I guess that it would be difficult to find someone proficient in Greek, Hebrew & Ulster Scots to do the translating.

Any chance of government support for the Ulster-Scots Athletic Association for promoting Ulster-Scots football? You know, that ancient game originating in Cullybacky that's just like soccer but they raise a fleg on the flegpole before every game.
Ha, funny you mention that but I’ve oft slagged the odd crackpot on here that they missed a trick in 1998 when they were making up the whole Ulster Scots thingy ...... surely that was their chance not only to have a foil for Irish but for the GAA .. :?

But maybe they could make one up yet ....... Land Rover water cannon diving looks fun :shock:

It's pretty obvious that you are no linguist.
Let's look at "valve" first:
valve (n.)
late 14c., "one of the halves of a folding door," from Latin valva (plural valvae) "section of a folding or revolving door," literally "that which turns," related to volvere "to roll," from PIE root *wel- (3) "to turn, revolve." Sense extended 1610s to "membranous fold regulating flow of bodily fluids;" 1650s to "mechanical device that works like an anatomical valve;" and 1660s in zoology to "halves of a hinged shell." Related: Valved.
So it's from Latin.
I don't think that even you imagine that "tricuspid" is based on English roots?
Well just in case:
tricuspid (n.)
1660s, from Latin tricuspidem (nominative tricuspis) "three-pointed," from tri- (see tri-) + cuspis "point" (see cusp).
Now, you asked what the Irish is?
Simples:
seach-chonair an chomhla thríchuspaigh
Any more questions?

Indeed sir, he is such a little AH, millions of Americans would exchange their pearly whites to have Irish blood in their DNA.

Ironically, so-called "Ulster Scots" is primarily English, with a mixture of low land Scots dialect words and anglicised Irish Gaelic ones.

It would be more accurate to call it "Caledonian-English".

The BBC took 'A Kist o Wurds' off the air when they realised the "Wurds" were all English.

Hahahahaha.

No doubt about it but locationally challenged Unionists trapped in Ireland are great for an aul laugh.
