Why the difference of math and mhath?

This is because Gaelic nouns are divided into feminine and masculine nouns. It’s important to distinguish these from female and male nouns. It does not refer to the gender of an animal or a person.

The adjective math, meaning ‘good’, lenites with feminine nouns to create mhath. Lenition means the softening of a consonant sound, usually shown in spelling by an h after the consonant.
