"A man wants food."
Translation:Teastaíonn bia ó fhear.
If the following noun is without an article, then these prepositions will lenite the noun: a, de, do, faoi, mar, ó, roimh, trí, and um. There are particular rules for the prepositions ar, gan, idir, and thar; sometimes they’ll lenite the following noun, and sometimes they won’t.
OK. I will cross that bridge when I come to it. Right now, genitive is looming.
Jesus i am fluent in irish and im fairly sure its tà an fear ag iarradh bia. Teastaìonn bia ò fear means food is needed off a man
