Seo rudan ìnntinneach ris an tachair mi ann an Dwelly air loidhne:

cogais
-cork of a bottle

meacan -individual
Is buan meacan na falachd -Long lasts the rod whose root sprang from blood
Cha robh meacan ann -There was nobody there

a' mearachadh -perishing from exposure
Chaidh a mhearachadh air a' mhonaidh -He perished on the hillside

neul -used in the sense of 'dizzy/giddy'
Thàinig neul nam cheann -I grew giddy

plòiseach -portion of anything
plòiseach clò -a piece of cloth

rùdail -rumbling noise in the bowels!

sgealp -sharp report, as of a pistol

sìthichte -pleased

a' sluinnse -lashing/thrashing

smiorcadh -sense
Chan eil smiorcadh aige -He has no sense

spat-uisge -a heavy fall of rain

spice -pinnacle/conicle peak/anything pointed

srannach -speaking through the nose

steapag-fhraoich -single stock of heather with the root attached

suaint -a high degree of excellence
Tha e suaint math -It is exceedingly good

sùstan(a) -thousand(s)

sùthar -civil/affable/polite/gentle

a' tìoradh -drying, originally from the drying of straw on a kiln

tuartan -head-cold

upaig -old and useless person
Tha e na upaig anns an rathad -He is a 'lumber' in the way


Dè ur beachd? Tha mise a' smaointeachadh gu bheil an leasachadh seo gu math cudromach airson duine sam bith às sgire sam bith, o chionn 's gu bheil e comasach a-nis fiosrachadh fhaotainn mu na dualchainntean agaibh fhèin.

Uisdean -'s urrainn dhuit a-nis Gearrloch
(Gairloch) a chur a-staigh agus faclan sònraichte fhaotainn a-mach airson sgire do sheanair!

Gabh spors!


Feuch (W. of Ross or West of Ross) cuideachd!

i wonder... if this could be the root of "skelp"
it's a word i remember from my youth in Ayrshire
a skelp across the jaw = a crack across the jaw .. basically hit someone.
i think it would make sense as the root for skelp
