Ach nan cuirte às dha, ciamar a bhiodh an luchd Gàidhlig ag ionnsachadh na Beurla? Oir 's ann a tha tuiseal ginideach sa Bheurla. Seo eisimpleir:-
T.G. sa Bheurla wrote:The Member of Parliament's Committees

The problem is that the classical genitive has two equivalents in English -- the possessive and the so-called "classifier noun". Calling either of them "the genitive" would confuse people.

I'm adding this discussion of genitive with 'clusters', place names etc to the Grammar section, so those interested can find it and continue their fun! :spors:
