Would someone please help me understand this? I know they wrote about eclipsis in the "tips" but is this a preposition plus a definite article? "Ag" is translated as "have", so it doesn't seem like a preposition to me.
Irish has no verb for 'have.' So, instead, whay they do is say something is 'at' somebody.
I have no idea why the tooltip for "ag" is showing up as "have". We will try to get this bug fixed.
No, it is perfectly fine it shows "tá...ag" means "have" or "has" in this case (which perhaps should be added) and underneath under the right side for "ag" the meaning "at" is given. Isn't it because the more literal meaning in Irish is "at the woman is a lemon" to mean "The woman has a lemon."?
The literal translation of Tá líomóid ag an mbean. is “Is lemon at the woman.”, but it means “The woman has a lemon.” Yes, this sentence has a preposition followed by a definite article — ag an is (typically) “at the”.
Im so done. I just put the lemon has a woman. Cause you never know with this app.
If there's an issue with the solution, report the sample. The sentence structure here is "the (object) is had by the (subject)". But that's nonsensical in English, so we write it correctly as "the (subject) has the (object)".
I put "the woman has lemon" as in the substance (uncountable in English) but it was not accepted without the article "a" (indicating a single fruit). I feel it should have been accepted. Am I missing something here?
Because then "A lemon, she has the woman." ( Literally "is the woman at she lemon" to be understood as "The woman is at she, lemon") In Irish, whatever is owned is at the owner.
