I haven’t yet seen the piece by Des Bishop on counting – might give it a look. I written this thread in English, in case some learner’s who are still more confident in English know of things they have been taught by other teachers.
The idea about no verb for ‘to have’ is also a good point.
@Hugo: Fair point, but it’s still one that I find interesting.
Things like – an chloch is mó ar do phaidrín – where the piety of Ireland comes shining through!
I don’t know how to really describe it and so it’s hard to research/make a collection! I don’t think even Google could organise my thoughts and keywords into one (or even two) decent searches!
