What's paul up to now? :)
That pronunciation of "dhuine" is interesting.................
Interesting pronunciation of dhuine. I came up with choinne, which sort of made sense in context, based on experience of interminable meetings.
So isn't it necessary to use the numerals for people if you are counting people?
No, it’s not necessary. Since the largest personal number is 12, no personal number option is available for 15 people.
You can say Tá cúigear déag san oifig
Duine means "person". Then why is my answer "There are fifteen persons in the office" marked as wrong?
I was thinking the same thing
What does dhéag mean on its own? I get that here it functions like "teen" but if it was outside this context, all on its own, would it be translates the same way?
déag is to deich as "teen" is to "ten" - even to the extent that the Irish for "teenager" is déagóir.
Why is the "d" not pronounced in "dhuine"? She pronounces it as "huine"
Because it’s lenited - dhuine not duine.
