Said of something which is defective, deceptive or invalid, a miss, misfit or misfire. A fault or a let in tennis or fives, a top or a slice in golf, a mis-cue in billiards, if the Manx-speaking world had played those games, would have been ' branglis.' "Cries Tom, 'it's branglis, that's not fair at all'" (Quarrie, "Old Times"), Manx braraglash, defined by Cregeen as "something wrong, in error, amiss."
—W. Walter Gill, Manx Dialect Words and Phrases, 1934
