Bhí sé ag snámh san abhain, nó , Shnámh sé san abhain.Is one of these more or less correct? Iam trying to say, He was swimming in the river,
Bhí sé ag snámh san abhainn = He was swimming in the river.
Shnámh sé san abhainn = He swam in the river.
Agus which of these would be most correct;
Léifidh an scoláire óg a cheacht inniu. = The young scholar will read his lesson today
Beidh an scoláire óg a cheacht ag léamh inniu. > wrong because you have to put the object after the verbal noun when it’s preceded by “ag”.
Beidh an scoláire óg ag léamh a cheacht inniu. The young student will be reading his lesson today.
right except that it should be “a cheachta” (genitive after verbal noun).
