Can anyone explain the "go" in this sentence? Not sure why it is necessary.
There's a few adjectives (six big ones) that require go when use as a predicate: deas, maith, olc, iontach, álainn, dona. Mostly subjective things.
I came here to ask that exact question. Thank you, Galaxyrocker, for answering it.
Why not 'is deas sin'? Like 'is maith sin' but nice instead of good.
not ''Tá sin go deas''?
I'm not sure if this is grammatically correct but I certainly hear it
Why can't I say Is deas é sin?
I'm still not quite getting Ta/Is... the last sentance i had was "Is fior é sin" -- "That is true". So for this one, I put "Is deas é sin". Why is one constructed with Tá and the other with Is?
Is deas é sin isn't really wrong, but it is generally more emphatic than tá sé sin go deas. It should probably have been accepted as an answer for this exercise.
