A’ RANNSACHADH -Searching Gàidhlig Bhàideanach

by noreply@blogger.com (Críostóir Piondargás) @ DROITSEACH

A’ RANNSACHADH -Searching Gàidhlig Bhàideanach

Slight technical hitch...my earlier post of this seems to have been lost! So here we go again....this piece was to accompany the pictures I posted previously.


I started learning Gaelic at primary school. For me it was a natural progression as I’d already learned a lot about the musicality of the language from those thin-walled, ‘Calum’s Ceilidh’ by proxy sessions. Music and Gaelic seem intertwined. With a few breaks along the way, my Gaelic studies have continued into adult life, and I juggle Gramar na Gàidhlig with the demands of raising a family.
I have a kind of Gaelic synaesthesia. When someone speaks it I ‘hear’ the landscape of their origin in their accent. Pictures flash of moors and the backlit space between the crofts in the Lewis Gaelic, of the burn rushing by the leaning alder and soft lichen-covered birch in Skye Gaelic. I became curious about the Gaelic of my own land, the pictures it would evoke. As I heard my own faltering learner’s Gaelic it had too many landscapes in it, like a tourist handbook of the Gàidhealtachd, and in that it had no roots of its own to speak of. It needed to come home. There was no getting around it. Although all but extinct, I had to learn the Badenoch dialect.
I decide to start my search for Badenoch dialect at home in Kingussie and visit my mother, in the hope that there may be something in writing in the chest of family hoardings. Although at times verging on an affliction, I am now at peace with the fact I come from a family of hoarders and have finally come to a place of gratitude to them. My great-aunt was a lady of taste and only hoarded quality, most of it still pristine. A chest of her yellowing papers and sepia photographs sits in my mother’s house (Ceann a Ghiubhsaich) amongst piles of her rare volumes, half-knitted aran jumpers ‘for the bairns’, dusty ornaments and Daniel O’ Donnell calendars. I am struck by the beauty of the chest’s contents, the quality of the paper, the miniscule detail of the stamps, the flowing watermarks. Letters preserved in their original envelopes in crisp, meticulous copperplate. My mother reads aloud the letters to me (at 43....I’m not allowed to touch). Desolate letters to ‘Parsley’ about the passing of ‘Aged’ (my great-grandfather), the early death of Bella-Ann who succumbed to ’flu in a strange bed away from home at the age of 20. Receipts for gravestones and the cleaning of musquash fur coats. All of them in a beautiful restrained script, neatly folded, the paper softened with age and the fingers of hands long passed. As hoped, as my mother pulls out some Gaelic papers. I am finally allowed the privilege of handling these on account of having passed her strict criteria in my dedication to learning Gaelic - and of having washed my hands. Hand-written by my great-great-grandfather, is a list of Gaelic words he drafted in a letter to the Editor of the Highland News , saying “ Perhaps the following will be interesting to ‘Lamh-Dhearg’ in answer to some of his queries.” We think the letter is from c. 1900.
I have tried to decipher the writing and drawn up a list here of the words he has written. I have referred to Dwelly and some of the words are listed as Badenoch Gaelic in his dictionary. Some words I could not find at all in Dwelly but that could be down to my interpretation of the written script.

Achanaich – prayer, petition [athchuinge in Standard Gaelic]
Socag - small clod of earth
Fhunntaininaich – damp cold weather
Corcaigean – bannocks or oatcakes
Lairganaich – waiting, expecting
Raoieil – roaring
Bhiuthanas – famous character [biuthas in Standard Gaelic]
Lorghanach – noisy
Uaigealta – solitary [uaigealtas in SG]
Graidealan – stick used for making porridge
Measrach – thinking, judging
Blathach – buttermilk
Slamhach, Slaman, na Slamanach – curdled milk
Muileann-leth-coise (?) – Probable this word should be Muileann-Laimh-Bradh – Quern
Poit-uirearaidh – pot for drying grain on the fire before it is made into meal by the quern. The meal made in this manner is Mui-uirearaidh (?). The bread – aran uirearaidh. This mode of making meal was quite common in some parts of the Highlands especially Skye some thirty or forty years ago, and may be yet”.

GÀIDHLIG BÀIDEANACH Badenoch Gaelic

by noreply@blogger.com (Críostóir Piondargás) @ DROITSEACH

GÀIDHLIG BÀIDEANACH Badenoch Gaelic

#gaidhligbaideanach

Seo Màirin mhór Uilleim a’ rithistich.

Amongst the Badenoch papers in the family chest was this story. (There’s a photograph of it in the accompanying photographs). Our family do not know who Ian Dubh was but the story was obviously of some significance to have been preserved. We already know that two Leslie ancestors aided Cluny Macpherson, a staunch supporter of the Jacobite cause, and were amongst a handful who knew of his hiding place, apparently building his shelter and bringing him supplies in secret after the ’45 uprising. Perhaps this is another of the few on the Macpherson side.

“ Ian Dubh had the honour in all probability of saving the Chief’s life on another occasion also. One day in the same year 1746 he saw a band of soldiers approaching from the North. It instantly rushed into his mind that this ought to be known at Cluny Castle [seat of Cluny MacPherson, a Jacobite sympathiser, near Laggan in Badenoch].

He put off his rough home-made brogues to facilitate his progress and started off to run to the castle taking the way by which his movements were least open to observation. He reached the castle in safety and warned the chief and his family of the coming of the soldiers. Cluny’s wife took refuge in a lime-kiln which was near the castle and Cluny himself betook himself to his cave in Craig Dhu [near Newtonmore, Badenoch]. One hour after Ian Dhu had given warning the soldiers came and set fire to the castle. Ian is said to have hurt his foot in his race for life. Ian knew of the chief’s hiding place but nothing would tempt him to reveal it.

He is also said as the Gaelic has it to have ‘nourished’ his chief. He probably supplied him with food. Such is one of the many acts of fidelity performed by the poor mountaineers of Scotland at that period. One thousand pounds was offered for Cluny’s capture, dead or alive.

Ian Dubh’s conduct must be remembered with more admiration when we reflect what such a sum would represent to him. He could have bought the whole of Badenoch. “You are a foolish man Ian” people are said to have said to him, knowing that he could have given up the chief had he pleased. But Ian had a “Highland heart as true as steel” and did not betray his chief.

He was hale and hearty when nearly eighty years of age and those who knew him said that he looked a fine figure in his Macpherson tartan kilt and plaid. He was an elder of St. Columba’s Church Kingussie and although he could not read he is said to have had a capital memory. When he heard others reading what the minister had read in church he knew when they made a mistake and said “That is not what the minister said”. He is buried with many more of his ancestors, relations and descendents in the old burying ground of Biallid [churchyard beneath Creag Dhubh, Newtonmore].”

A BADENOCH POEM From Thomas Sinton’s ‘The Poetry of Badenoch’

De ni mi gun léine ghlain,
Gun léine ghlain, gun léine ghlain ;
De ni mi gun léine ghlain,
'S mi dol as a' bhaile màireach.

Tha tigh agam, tha bean agam,
'S an bùrn aig ceann an tigh agam,
Tha punnd do shiabunn geal agam,
Is léine shalach ghnàd' orm.

'Nuair thug mi dhi gu nigheadh i,
'S ann thòisich i ri bruidhinn rium ;
'S an uair a fhuair mi rithist i,
Bu mhios' i na mar bha i.

Bidh 'h-uile fear a' farraid rium,
'Farraid am beil bean agam,
'Farraid am beil bean agam,
Is leine shalach ghnàd' orm.

What shall I do without a clean shirt.
Without a clean shirt, without a clean shirt
What shall I do without a clean shirt,
And I going from home to-morrow?

A house I have, a wife I have,
And a burn at the end of the house, I have;
A pound of white soap I have,
And a dirty ugly shirt on me!

When I gave it to her to wash for me,
She just began to speak to me ;
And when I got it afterwards,
'Twas worse than as it was.

Every man will be asking me
Asking if a wife I have ;
Asking if a wife I have,
And a dirty ugly shirt on me !

A BADENOCH LEGEND

The farm of Laggan near Kingussie, was in olden days the residence of a famous witch called “ Bean-a-Laggan” or the Wife of Laggan. Adjoining the farm was the crofting township of “Tigh-na-Camahe”. These crofters and the Wife of Laggan were continually at cariance in consequence of the stock of one encroaching on the rights of the other. The crofters’shepherd whose holding was nearest to the farm, suffered the most from loss and annoyance.
Finding the Laggan sheep one day eating his corn, the shepherd put them in the poindfold and demanded payment for the damage done. The Wife paid the money grudgingly and and vowed that she would make the crofters rue it.
After this the shepherd’s cows fell sick and died, his barn was burnt down and his house became haunted by a large black cat of a ferocious aspect. These calamities frightened his wife and family so much that he was obliged to leave the district. But his departure did not put an end to the misfortunes of the crofters. These occured at one or other of the holdings almost daily.
Another shepherd had to be obtained, and finally the duties were taken up by Donald Bane, who had much skill and experience and under whose management a change for the better took place. He advised that all cows should have a sprig of bog fir attached to the horn or tail, that byres be protected from evil by rowan branches, and house doors by horse shoes.
Still the black cat prowled about, and chickens and eggs were frequently missed. Donald suspected that the culprit was something more than a cat, so he put a silver button in his gun, and when a favourable moment came he fired at the brute, hitting it on one of the hind legs. \the cat gave a great scream and disappeared. The next time the Wife of Laggan was seen, it was noticed that she walked with a halt.
Shortly after this, during the month of July, Donald was with the sheep on the hills, staying in the bothy at Corrour. After a wet day he was sitting at the fireside drying his clothes when presently a black hen walked in at the open doorway and took up a position near him beside the fire. The dogs growled and Donald blessed himself. He perceived that the hen grew bigger and bigger and at last assumed the form of the Wife of Laggan.
She opened the conversation by requesting the shepherd to tie up the dogs, evidently fearing attack from them.
“ I have nothing to tie them with” answered Donald.
Taking a few hairs from her head, she said “Here, tie them with these”.
Donald put the hairs on the sleeve of his wet coat. She then sprang upon him like a tigress, whiloe the dogs barked and snapped at her. This was evidently more than the woman bargained for, and she cried out “Tighten hairs; cut and strangle!” But after a severe struggle Donald prevailed, and the witch took to her heels, being chased by the dogs. Donald followed at dawn next morning.
A short distance from the bothy he found one of his dogs dead, with a piece of human flesh in his mouth.
On his arrival home, Donald was told that the Wife of Laggan was dying. He then related what had happened in the bothy. Thereafter a number of the men preceded to Laggan farm-house, but they were too late, for the witch had just died.
They carried the remains to the top of a round hillock near at hand (where Kingussie’s War Memorial has been erected [since re-located to Kingussie gardens]) and there burnt them. It is a remarkable fact that, when the hill was planted, no trees took root near that spot.

From ‘Legends of Badenoch’ pub. 1965 Jas. Johnstone and Sons at the Badenoch Printing Works.

DUALCHAINNT BHÀIDEANACH - Badenoch Dialect - Day 3

by noreply@blogger.com (Críostóir Piondargás) @ DROITSEACH

DUALCHAINNT BHÀIDEANACH - Badenoch Dialect - Day 3

In common with many in the Badenoch area, some of my family spoke Gaelic up until around the time of the Second World War. It is a source of much sadness to me that it no longer exists in its native form in the area. But such was the association with English as the language of progression that Gaelic usage gradually dwindled.

Alexander Macbain says in his paper of 1892 (from The Transactions of the Gaelic Society of Inverness) : “The number of Scotch and English words in the dialect of Badenoch is now very large; the people, especially the young people, appropriate English words, and impress them into a Gaelic sentence, with the utmost indifference. Such a sentence as follows I have good reason to believe was actually spoken by one Englified Gael from a far-away glen in the district;- " Tha mi 'g admiring most anabarrach am beauty aig an scenery th’ ann so"- “I am admiring most excessively the beauty of this scenery here." ”

The old family letters from the Macpherson chest are in English but my mother remembers the older relatives speaking to each other in Gaelic. How I would have loved to have been a fly on their walls.
There are now no remaining speakers of Badenoch Gaelic but there are two speakers of Strathspey Gaelic, one of whom is Dr Seumas Grannd who has researched both dialects. I am indebted to Dr Grannd for his kind permission to reproduce extracts of his paper here.

From looking at Dr Grannd’s research, it is apparent that Badenoch dialect shares many but not all the key features of Strathspey Gaelic. They are two distinct regions and it is possible that the geography of the area accounts for the difference in the dialects. Badenoch comes from the Gaelic ‘Bàideanach’ , meaning ‘the drowned place’, and the marsh of the NE part of Badenoch acts as something of a natural barrier between it and Strathspey.

SOME LINGUISTIC FEATURES OF BADENOCH GAELIC

I have been given kind permission by Dr Seumas Grannd to reproduce extracts of his paper “ The Gaelic of Strathspey and its Relationship with Other Dialects”, pub. Transactions of the Gaelic Society of Inverness, vol. LXI 1998-2000.

DROPPING OF –dh ENDING
For example: a’ bualadh (hitting) in Standard Gaelic becomes a’ buala’ in dualchainnt Bàideanach, a’ gearradh (cutting) becomes a’ gearra, samhradh (summer) becomes samhra’ and in the case of names Donnchadh would become Donncha’ and Murchadh would become Murcha’ in the dialect for example.

FINAL SLENDER nn PRONOUNCED ng
Dulachainnt Bàideanach has, in common with dualchainnt Strathspè, the “final slender nn when preceded by a close front unrounded vowel (the vowel normally represented by i in Gaelic) is pronounced as a medio-palatal nasal (a sound pronounced in a similar fashion to the ng in the English word ‘sing’)” according to Dr Grannd.
For example – (gu) tinn (unwell) becomes - gu ting in dulachainnt Bàideanach
Cinn (heads) becomes - cing, and grinn (lovely) becomes gling in the dialect.
(I have a fancy I heard this feature surviving in my elderly aunt’s spoken English but it could have been on account of her ill-fitting false-teeth).

DOWN(WARDS)
The adverb used for ‘down’ in Badenoch is a-bhàn. ‘He went down the stairs’ would be translated as ‘Chaidh e a-bhàn an staidhir’.
EAST (WARDS) and WEST (WARDS)
I quote here directly from Dr Grannd:
“ Although the principal meanings sìos and suas normally have in most dialects are ‘down(wards)’ and ‘up(wards), the principal meanings they have in Badenoch and Strathspey are are ‘east(wards)’ and ‘west(wards)’. This is probably due to the fact that the River Spey runs from the heights of Badenoch (in the west) to the lowlands of Moray (in the east).
The forms shìos and shuas are used in Badenoch and Strathspey for ‘east’ and ‘west’ where no movement is involved and have found their way into the toponomy of the area- the two entrances to Glen More, now known as the ‘Pass of Ryvoan’ and ‘The Sluggan’ were known to some of my informants as An Slugan Shìos ‘the eastern defile’ and An Slugan Shuas ‘the western defile’.”

(FRESH) WATER
The word used in most circumstances in dualchainnt Bàideanach is burn, whereas rain is uisg’ .
BOY
The form proitseach is used for ‘boy’ in the dialect.

There are two other features missing from this list but I am awaiting confirmation of these from Dr Grannd.

I have heard anecdotally that the genitives in the dialect can be different to Standard Gaelic but again need to confirm this with Dr Grannd before I can give any examples. In the word list I give below you will notice that the gender of nouns changes quite frequently in the dialect....something of a challenge for a learner like me!

Tu, when nominative to a verb is always aspirated (thu), except with is and in the future indicative and the two tenses of the subjunctive active. The unaspirated form is never used with the passive forms of the verb. The accusative form always thu. A tendency to use tu instead of thu after verbs ending in s must be carefully guarded against. 'S e chrùnas tu le coron gràidh, given in some editions of the Scriptures (some are correct) as the equivalent of it is he who will crown thee, in Ps. ciii, really means “it is he whom thou wilt crown”. In the same manner tu is erroneously used in, an Tighearn a slànaich thu, ma ta e ann a fhreagras thu, có a bhrathas thu? &c. “Thusa” ach sibhse dar bhios sibh ann 'ur taigh fhéin, “thou,” but “you” when you have a house of your own — example of the peculiar idiomatic use of thu and sibh —Badenoch.

But, as with all of us, everyday life has called Maureen back again and we must now think about what we'll focus on next here at the page. If you have ideas on that, on someone who would be an excellent TOSGAIR, or other any thoughts, could you please share those with us? :)

'S urrainn dhomh bruidhinn as leth Mhàirinn le bhith ag ràdh gum bitheamh i uamharraidh toilichte cluinntinn bho dhuine sam bith a bhitheamh airson a cuideachamh le Gàidhlig Bhàideanach. Cuir fios ga h-ionnsaigh an seo, no gu: maureen.hammond70@gmail.com

I know that I can speak on behalf of Maureen when I say that she would be absolutely delighted to hear from anyone willing to help with the resurrection of the Badenoch dialect. Get in touch with her here, or e-mail to: maureen.hammond70@gmail.com

Co-dhiù, shin agaibh mar a tha an saoghal aig DROITSEACH a-nochd. Gur math a bhitheas sibh uile!

Simon + Rita | Wilson Sarkis

Abair bliadhna no dithist!

by noreply@blogger.com (Críostóir Piondargás) @ DROITSEACH

Abair bliadhna no dithist!

What a year or two!

Thóisich DROITSEACH mar bheachd aig Àdhamh ann an agallamh le Ruairidh MacIlleathain a thàinig gu bàrr ann an COTHROM, An t-Earrach 2011....

DROITSEACH began as an idea about two years ago in the mind of Àdhamh as later enshrined in COTHROM magazine from Spring 2011....

Bhon sin, tha sinn air Gàidhlig Chomhghaill a thoirt air ais beò air fad agus bho cheann ceithir mìosan, tha sinn air a' chiad ceithir TOSGAIREAN fhaodainn, le dithist an imeas tighinn air aghaidh gu h-aithghearr....

Since then, we have brought Cowal's Scottish language entirely back to life and from when we founded the group in earnest in September, we have now got our first four ambassadors with another two waiting in the wings....

Cha tachair gas gun obair, gun mhiann, gun léirsinn 's cha ruig duine beò leas sam bith le bhith feitheachd an dòchas cead fhaodainn à ughdarras air choiriegin....

Nothing happens without work, without desire, without vision and not one of us will reach the slightest advantage by waiting for permission from authority....

'S ann aig Luchd na Misneachd a tha a' chànain a-nis. Chan eil bacamh no bulbhag nar rathad, nach tog sibh gloinn do bhliadhn' ùr nan dualchainnt!

It is with the People of the Passion that Gaelic now lies. There is neither barrier nor boulder in our way, won't you raise a glass to a new Year of the Dialects!

We are hitting the midpoint of the 2017 college football season, and this is when things start to get interesting. Games become more important as teams jockey for position for a place in the College Football Playoff.

This past weekend we saw two top 10 teams lose. Both Oklahoma and Michigan lost at home to unranked opponents. Michigan lost to in-state rival Michigan State, while Oklahoma blew a 17-point lead in losing to Iowa State. What that tells me is that Oklahoma and Michigan were ranked too high to begin with and never really were top-10 teams.

Looking at the top 10 now, the team that I feel is out of whack as far as rankings go is Penn State. Penn State’s schedule to date has been very easy, but their next three games will tell us how good they really are. The Nittany Lions are off this week, then they'll play Michigan at home and travel to Ohio State and Michigan State in their next three games. If they lose any of those games, their chances of getting into the playoff will become slim.

Speaking of Penn State, they have one of the most publicized players in the country in running back Saquon Barkley. At this point of the season, Barkley is the odds-on favorite to win the Heisman trophy. Many draft analysts also feel he is a top three-to-top five pick in the next NFL Draft and are comparing him to the Dallas Cowboys' Zeke Elliott. I say not so fast.

Though Barkley is very good, he is not the runner that Elliott is. If we had to compare Barkley to a recent draft choice it would be Carolina’s Christian McCaffrey. Barkley is a great all-purpose back — just like McCaffrey — because he is a runner, a receiver and a return man.

Looking at his numbers, Barkley only has two games this season in which he has run for over 100 yards and two games in which he didn’t get even 60 yards rushing. That’s not top-five production.

A running back who is starting to get some hard looks from NFL scouts is Stanford junior Bryce Love. Love was a backup to McCaffrey the past few years, and so he didn’t get the notoriety of others going into the season. As the main guy this year, Love is averaging over 200 yards a game and 10.5 yards per carry through six games. You can check him out Saturday night against Oregon.
