I thought ar + an caused eclipsis of singular nouns or something? Why isn't it dtalamh here?
That get's me all the time too. You don't eclipse D and T in this case (preposition + an) except in Munster Irish.
Ar an mbord but ar an talamh
Ahh, okay. GRMA!
Why is "talamh" acceptable here, and not "talun", which is also included in the hints?
talún is the feminine genitive singular form of it, and wouldn't be used in this case. Perhaps submit the hints as being incorrect?
Thanks very much.
