Not sure how to spell it but is seafóideach silly as well?
Yes. (You’d spelled it correctly.)
Nope, still don't know Is from Ta.
It's basically on what you're linking together. If it's two nouns, you use is. If it's a noun any anything else, you'd use tá
Oh ok, I will try to remember that.
Wait so what in this sentence are we linking together?
'He' and 'silly boy'
Right, thank you. I actually have seen several others now that you have explained this to me and I understand it now.
If you’ve ever studied Spanish (or Portuguese), the difference between ser and estar is akin to the difference between Irish is and bí. (Tá is a conjugation of bí.)
No Spanish yet. Just French and then I wasn't taught French very well.
Galaxyrocker says "two nouns linked, use 'is', noun & any anything else, use 'tá' ". But in this question we have a noun and a pronoun, so why does the Duolingo answer use "is"?
I typed "Is buachaill amaideach é" and it said that i was wrong and the answer was "Is gasúr amaideach é" doesnt that mean "it's a silly boy"? (Another irish speaker said that gasúr was hammer?)
