Why is the "is" in this sentence? thanks
It's an abbreviated form of agus. Literally, "There are eight carrots and thirty in that bag"
Oh, that makes sense. Thanks.
Then why can't it also be "agus"?
If it doesn’t also accept agus, use the Report a Problem button to bring it to the course creators’ attention.
focloir.ie translates thirty eight as "tríocha a hocht". Is that usage not applicable to thirty-eight in this context?
