Reiver 2 Meaning of 'seanmas'- Gaelic? (26) RE: Meaning of 'seanmas'- Gaelic? 27 Oct 04

I don't know if Animaterra is still interested in exploring this, but here's another reply to my AIMS inquiry. In case anyone wants to open it up for Scots Gaelic;

"Bryce, this added note is from a bona fide Scotsman living in Texas.


In the Scots Gaelic a musician is a fear - ci^oil the accent ^ over the "O" a minstral would be either cruitear or cl^arsair the ^accent over the first "A"

There is a definate difference between a musician and a minstral in the concept of the word. A musician plays an instrument. A minstral may act out while playing an instrument and usually tells a story, via a rhyme, poem or song.

Hope this helps a bit.
