When is past tense "an" rather than "ar"?
For abair, déan, téigh, faigh, feic, bí Every other verb uses ar
I'm going to try conjugating all these in the second person in alphabetical order:
An nduirt tu? (Abair)
An raibh tu? (Bi)
An ndearna tu? (Dean)
An bhfuair tu? (Faigh)
An bhfaca tu? (Feic)
An dteigh tu? (Teigh)
How was that?
You messed up on the last obe. an ndeachaigh tú
Thanks much! I really appreciate it. And now I seem to recall seeing this in the help, but it's already been a while.
I'm trying to remember why this broad dh is apparently pronounced slenderly by everyone on Forvo and Teanglann.
The teanglann.ie pronounciations of radharc are following the usual practice of a stressed vowel followed by -dh being pronounced as a diphthong. (The same also applies to a stressed vowel followed by -gh, -bh, or -mh.)
Remember how an praghas (the price) was pronounced the same way?
I have been seeing "chonaic" translated as "saw". Which form comes from feiceann, and if "chonaic" comes from another verb, what is that verb in the present tense?
Feiceann, chonaic, and bhfaca are all forms of the same verb!! The present tense is feiceann. The past tense forms are chonaic, an bhfaca, and ní fhaca.
Go raibh maith agat!
WHERE is that accent from....? :
I think that the current consensus here is north Connacht.
