Couldn't agree more re Pig. Did he like deciphering that dialect? He did
nae! >>

Thank you, Kieran! LOL, as they say on the web.

I have, however, read _Riddley Walker_, _Feersum Enjin_, and several even
harder-to-decipher works, so I found this pretty mild. As with other
dialect-overload books, it helps to mutter along as you read. I find Remora
and Incus more annoying auctorial devices.

Dinna fash yourself.

Irish overall)
