Hi,
just a'wonderin' that if one has a list when ag scríobh in the possesive (not sure is correct term) does one continue to lenition all the way thru by ommiting the preposition?

i.e.

mo chos, mo charr, mo chat, mo theach, mo bhó, mo chaora...? (all lenition in place)

or can one go:

mo chos, (then) carr, cat, teach, bó, caora...?

Do you see what I mean?

I think you have to repeat the possessive every time with, its séimhiú.

"I think you have to repeat the possessive every time with, its séimhiú."

Yes I meant 'omit the séimhiú' all the way thru. Don't know where 'preposition' came out of!

So basically you're asking if it's okay to say:

mo chos, carr, cat, teach, bó, caora

in the place of:

mo chos, mo charr, mo chat, mo theach, mo bhó, mo chaora


I don't know, but if I were to leave out the "mo", I'd still stick a séimhiú on them:

mo chos, charr, chat, theach, bhó, chaora

Just seems more natural.

Yes, "mo chos, mo charr, mo chat, mo theach, mo bhó, mo chaora... (all lenition in place)." There is no other way, aside from replacing the commas with "agus": "mo chos agus mo charr agus mo theach..."

"Mo chos, carr..." would mean "My foot/leg, a car..."

I think I read somewhere that it is grammatically correct to use "agus" in that repetitive manner. The comma usage is not correct...at least, this is what I think I remember reading.
