Note: This would mean more "he has a girlfriend" than "he has a daughter".
Huh. So if you were to say the same thing "he has a girl" but mean his daughter, is there a difference in how to say it?
You would say "he has a daughter". Tá cailín aici means that he has, in his possession, a girl. It can also mean he has a girlfriend (similar to how Tá bean aige can mean "he has a wife"). For daughter, iníon is used.
Anybody have a good way of remembering which conjugation of "have" belongs with which pronoun?
Write, not type, each form with its English equivalent multiple times. “Muscle memory” will increase your retention.
I'll try that! Thanks!
Otherwise try creating an mnemonic. Some sort of poem or rhyme that relates each conjugation to its translation. Like Never Eat Soggy Wheatbix for the directions.
