We already know this structure.
We can also use the other pronouns to ask about other people.
If you want to expand on your status you can use the following structure:
Tha cèile agam
I have a partner
This literally translates as “There is a partner I have”.
Chan eil cèile agam
I do not have a partner
What happens if you want to ask people what another person’s status is? Or you want to answer that question. First, we need to learn the correct prepositional pronouns.
We often use the preposition aig with a pronoun (e.g. I, you, it), to give us phrases such as “at me” or “I have”. We just need to learn these words to give us these new sentences. We already know the structure.
agam = aig + mi (have / at + me)
agaibh = aig + sibh (have / at + you)
Tha cèile agam – I have a partner
Chan eil cèile agaibh – You do not have a partner
Do you remember the other prepositional pronouns?
|aig + mi||agam||have / at me|
|aig + thu||agad||have / at you|
|aig + e||aige||have / at him / it|
|aig + i||aice||have / at her / it|
|aig + sinn||againn||have / at us|
|aig + sibh||agaibh||have / at you|
|aig + iad||aca||have / at them|
