A bheil fios agad?

Do you know?

John, Anne and Finlay used another new structure: fios + aig + air

Fios means information or knowledge and we use it with the prepositions aig and air to ask if someone has knowledge of something.

In this structure, both prepositions aig (at) and air (on) change when used in conjunction with pronouns. They can both be used alone with nouns or people’s names.

Questions and answers for fios + aig + air

Notice how the subject and object in English (X (subject) knows Y (object) are placed very differently in the Gaelic sentence, because we’re saying ‘There’s knowledge at X on Y’ (meaning ‘X has knowledge of Y’).

We can use the prepositional pronouns for new sentences.
