NOUN corectly in english. Gaelic is not translated directly from
English -it is a completely different language. For instance 'woman'
is 'bean': 'amadach' means 'stupid' so when you say 'the woman is
stupid' you say in gaelic 'is amadach i an bhean'. Man = fear: big =
mor, so 'The big man = An fear mor'. Note that the noun comes before
Please get a good Grammar Book! or get a good Muinteoir Ghaeilge!!
