Why does this not need a "de" in front of it?
It's already there. The Dé at the beginning of it is where it was separate in the past.
Here's the etymology:
> From dé (“day”) + idir (“between”) + dhá (“two”) + aoine (“fast”) (literally, "day between two fastings").
Thanks, that was an awesome explanation.
So why “Déardaoin” isn't spelled “dé Ardaoin” instead? Irish is so complicated and more detailed explanation is needed in the tips and notes.
That totally rocked my galaxy!
Why is this not ' ar déardaoine '?
