>Does the construction of the sentence sound a bit awkward to you?
Yes, but now that you explain it I can see how the sentence is put together.
I was very reluctant to change 'buaid' to 'bad', but I couldn't make heads
or tails of the passage otherwise.
>"úair" "because" has a palatalised "r"; "úar" with non-palatalised "r"
The DIL uses 'úar as the head-word for the entry, but all the examples it
cites use 'uair'. How did they choose the form of the word to use as the
head-word? Oldest form? Most common?
