"The children eat chocolate before the dinner."
Translation:Itheann na páistí seacláid roimh an dinnéar.
So, is "dinnéar" not eclipsed because it follows "an" and that makes two n aounds in a row? Or does roimh not trigger eclipsis?
There is a rule in Irish where the letters DNTLS cannot add an Urú when they come together. For example: "An dinnéar", the N in "an" and the D in "dinnéar" come together :)
It's the combination of the 'n' from an and the 'd' from dinnéar that stop the eclipsing (though it does in Munster)
I have a question. Is this saying that they are eating it before the dinner time-wise, or are they eating the chocolate in front of the dinner?
