can this word have the same double meaning of being in trouble as it does in english slang? "TOST ydy e!" "he's TOAST!"
Don't think so. "He's toast" as in "He's done for"?
Yeah,in that sense. I kinda regret asking now though, it is just slang that kids use really.
There's nothing wrong with asking :) For "He's done for" you could use Mae (hi) wedi canu arno fe = "It's sung on him". I don't know why we say that, but it conveys more or less the same meaning.
It's in reference to dirges, if I remember correctly
That's really interesting. Diolch.
In irish it's "tá a chosa nite" his feet are washed (for the coffin)
Autocorrect messed up my answer, but then it said the correct answer was "Ill." Anyone know why?
As well as being a noun meaning 'toast', tost is also an adjective meaning 'ill'.
