http://www.scots-online.org/grammar/gaelic.htm Tha i air radh. She'ss efter sayin. She had said. this is actually the ROUGH equivalent to: she HAS said. ------------------------ the rough equivalent to: "BHA i air radh" [she was after saying] would be: she had said. ------ other points: the "after" syntax. actually, this comes [probably] from pre-celtic, or possibly specifically [pre-celtic] pictish, then into british [="welsh"], spoken in strathclyde before gaelic came from ireland, and from british into gaelic as gaelic arrived in strathclyde from ulster with columba. the scots syntax with AFTER is IDENTICAL to that of welsh, but a bit different from that of irish, especially non-ulster irish. i know this, as im a gaelic speaker and a welsh speaker. btw, your site is great.
