sionnach commented on the word glaistig
If Debussy and Mendelssohn had been contemporaries, they could have collaborated on a piece called "L'apres-midi d'un glaistig". I'd buy that CD.

silas commented on the word glaistig
Of all the definitions I have read for various words... this one is, by far, my favourite:"Glaistig - Gaelic for beautiful fairy or, just the opposite, a hag in the shape of a goat."~ http://www.brownielocks.com/words.html ~I laugh every time.Some other sources describe the glaistig as being more like some demented faun, having the head and torso of a fairy, the lower body of a goat, and a certain bloodlust.http://www.mysteriousbritain.co.uk/scotland/folklore/the-glaistig.htmlhttp://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1O70-glaistig.htmlThe most complete definition I've managed to find, however, is on reference.com, which explains that the glaistig comes from Scottish mythology and that its shape and intentions vary from story to story.http://www.reference.com/browse/wiki/Glaistig
