Caraidean is also a plural form of caraid
But not used in the vocative case, right?
So is the command form always the same as the informal continuous form (e.g. "Stad!" and "a' stad")?
Nope, not always:
Well, it was wort a try :-)! Thanks for your fast reply!
Why stadaibh not just stad
It's the plural. Since you are talking to multiple 'friends', you need to use 'stadaibh' :)
Is it also used when speaking to an elder, as in "staidaibh, a sheanair"?
