Ní hansa. ad·fét/in·fét = "insíonn" i nGaeilge an lae inniu.

Conas sin?

The verbal noun of "in·fét" was "indisin" or "indisiu". Bunaíodh
briathar nua ar an ainm briathartha sin sa Nua-Ghaeilge Chlasaiceach,
mar atá "innisidh", which replaced both "ad·fét" and "in·fét".

An bhfuil an ceart agam?

Dennis
