Gaelic has no verb 'have' . Instead sentential possession is indicated by using the verb Bi (Tha, Bha, Beidh etc) followed by the possessed element followed by the preposition aig and then the possessor:
|Calum has a book|
When the possessor is pronominal one of the inflected forms of aig (e.g. agam, agad, aige, etc.) is used:
|He has a book|
