deas abbreviation

Hello everyone, long time no see. I am going through some bibliographical notes and keep coming across the abbreviation 'deas.' like in the below example: See ‘Dòmhnall Ruadh Chorùna’ (deas. le Fred MacAmhlaidh, 1995) p. 58.

Chan eil móran Gàidhlig aig Cill Rìmhinn, ach 's e àite glé mhath a th' ann. :D Mholainn dhut a thadhail.

Re: A dhà (#2) - Dè as toil leibh?

'S toil leam a bhith a' leughadh leabhar eachdraidh leis cupa ti agus briosgaidean. I like to read history books with a cup of tea and biscuits. Cha toil leam cofaidh. I don't like coffee.

Re: Guth nan Gàidheal air MixCloud

Thanks for your resonse! :) I'm glad you think it's something that could work for your show. My research isn't taking place until this summer, so it might be a better idea to wait until then, once I know better what I'm working with (and have actual research to talk about!).

Re: Guth nan Gàidheal air MixCloud

I have a question about getting involved - when you talk about "producing your show" on the page, does this mean a recurring show with several episodes, or could it just be a one-time thing? I ask because I've been funded by the University of St Andrews to do research this summer with the ...

Re: Dè tha thu a' dèanamh? / What are you doing?

Hahaha barrachd cofaidh gu dearbh. Cha toil leam seòclaid idir - suidheachadh ceudna. 8-)

Hahaha more coffee indeed. I don't like chocolate at all - same situation.

Re: CUMHA CHOIRE AN EASA

St John of the Rood seems a funny way to tr*nsl*t* the name of the saint who is more commonly called St John of the Cross. He was a Spanish mystic in the 16th century. However, his feast day is 14 December, not 14 September. It sounds like these two feasts have been erroneously combined on AFB. John...
