Cé atá mé? Cén fáth a bhfuil mé ag foghlaim Gaeilge?

Is mise Stevie. Is Meiriceánach mé. Tá Béarla agam, agus tá mé i mo chonai in aice le Washington DC. Tá mé ag foghlaim Gaeilge mar go ndeachaigh go dtí an Eire sa bhlain 1995 agus gur tháinig spéis orm.

    Good use of 'Is . . . mé' for identity statement (Meiriceánach)!

     

    Cé mise? (emphatic pronoun, no copula, extra pronoun, or verb needed)

    Cé hé mé? (identity, not current state)

     

    tá mé, more common and contemporary

    táim, same thing, used more in Gaeilge na Mumhan

     

    cónaí --> i mo chónaí

    go hÉireann (vestigial dative case, without dtí or the article; the h prefix sometimes appears before words beginning in a vowel; that happens following small words that end in a vowel but don't cause either lenition nor eclipsis)

    bliain, sa bhliain
