I've been trying to learn Irish for 10 months now. And im becoming a little better. There are somethings I still don't understand. The most important to me is how do I know what kind of ending to throw onto a word that makes the grammar correct

mar shampla:
as béarla - come - com"ing" - came
as gaeilge - tar - tar"?" - ?

or other endings like er, ness, less, est, ly, tion, sion, s, ish
theres just so many, and I don't know quite how to change the word to fit these things in.
Any help you guys can provide would be great, also any comments or critisisms are welcome.

go raibh míle maith agaibh

Um, how have you been learning?? After 10 months.... well, this is fairly basic stuff.

It would be best for you to invest in the right kind of learning materials, rather than waste aother 10 months going on as you are.

I don't mean to discourage you, BTW

The tenses of verbs can be found by reference to any good dictionary or verb table - tar / ag teacht / tháinig. Foclóir Gaeilge-Béarla or Briathra na Gaeilge to name but two such publications.

Le meas,

Larry.
