Grr. I swear she says togann se. That's what I hear anyway.

I hear tugann sé loud and clear. Tógann sounds like; tow-gann

That's what it sounds like to me. I guess I'm just not able to discern some sounds yet.

Tabhair (present tugann) according to Collins Irish Dicionary means 'give, take, bring'

How are we supposed to remember all the words like tugann, tógann, tagaim... (Sorry if I got one wrong) They are very similar. So confusing!

You’re supposed to remember them in the same way that English learners are supposed to remember similar sounding English words, e.g. “to”, “too”, and “two”.

does this come from tabhair?

I was marked wrong for translating this as 'he brings'. When I was growing up, I understood 'bring' as being equally likely as 'give' depending on the context. Anyone agree? [Edit: well, I've just seen that someone does already!]
