airson s' in indirect questions

Unread postby Sealanach » Mon May 21, 2018 12:22 am

Could someone please give me some examples of "airson s'" used to replace "carson" in indirect/reported questions? I understand how the others work, e.g. "Cait' a bheil Màiri?" -> "Chan eil fhios aig a h-uile duine far am bheil Màiri."

Tha e tinn airson 's gun robh e a-muigh gun aodach

PS careful with that 's - the apostrophe is always before, never after in 's.

Tapadh leat! To replace "carson" I also found many examples in DASG whereby, if there was an antecedent, "airson" + "an/am" + verb was used.

Tha cuid do na beachdan airson an robh Mr Hamilton air a dhìteadh
