See also: deag
- Does not function as a suffix; functions as an entirely separate word. Follows the first part of the numeral as well as the noun (if any). Lenites in disjunctive numbers after dó (“two”) and in attributive numerals when the item counted is in the singular and ends in a vowel or is in the plural and ends in a slender consonant (except cinn):
- Additionally, never lenites in ordinal numbers:
- an t-aonú lá déag ― the eleventh day
- an ceathrú duine déag ― the fourteenth person
- an tseachtú mí déag ― the seventeenth month
- deich (“ten”)
|Note: Some of these forms may be hypothetical. Not every possible mutated form of every word actually occurs.|
