The banana vs a banana?
a banana = banana
the banana = an banana
So itheann se would be he eats a banana, right?
"Itheann sé" yes
She eats banana VS she eats A banana...
it's the same in Irish
Can anyone offer a phonetic pronunciation for Itheann? I positively can not get my mouth/voice to do the first consonants like the recording
Roughly it's the "i" from "in" followed by "hin". In Connemara Irish, however, it's the "ch" sound instead of an "h".
Hmm ... I put itheann se banana; without the síneadh fada on the se. And I got it right. Even "Good!" No, "Pay attention to accents". No "You had a typo". Just "Good!" Hmm. I reported it. Said "My answer should not be accepted."
