Hello!

There is a book called ''Democracy: The God That Failed'' that I was wondering what a translation of it would be in Irish. I dont know what the best way to translate it would be as to me it doesnt have a ''object'' as in how Irish is VSO word order
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verb%E2%8 ... 0%93object. Sorry if this is dumb/not allowed.

Thanks so much!

An Daonlathas: An Dia ar Theip Air.

("teip ar" is a somewhat strange verb, in what you fail is rather its subject: Teipeann an rud ar Dhia = God fails in something. Teipeann ar Dhia é a dhéanamh. = God fails to do it.
Without mentioning it, a subject is totally absent: Teipeann ar Dhia = God fails.)

:good:

Also, I wonder if ". . . An Dia ar Lig Síos Sinn" would be possible? ". . . The God that Let Us Down"

Only if you change 'ar' to 'a' (it's a direct relative). :)
