Wow. This was a humdinger of an episode! (I use humdinger here for Àdhamh, who does love our Southern colloquialisms.) Too bad we have to wait SIX MONTHS to find out what happens next. We really must think of some ways to pass the time. I already have a post in the works on the aforementioned Southern colloquialisms, but I will do my best to also come up with some ways to make sure we don’t lose the Gàidhlig we have picked up over the last 8 episodes.
Speaking of picked up Gàidhlig, how many of you were able to understand most, if not all, of the Gàidhlig this week? Pat yourselves on the back!
7:25 Jamie to Hugh Munro
Madainn mhath – Good morning
Slàinte – health/cheers!
a charaid – friend
18:55 Fight with the Grants
Dougal says something at the end of the fight, but I can’t decipher it.
19:52 Jamie to Claire after the fight with the Grants
gràidh – love
23:22 Teaching Claire to fight with a knife
taing dhut – thank you
sgian-dubh – literally a dark blade
33:45 Scene with the deserters
mo graidh – my love
37:35 Jamie to Dougal when leaving for Horrocks meeting
Sèo – Here.
Well, that’s it. I hope you have enjoyed picking through the Gàidhlig with me for these last 8 weeks. I can’t wait to see what the next half season brings us in April. Stay tuned to the blog as I’m leaving for a two-week trip to Scotland on Thursday night. I plan to post from over there as time permits and I can promise lots of pictures. And, you just never know who I might run into!
