chained_bear commented on the word camsthram
"(stress on first syllable), crooked, awry. 'He gets his clashes all camsthram' might be said of an unskilful ploughman. 'Clashes,' furrows. Manxcam, crooked, and probably trom, a weight, load. Irish has leath-trom, lop-sidedness, literally 'side-weight,' bearing to one side."
—W. Walter Gill, Manx Dialect Words and Phrases, 1934, online here.
