"Tóg" To take, to build?
Recently I came across the sentence "Tógann an fear an foirgneamh" Which I translated as "the man takes the building" But apparently tóg also means build? Any explanation?
It's just how it is, basically.
The etymology is that it comes from the verbal noun of the Middle Irish verb meaning
“lifts up, raises; takes, takes up; brings; takes away, lifts off, removes; raises, sets up (of stones, buildings, etc.); exalts, uplifts, elevates, extols; rears, brings up, fosters; exacts, levies, raises (a tribute or tax); awakens, rouses, excites”
