Not just any lemon, THE lemon. You eat THE lemon.
Exactly. The one and only lemon.
I know it's not the same meaning, but my mind went to "You eat the lemon!"
"No, you eat the lemon!"
You don't have to imperat me to eat a lemon. I will eat one voluntarily.
No! You eat the lemon!
would this sentence work in the imperative sense? or is there a different way of saying that?
The imperative is Ith an liomóid!, when addressed to just one person, or Ithigí an liomóid! when addressed to two or more people.
Hey why isnt it ate why does it have to be eat. Is there another word for ate?
"Ate" is the past tense, "eat" is the present (habitual) tense. The past tense in Irish is D'ith tú an líomóid.
Irish, like English, differentiates between the simple present itheann tú - "you eat" and the present progressive tá tú ag ithe - "you are eating".
Ah, thank you! Very interesting! :-))
