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.

Good wee site! My grandmother was born in Scotland with last
name Darry and she married an Aitken. If you have those
names I'd love to hear from ye. Sorry my Scot is not good
(is it Scots, Scotch or Scottish?)
