"The dog goes towards the cat."
Translation:Téann an madra chuig an gcat.
I am so glad that they have a running plus/ minus and not hearts anymore for these practice tests. I wouldn't have gotten anywhere. I am still patting myself on the back when I figure out the right word order, and this stuff is breaking my brain.
I'm going through this course again after quite a bit of time away and looking at other languages. It is most definitely a LOT easier after some of the rules have sunk in and quite a few "AHA!" moments have been had.
Am I mistaken that ____ an chait is the genitive singular? Doesn't chuig take the gentive?
an chait is the genitive, but chuig does not take the genitive, but rather eclipsis (or lenition).
Initial Mutations after chuig
- without an article: no lenition or eclipsis e.g. chuig cailín = to a girl
- with the singular-article: eclipsis (except d,t) e.g. chuig an gcailín = to the girl
- in Munster, d,t also eclipses
- in Connacht, t-prefix precedes femin. nouns with s-: chuig an tsúil
- in Ulster, always lenition e.g.: chuig an chailín
This does not belong at the beginning of part 5 of 5. None of the target vocabulary words have been taught yet. It belongs in the strengthen exercises.
