Perhaps Bord Bia secretly funds Duolingo, so that itheann and ólann are the only verbs available.
I wish we could move on to another verb besides ith. I feel like we're relying on being able to conjugate this one verb to construct new sentences, but it would be nice to move onto another so I would know it as well as I do "eat". :)
I have noticed that they do not make full use of the words they are teaching us. If they did it would be SO much better.
Ach means but. Mar means because
it was in another question:
ithim nuair "a" rithim,
why is the "a" not required here?
mar doesn't require a relative clause when it means "because"
Wait I thought it was ithe . Is it ith or ithe?
Should accept: Itheann tú mar a ithimid
No it should not. Itheann tú mar a ithimid doesn't mean "You eat because we eat", it means "You eat the way we eat" ("you eat as we eat").
English is complicated - "as" doesn't always mean "because".
Is itheann sibh mar ithimid muid wrong? I felt I wanted to emphasise the 'we'
ithimid muid means "we eat us", it does not emphasise the "we".
