Celtic Alphabet Game

Postby księżycowy » 2012-05-27, 20:49

Since the sub-forums are all shmushed together, why not have a few games for all Celtic languages? A little Celtic unity might be a good thing. :yep:

If you don't know the rules, check here.

[flag]gd[/flag] saor
free; cheap

Doesn't seem like it would be easy to distinguish the meaning even in context...

Yeah, this one's weird. The use of "saor" for "cheap" comes from "saor an-asgaidh" which lit. means "free of charge." "Saor" originally simply meant "free (of any restraints)". But now, if someone says something is "cheap" it's "saor" but if it's free of charge it's "an-asgaidh". "Saor" still means "free" for things that are liberated or independent, like the slogan "Saor Alba" = "Free Scotland."
