Why can't one use the verb spraoi?
The FGB only shows spraoi as being a noun.
Spraoi means fun, not play
In another sentence, "Imríonn sí leis an bhfear," why is "fear" eclipsed? I understand, from www.teanglann.ie, that "le" becomes "leis" before articles, but the wherefore of the grammatical operation on "fear" is eclipsed from me. XD
Certain prepositions cause eclipsis of the following noun, but only when the article 'an' is used. EX: Leis an bhfear/le fear, ag an gcrann/ag crann, ar an mbord/ar bord, etc.
Ah, okay, I see. Thank you very much!
