Ha ha. Totally!
What's the pronunciation for aige?
Most commonly "egga" but I've heard "ageh" before too.
How do you tell if Ta is he or she?
tá doesn't imply gender! tá.... AICIv would be she has, and tá..... AIGE would be he has
I'm still a bit confused about the grammar. Direct to English, is this "is rice at him"?
Technically yes, in Irish possession is shown that way, but in English possession is shown with the verb to have.
Can this be "he has the rice"?
No; that would be Tá an rís aige.
I wish it would let you find words you are trying to learn
As far as I can tell, sentence structure can either be VSO, SOV, or OVS, depending on the particular construction. Is that right, or is actually all VSO?
He's rice? Strange sentence structure
He has rice, not he is rice.
I think of it word-for-word as "Exists rice at him."
Why not He has got rice?
"Got" is optional in English in this sentence construction, although in British English "has" is often "has got".
Why is it backwards?? Should it be ta aige ris??
No, tá rís aige is correct; it literally translates as “Rice is at him”.
