we all have that one person...
I don't seem to fully understand how "a" works. Is it connected to "nuair"? If so, is there an occasion in which I get to use only "nuair", and what's the difference from "nuair a"?
Yes, as far as I know you always say "nuair a" can't think of a situation where its just nuair
You're right, nuair is almost always followed by a, but it can also be followed by the copula - nuair is féidir - "when possible", nuair is gá - "when necessary", faigh madra nuair is coileán é - "get a dog when it's a puppy"
I so appreciate your insights into the Irish language!
Nuair is historically "an uair" and introduces a relative clause, so it needs a relative particle, a or is or nach. "Nuair nach bhfuil faic eile le rá aige.."
LOL. That guy. The drunk that cant zip it. Hahahaha
I would use the term seachas instead of ach amháin
When do you use é and when do you use sé?
This blog explains it quite well
Is deas an ciúta é sin!
