Gnìomhair Làthail – Leig

Today’s Daily Gaelic Verb is:

leig

There are a number of things I like about this complex verb.

One example of its use in Dwelly’s was this:

Na leig a dhìth a’ Ghàidhlig” “Let not the Gaelic language die”

Dwelly’s Illustrated Gaelic to English Dictionary

One of the reasons I chose this verb was because I was looking for the equivalent of the English “relinquish” in Gaelic. This example was also given:

Leig mi dhìom mo dhreuchd.” “I relinquished my office.”

Dwelly’s Illustrated Gaelic to English Dictionary

Leig is another one of those multi-faceted verbs as you can see by the length of the entry given in the link above.

This is the first of the irregular verbs I have done since restarting the Daily Gaelic verb. It is also a complex one as it can have the meaning of “give” or “take” depending on the context. It also has a number of uses idiomatically. The link to see those is included.

Gnìomhair Làthail – Feall

Today’s Daily Gaelic Verb is:

feall

This verb can be used in the sense of “to deceive” or “to betray”. So when personified as feallair it means “traitor”. Also interestingly this is the name in Gaelic for Water Hemlock. Dwelly’s has a nice illustration of the plant and supplies us with the scientific name as well, Cicuta virosa, just for added clarity. These are helpful as it is a highly poisonous plant and can be easily confused for other edible species that are found in the same family of plants such as wild carrot.
