Excerpt from Irish Phrase Book: Illustrating the Various Meanings and Uses of Verbs and Prepositions Combined
So in Irish the indirect or prepositional cases are often used where the English have the accusative, as, 'beir air,' catch him 3 'gab air,' beat him3 'altuigim lé Di... a,' I thank God. This indirect Object, following verbs after the manner of the English direct object, is adequately dealt with in all grammars and dictionaries except the Irish. Even the prepositional cases are fully treated, and the importance of prepositions in human speech finds due recognition from all, save perhaps our Irish grammarians, who treat these important little particles with unmerited neglect. One hundred pages of Mr. Roby's Latin Syntax, one-fourth of Dr. Abbott's Latin Prose through English Idiom, one-sixth of Dr. Joyce's Grammar, are devoted to them.
