I think "as Gaeilge" is being taught in schools for 1 reason only: "as" doesn't trigger any mutation so it's simpler to beginners... But what's the point teaching something that no native speaker ever says?...


Now I see why the Caighdeán is seen as so artificial. To sound like a faceless bureaucrat is one thing, to use something that was literally made up and then adopted as the standard is...well...
