As we know, compound prepositions can combine with the possessive adjectives mo, do, a, a(–h–), ar, ur an/am. The compound preposition (ann) an aghaidh uses the preposition ann an, therefore to say ‘against me’ (literally ‘in my face’) we combine the simple preposition ann an with the possessive adjectives.
|an aghaidh + mo||nam aghaidh|
|an aghaidh + do||nad aghaidh|
|an aghaidh + a||na aghaidh|
|an aghaidh + a||na h–aghaidh|
|an aghaidh + ar||nar n–aghaidh|
|an aghaidh + ur||nur n–aghaidh|
|an aghaidh + an||nan aghaidh|
