Thanks for the message. Yes, the best thing would have been to have moved them all myself, but it is a daunting task and I don't have time at the moment. The urgent thing in the short term, as I see it, is stop contributors from adding more Scottish Gaelic (and Irish Gaelic as well) words where they don't belong. Caoimhin 11:23, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

Why did you request words to be added - then add them yourself? You might like to format them according to the links in our standard welcome text. SemperBlotto 17:10, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

Scottish Gaelic[edit]

Hi, concerning your question about the existance of Scottish Gaelic words: yes, they are valid, and that's because this is not exactly an English dictionary, rather it is a dictionary *written in* English. A multilingual one. That is to say, that any word in any language are valid, but they should be explained in English, for an English-speaking audience. Compare this with gd.wiktionnary which (I suppose...) has the rule of allowing e.g. English words, as long as they're described in Scottish Gaelic. Hope this is answer to your question.
