-aig, -an, sf Thumb. 2 Great toe. Air òrdaig an làimhe deise, on the thumb of their right hand; air òrdaig an coise deise, on the great toe of their right foot; an òrdag an aghaidh na slaic, the thumb against the palm, the thumb at strife with the palm; òrdag an t-suic, see crann nan gad (p. 263); thug òrdag a choise sanas do bhun a chluaise, the toe of his foot gave a hint or whisper to (struck) the root of his ear, a graphic picture of the violence of the throw — he was not only thrown on his back but bis feet flew up in the air and his head so far rebounded that toe and ear met; òrdag, sgolbag, fionna-fada, mac an aba, cuibhteag (the names of the fingers or toes among children, beginning at the thumb or great toe).
