Why is it bhean and not bean? I thought bean was the nominative form of this word.

You are correct - it is the nominative form. However, after the definite article an, feminine nouns lenite. So you would have bean ((a) woman) but an bhean (the woman)

Apologies - this sentence should not be appearing until after the Lenition skill.
