How are you supposed to know if "feicfimid" or "feicimid" is being said based on hearing (or do you pick it up in context?)
The is devoiced in the future. Or you just use analytic forms. Otherwise, context.
Which sound is devoiced in the future? The only voiced consonant here is the slender [d] and it's still voiced in feicfimid (at least that's what I hear)
This one is context. Generally, it's the consonant preceeding the 'f'.
Also, I hate Duolingo's markup, deleteing my brackets!
This is getting very confusing, in my local dialect we would say at the cinema or at the shop, rather than in the cinema
Agree. "At" is usual in my area too (southern UK)
But sa/san translates to "in the". So even though you would say "at the" in your particular style of English, sa is Irish and it doesn't translate that way.
we'll see the flic at the flics
'We will watch the film at the cinema' not accepted. Appreciate an explanation...
feic is not the Irish for "watch".
