Use of air

Others will hopefully answer that, but just to mention, for “knowing someone” (as opposed to knowing something) I learnt: is + aithne + do + (knower) + (NOMINATIVE person known) is aithne dhomh Màiri (I know Mary) is aithne dha mise (He knows me) B’aithne dhuinn na ballaich We used to know the lads....

Experiences with An Cùrsa Inntrigidh
