IS THERE AN IRISH INFINITIVE?



Is maith liom siubhal,
Oireann dom labhairt,
Dubhart leis teacht,
Tá ort imtheacht,
Tá orm-sa feitheamh,
"Nuair is dian ar an gcailligh é, caitheann sí rith,"



Is maith liom an bóthar do shiubhal,
Is maith liom focal do labhairt,



Tá bóthar agam le siubhal,
Tá focal agam le labhairt,
Tá bó agam le díol,
Tá uisge agam le n'ól,
Tá feóil agam le n'ithe,



Tá tigh chum comhnuighthe aige,
Tá capall chum marchuigheachta aige,
Tá slige chum siubhail aige,
