The pronunciation of 'léinte' is incorrect. It should have a narrow 't'. Instead it is pronounced so that it sounds almost like léannta... Which does not make sense.
Can someone point me to a discussion for how to form plurals of words? So far, I'm pretty much just been memorizing (or, well, writing down in my notebook) the plurals of words when they show up in questions, but I'm not seeing a consistent set of rules for how to make a word plural, so it's all just guesswork.
We wear shirts. Why would it be we wear the shirts. Both should be correct.
"The" must be included in the best translation because the plural definite article "na" is present in the Irish sentence. (We wear shirts would be "caithimid léinte")
I wonder if léine is somehow related to English "linen" and French "lin" and comes from PIE *līno- "flax"...
Are shirts always plural? Are pants always plural? Would I always put na in front of those words for the shirts and the pants?
"The shirt" - An léine
"The shirts" - Na léinte
"The (pair of) trousers" - An bríste
"The (pairs of) trousers" - Na brístí
