  • "a currant bun (Kneen, Gool' on the Cushags). A remarkable reversion to the Gaelic order of noun and adjective. Such inversions almost always contain a Manx word as one element ; e.g., 'pintjough,' a pint-measure of ale (Brown 430); 'punchmullag,' the washings of a liquor-cask (V.A.D., "Punch-mullag"); and 'buddhree-mollag.'"
