"Sandwiches are on the menu!"
Translation:Tá ceapairí ar an mbiachlár!
oh, i see my problem now - i put "na ceapairí" which would be "the sandwiches" not just sandwiches. "tá ceapairí ar an mbiachlár" is indeed correct. mystery solved!
Apparently, both bhiachláir (with an 'i') and mbiachlár are acceptable. Is this a dialect thing? I said "bhiachlár", and that was marked wrong. Thinking about it, bhiachláir sounds like a plural. Is it? Bit confused....
i wrote "ná ceapairí" and it said i was wrong but i can't remember quite why. can someone explain?
There should be no fada síneadh on na. Na = the (plural) Ná = than, nor, but, don't etc
oh i might've written it without the fada then, because i know duolingo just tells me i've made a typo if i screw up fadas. either way, can you explain why it is tá and not na? that's really what's most confusing me about this.
According to your post you wrote "Ná" and not the correct word "Na". Tá has nothing to do with this. I don't know where that came from.
- Na (with no fada over the letter a) ceapairí is correct. and
- Ná ( with a fada over the letter a) ceapairí is incorrect.
Your answer was wrong because it was number 2 and not number 1. Simples!
oh okay! problem solved then - it's duolingo's problem, since the translation they give is "tá ceapairí ar an mbiachlár". i'll report it, i just assumed it was my error because no one else had commented here with the same issue. thank you!!
You put Na with a fada over the a in Na as your answer. Na ceapairí = the sandwiches. Correct Irish but the wrong answer. Ceapairí = sandwiches. Ná = than, nor, but, don't
I believe that "Tá ceapairí ar an biachlár" is correct.
Na ceapairaí means the sandwiches so what you said was the sandwiches on the menu. Tá na ceapairí ar an means the sandwiches are on. Tá means someting is/are. Mar shampla(for example) tá mé ar an mbord = i am on the table
The way I understand it, that's eclipses. It's what you have to do to a word that comes after certain thing, such as "ar an".
One year later and it is still saying your/my solution is incorrect in regard to "bhiachlár". Not sure how to report this?
What's the difference between "Tá ceapairí ar an bhiachlár" and "Tá ceapairí ar an mbiachlár"? Duo said both were acceptable.
