How is this any different than "is féidir leo an ghealach"?

That translates to “They can the moon” (i.e. “can” the modal, not “can” as in “put into a can”).

I think /aroacegirls issue is related to the dictionary prompt where 'Is féidir leo' prompts 'They can see'; this should be 'they can'. /aroacegirls's query is correct given the incorrect dictionary prompt.

That makes sense. Sometimes it helps for the context behind a question to be made explicit when raising the question, since I hadn’t hovered over those words to read their dictionary hint, and thus didn’t take their incorrect content into account when replying.

How could I make a question out of this (or of any statement with is-copula, for that matter)?
