Exercise 54

Exercise 55

 

Do you have a car? I don’t have a car. I have wine and bread in my bag. Do we have bread? We have bread in the house. Do you (pl) have a blue pen? We don’t have a blue pen, but we have a yellow pen. The minister has a red car. This doctor has green grass in his garden. The student doesn’t have a book at all. Wicked Angus has the wine and you have water a-plenty. Does your brother have a good house? He doesn’t have a house at all.

 

Note:

We have already met agam, agad, etc.. as meaning ‘my, your’. These forms are prepositional pronouns that combine aig + personal pronouns. To express possession in Gaelic is a simple matter of expressing that something is ‘at’ someone. So we either use aig + name, or one of the prepositional pronouns that combines aig with mi, thu, etc..
