"I am six feet tall."

Translation:Táim sé troithe ar airde.

January 4, 2015



Why dha throigh, but se troithe? I feel like I should know, but I don't.


troigh is one that has an irregular counting form, like bliain, uair and sechtain.


We haven't explained this fully in the notes. Nine nouns use a special plural form when counting with bunuimhreacha, and tróigh is one of them - but the special plural is not used for one or two.


A summary of the special rules for troigh and friends can be found in the discussion here.
