"We walked together to the restaurant because we did not have a car."
Translation:Shiúlamar le chéile go dtí an bhialann mar ní raibh carr againn.
There wouldn't be an <n>, it'd just be bhialann. go dtí an doesn't lenite/eclipse. bialann is eclipsed because it's a feminine noun following an
It's just if you give an answer in the non synthetic form it marks it as incorrect if you do not spell restaurant as "bhnialann". i.e I gave the answer:
"Shiúil muid le chéile go dtí an bhialann mar ní raibh carr againn"
it was expecting: "Shiúil muid le chéile go dtí an bhnialann mar ní raibh carr againn"
I have reported it, but wasn't sure if this was a typo by the course creators or if there was a scenario whereby it would be spelt that way.
A feminine noun, yes. I've learned more since that post. But it's not the go dtí that causes the mutation, just the an
It's still not accepting "Shiúil muid le chéile go dtí an bhialann mar ní raibh carr againn"--it stills says it should be bhnialann and not bhialann if you use the analytical form (Shiúil muid). Reported it again.
I got this right but the word "raibh" was not a word I knew. What is that word?
It's the dependent form of bhí. That makes it the past tense equivalent of the fuil in an bhfuil? and níl.
Present tense - Tá, An bhfuil?, Níl.
Past Tense - Bhí, An raibh?, Ní raibh.
you are marking my answer wrong when you are mis spelling restaurant. you are spelling it bhinialann. Please get your act together
the standard spelling of restaurant is in correct. there is no letter N in the standard spelling
There are two "N"s in the standard spelling of bialann. The answer given above lenites bialann because feminine nouns are lenited after the singular definite article - an bhialann.
