footnotes You might also hear "chuig" (hig) for 'to' or "chuig an" for 'to the'. So "chuig an linn snámha" / "go dtí an linn snámha" both mean 'to the swimming pool'.

"sa" (= in the) affects the next word and dunks a "h" after the first letter.
e.g. "bosca" (=a box) but "sa bhosca" (=in the box).

"orm" = on me
"ort" = on you (singular)
"air" = on him
"uirthi" = on her
"orainn" = on us
"oraibh" = on you (plural)
"orthu" = on them

To show that Betty is the owner of the house ("teach"), a "h" is dunked after the first letter of her name e.g. "teach Bhetty = Betty's house / "cat Bhetty" = Betty's cat.
