Thanks to you both. Does 'ni mor liom', or 'I have to', basically mean 'it is not too much for me to', then? Or something like that?
How come there is Ní? How can we know it does not mean "we DON'T have to play? Is there an ecplanation somewhere?
It's ní because ní mór de is one of half a dozen ways to say "must" or "have to" in Irish. Some of them use tá, some of them use níl, some of them use the copula, some of them use another verb.
caithfimid imirt i ngrúpa
ní mór dúinn imirt i ngrúpa
is gá dúinn imirt i ngrúpa
tá orainn imirt i ngrúpa
ní foláir dúinn imirt i ngrúpa
tá againn le himirt i ngrúpa
is éigean dúinn imirt i ngrúpa
Thank you! You are always very helpful. The construction was not easy to understand as it popped up out of the blue.
This time I wrote "we must play" and it was rejected. I see that some have reported it three years ago but it has not changed.
Is it really necessary to use "a" here? I'm asking more for English than Irish, in this case. -_-
