I said "An Domhnach" instead of "Dé Domhnaigh" and it was marked as wrong. I thought 'An' was used to refer to the day in a general sense and 'Dé' to mean a specific Sunday - am I mistaken here? Any help greatly appreciated!
The use of Sunday in this sentence is adverbial, so an adverbial form of Domhnach is needed; one could use either ar an Domhnach or Dé Domhnaigh.
Ok, thanks for that. I may have forgotten the word "ar", which is probably why it was marked wrong. Cheers!
I wrote "ar an Domhnach", but it was not accepted. Should it have been? (My reasoning was that Sundays in general was meant - not just a particular Sunday).
Is the “amháin” necessary? The New English-Irish Dictionary gives the example “ar oscailt gach lá ach an Domhnach”.
When “except” is a preposition (such as in this exercise), the amháin should be optional after ach.
