"The spider is dead."
Translation:Tá an damhán alla marbh.
Can someone explain the difference betweeen "Tá" and "is"? I don't really understand when to use which. Thank you!
If you were to use is it would be Is damhán alla marbh é which means It is a dead spider. It identifies a spider as being a dead one.
Tá an damhán alla marbh is describing the current state of the spider.
