I have a question cause those question never mention if it's about me you them etc, how are we supposed to know? There others sentences where we see that there is thu or mi to make the difference but here... I don't know Tapadh leibh

So far it's only "orm"=I have ...on, or "ort"= you have..on. probably more to come?

My grandfather referred to his flat cap as a bonnet, or in the Scots, bunnet, so I think cap should be an acceptable answer.

I was wondering if bonnet means hat?

It's the traditional flat cap worn in Scotland.

What is the difference between "cap" and "bonnet" ? I'm French and I thought that cap = bonnet in English. Tapadh leibh !

In Scots a "bunnet" is a flat cap usually worn by men while a bonnet in Standard English usually refers to an old fashioned hat for ladies, or a baby's hat with ribbon ties. Also a decorated hat for Easter!

How do you say "I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you" in Gaelic?
