so what exactly would the difference between "you drink coffee" and "drink your coffee"?
- “You drink coffee” uses an indicative mood verb — Ólann tú caife (or Ólann sibh caife ).
- “Drink your coffee” uses an imperative mood verb — Ól do chuid caife (or Ólaigí bhur gcuid caife ).
Deoch is the noun “drink” (or the verb “immerse”), not the verb “drink”.
Yes; like English, Irish expresses the present progressive and the simple present differently.
