Gaelic bits

Here are a couple of very brief audio clips of Gaelic phrases, courtesy of Cathy MacGregor, who posted these on Compuserve today.

Clicking on either of the links below will take you to a post on the Compuserve Books and Writers Community, where you will see the file as an attachment.  You will need an audio player that can play m4a files in order to listen to them.



"Fuirich agus chi thu"

That's "wait and see" in Gaelic. One of Diana Gabaldon's favorite phrases. <g> You may remember the Gaelic phrase from AN ECHO IN THE BONE.  Claire says it to Lord John in chapter 98, "Mischianza".

(Feel free to copy the button, by the way.  I created it a couple of years ago but I'm happy to share it!)



"Nollaig Chridheil, agus bliadhna mhath ur!"  (Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!)

Thanks very much to Cathy MacGregor for sharing these with us!
