"He calls the dog."
Translation:Glaonn sé ar an madra.
In Irish you put a call or query on something.
- Glaonn sí ar na Gardaí = She calls on the Gardaí (She calls the police)
- Glaofaidh mé ar mo chara = I'll call on my friend (I'll call my friend)
- Cuirim ceist ar mo chara = I put question on my friend (I ask my friend a question)
For the same reason as glaonn. In Irish, you use the phrasal verb glaoigh ar when calling someone/something.
Can someone answer my question thanks oh the question is why would he need to call the dog?
Because he has a problem that only the dog can solve. Níos fearr an madra glaoch.
When ar comes before the verb, it's a past tense interrogative particle.
The ar in this exercise isn't an interrogative particle. It's a preposition that comes after the verb, and is used with glaoigh to specify who is being called, including your mother or your father. You need to ar.
