[GA] Thu\irt Paul McGeady:
 
> How does one say Flame and Flame War in Gaelic, Irish, Gaelilge etc.
 
"Flame" = "Lasair" sa Gha\idhlig Albanach.
 
"Flame war" - "Cogadh nan lasraichean"   ?
           no "Cogadh lasrach" 's do\cha ?
 
Car coltach ri "laser wars" sa Bheurla, ach chan eil na lasraichean cho
pongail no cho beachd 's a tha na "lasers".
 
Tha am facal "lasair" ann ann an Ga\idhlig E/irinn cuideachd.
Air neo, ghabhadh rudeigin a dhe/anamh leis na faclan seo:
 
    bladar, 1f. flattery, "blather"
    bladhaire, 4f. blaze, flame
    bladhm, 3b. flame, blaze
    bladhmann, 1f. bragging, bombast
