  5. "Both carrots and potatoes ar…

"Both carrots and potatoes are in the soup."

Translation:Tá idir chairéid agus phrátaí san anraith.

August 4, 2015



In my limited experience I haven't come across "idir" being used for "both". I used "araon" but was marked incorrect.


Judging by example usages on Potafocal, Tá cairéid agus fataí araon san anraith should be accepted.


Idir … agus seems to be used only for grouping disparate nouns, e.g. Tá idir fhear agus bhean anseo, while araon seems to be of more general use, e.g. Tá siad araon anseo.
