chained_bear commented on the word bainisq
"His wife, the tiny bainisq trudging at the head of the procession on her brother-in-law Hugh's arm, had no household of her own....
Bainisq, pronounced 'bann-eeshg,' meant a little old lady; was a little old man merely an 'eeshg'? I wondered, looking at Hugh's back."
—Diana Gabaldon, An Echo in the Bone (New York: Delacorte Press, 2009), 655
