"saor"?, I have never managed to find a cheap joiner! tha iad daor
This is a type of carpenter, right?
It’s similar, something between a carpenter and a handyman. A joiner would do woodwork + build kitchens etc.
It is related to English sawyer so meant someone who saws, though they do a lot more than that now.
Interesting. Didn't see the connection.
S e saor saor a th annam.
I am a cheap joiner ? Nice one Peter.
S e buidsear-fiodh a th annam.
I am a wood butcher? (another type of carpenter)
So maybe "'s e saor saor a th' annam" - I'm a cheap carpenter? ;-)
I wonder you'd say "I'm cheap"? Maybe use "tha mi" rather than "'s e ... annam"?
Yes. Both of those are right. Tha mi saor = 'I am cheap' or 'I am free' (in a non-monetary sense).
