  Irish verbs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Irish verb forms are constructed either synthetically or analytically.
Some verbs have different independent and dependent forms in certain tenses; the independent forms are used when no particle precedes the verb, and also after má 'if' (open conditional) and the direct relative particle a, while the dependent forms are used after all other particles.
Irish uses a number of preverbal particles to modify the meaning of a sentence.

 Irish morphology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nouns are declined for gender, number, and case, and verbs for person and number.
Other aspects of Irish morphology, while typical for a Celtic language, are not typical for Indo-European, such as the presence of inflected prepositions and the initial consonant mutations.
Irish nouns, adjectives, and the definite article are discussed on the page on Irish nominals.

 Explanation of Conjugation
The irregular verbs feic, faigh, téigh, tar, clois, bí have preterite forms ending in -thas (chonacthas/facthas = one saw, fuarthas = one received, chuathas/deachthas = one went, thángthas = one came, chualathas = one heard, bhíothas/rabhthas = one was).
verbs ending in -il, -in, -ir, -is used to not form the future tense with -óch- (because no -igh was present) but by lengthening the vowel of the last syllable to -ó- or.
verbs of the 1st conjugation can not form the future tense not by lengthening the vowel of the last syllable (because they are mostly monosyllabic or the 2nd syllable is already long).

 Gaelic by a Beginner
Most verbs in Irish are regular, and follow a very predictable form of conjugation.
Verbs are usually referred to by their imperative forms (the command form -- such as sit).
Since the rules in Irish are actually more predictable than in English, it is relatively simple to determine the other forms of the verbs based on their present tense.

Irish first began to appear in writing in the form of Ogham inscriptions starting in approximately the 3rd century A.D. No similar script is found anywhere in Europe, and the very name for it, Old Irish ogham, a non-Celtic word, shows that it was probably inherited from the early inhabitants of the British Isles.

 A Separate Standard for Ulster Irish?
The verb is then assimilated to the entire paradigm of this kind of verbs, producing forms such as the present sábhlaíonn instead of the prescribed sábhálann, as well as the non-intrusive, syncopated future and conditional forms sábhlóchaidh and shábhlóchadh.
Irish is quite happy to add several strong plural suffixes one after another, and it is neither odd nor uncommon to hear colloquial triple plurals such as paróistíochaí ”parishes” (paróiste ”parish” followed by plural —í, another plural —acha, becoming, according to contemporary orthography, -ocha after a long /í/, and, finally, another —í).
A syntactic trait especially typical of non-native Irish is the usage of ag to signify the agent of an autonomous verb, arising from the tendency of non-native learners to equate Irish autonomous verbs with English passives.

 What do I need to learn Old Irish?
I assume that you are primarily interested in learning Old Irish in order to read the medieval texts, and that you already have an understanding of English grammar, including conjugations, declensions, subjects, objects, and indirect objects.
The translation exercises are derived from medieval Irish glosses to texts from the Latin Bible.

 Cathal Doherty
Early Irish verbal morphology is notoriously complex in that verbs distinguish two sets of endings for most tenses and moods, the use of which varies with syntactic context: i.e.
These facts indicate that compound verbs necessarily involve the projection of CP: in particular, that the preverbs are associated with the CP projection.
In sum, the proposal that the conjunct paradigm of Old Irish verbs indicates the projection of CP has considerable evidence in its favor and provides the basis for an explanation of a broad range of seemingly unrelated facts.

Irish nouns can be either masculine or feminine, and "an" before a feminine noun aspirates most of the initial consonants that can be aspirated.
Irish consonants have two sounds, depending on whether the nearest vowel in the word is in the group of "a", "o", "u" or in the group of "e", "i".
In Irish, each of these two letters has a broad sound when the nearest vowel in the word is "a, o, u", and a slender sound when the nearest vowel is "e, i".

(2.) The genitive case in both Irish and Finnish-Estonian is accompanied by the use of the letter -N-, as the article AN and NA (gsf.) in Irish and as the suffix -N- in Finnish.
It may also be noted that the Old Irish MA 'if' was added to some interrogatives in Old Irish, and could be seen as giving the word it was attached to a conditional aspect, that is, indicating an action in process, but not completed.
Yet the equivalent of the Irish definite article AN and NA may be seen in the use of the suffixes -N, -ON, -EEN, -IN in various cases.

I know Irish verbs technically don't have an infinitive form, but I know there's a way to say "to _____" as in "I like to cook" or "He likes to eat chocolate chip cookies for breakfast." I've even used it!
In Irish, I believe, you simply use the verbal noun.
As in Latin as, certain verbs "take" the English infinitive but the infinitive becomes a noun form of the verb in the process.
