the opposite order.
The shoes are at John
John has the shoes.
I imagine that Irish, like Scots Gaelic, uses "le" (with) with another meaning of having or owning as well.
