Usage notes[edit]

Questions beginning Ar mhiste... can be idiomatically translated into English with "Would it be all right...", but note that the polarity of the answer is reversed in English and Irish. The Irish equivalent of "Yes, [it would be all right]" is Ní miste, and the equivalent of "No, [it would not be all right]" is Is miste. Questions beginning An miste leat... "Do you mind..." are answered with the same polarity as in English: Ní miste "No, [I don't mind]"; Is miste "Yes, [I do mind]".
