so how would you say 'she must be sorry/sad?' if using uirthi means both 'on her' and 'she must'???

[Is][sadness][on her] is 'She's sorry'. [Is][on her][to do] is 'She must do'? They use the same elements but I don't think they are similar enough to cause any real confusion but then I'm a much lower level than you so maybe you know something I don't.

Why "she is sorry" and not "she is sad"?

I am not sure but I think that sad and sorry might be interchangeable in this case

I know the Forum Guidelines proscribe posting messages that are essentially just 'thanks' but I'm glad there are people on here helping selflessly. Having said that, why would you put the month before the day (custom aside)?

There is no logical reason, it's just how Americans write the date. If you wrote "25 January" Americans would probably ask you why you wrote the date backward.
