While the general meaning is the same, we do not accept answers with different word order (such as the example you listed). This is to ensure you understand what each individual word means.
How would the pronunciation of Éistim muid vs. Éistimid differ? I was sure I heard "oo" after the "m".
It can't really be "Éistim muid", because "Éistim" on its own already means "I listen", and in Irish it would not make sense to add the "muid". If you would want to use "muid", then you would need "éisteann" and that would have a clearly different pronounciation.
If the teanglann shows up as a past form, change it to present to view:
- éisteann muid
- an éisteann muid?
- ní éisteann muid
I think it's just a matter of getting used to the way things sound. It's the cost of learning in a mainly visual format when my native language has so many pronunciation differences. Thanks for the explanation!
If you want verb pairings then surely éistimid agus féachaimid and cloisimid agus feicimid?
I thought this bore an uncanny resemblance to Eisteddfod, but supposedly that came from sit and be/exist/grow.
