Can anyone help me? I'm doing a research paper on the syntax of Scottish Gaelic and have found myself slightly confused. Both the word 'dona' and the word 'droch' mean bad so when do you use one and when do you use the other?
For example I found a similar problem with the word 'good'. Both 'deagh' and 'math' mean good but 'deagh' seems to be used more to describe behavior while 'math' seems to be used more to describe one's physical condition. Does the same hold true for 'bad'? Is 'dona' used to describe behavior and 'droch' to describe physical condition? (I ask because the source I have says 'cù dona' means 'bad dog' but doesn't give an example of 'droch' so I have nothing to compare it too.)
If anyone could help me I would be forever greatful as this paper is due by Friday!
Thanks in advance,
