And thank you for that insight into Welsh. The Scots have altogehter too many names for sea since it was an ever present factor in the lives of most of them. I believe that m^or is roughly equivalent to muir in Gaidhlig.
sea cuan masc AFB Dwelly MD Dwelly is the name of the Dictionary used as a source,
sea fairge fem AFB Dwelly MD published in 1918.
sea loch masc AFB Dwelly MD AFB = Am Faclair Beag Faclair = Dictionary.
sea muir fem AFB Dwelly MD Accents should be over the following vowel.
sea s`al masc AFB Dwelly MD
sea s`amh masc AFB Dwelly MD
sea t`abh masc AFB Dwelly MD
Oh, and the Gaidhlig word for search in computer terms? Rannsaich from which we get the word "ransack". pronounce rannshach* - rolled r, slightly lengthened n, and a nice glottal ch sound at the end.
From McBain's dictionary : Gall
a Lowlander, stranger, Irish Gall, a stranger, Englishman, Early Irish gall, foreigner; from Gallus, a Gaul, the Gauls being the first strangers to visit or be visited by the Irish in Pre-Roman and Roman times (Zimmer). for derivation See gal, valour. Stokes takes a different view; he gives as basis for gall, stranger, *gallo-s, Welsh gal, enemy, foe: *ghaslo-? root ghas, Latin hos-tis, English guest. Hence he derives Gallus, a Gaul, so named from some Celtic dialect.
I'll swear there's a Loch Muir some where, but Muir is also a family and a clan name. John Muir was a famous late 19th Century Scottish immigrant to the US who lost the sight in one eye as a result of a workplace accident and decided there was too much to see to risk his other eye. He travelled around the country seeing its wild places and became the first really strong enviromnentalist in the US, travelling all over and advising Teddy Roosevelt on sites for Parks and the like.
Thanks so much for checking on the name for me, Dafydd.
