"What is your aim here?"

Translation:Cad é bhur n-aidhm anseo?

August 7, 2015



Any reason not to use "céard" in place of "cad"?


Dialect? If you want to speak Connacht Irish, use céard. If you want to speak anything else, use cad.


I should probably already know this ..... but it's not "cad i" because the noun has a possessive pronoun? (I thought I was being pretty swift remembering that aidhm is feminine ....)


It's not í because, while the word aidhm is feminine, the actual "aim" itself may not be. "My aim is to climb that hill", "his aim is to get on the team", etc.
