bàs

-àis, sm Death. 2** Destruction. Is e rìgh nan uamhas am bàs, death is the king of terrors; chan eil bàs ach ruaig, there is no death but defeat; faigh bàs, die, starve; gheibh gach ni bàs, everything shall die; droch bhàs ort! bad death to you! (a common form of imprecation); guin bàis, the agony of death; dealan bàis, the lightning of death; ma shaltraicheas sluagh air mo bhàs, if people tread on my death a poetical substitution of death for the dead body, which is not apparent to those who blindly infer that bàs means a dead body.
