[“Aona chuid” which is often met with, is simply the product of a drawling pronunciation]. An dara cuid … no …, either or …; an dara cuid, bithidh fuath aige do neach aca agus gràdh don fhear eile, no …, either he will hate the one and love the other, or …; an dara cuid dèanaibh a' chraobh math agus a toradh math, no dèanaibh …, either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make …; nuair a tha mi an am bruadair, tha mi an dara cuid ri camanachd air an raon, no ri luingearachd air a' chaol, no ri …, when I dream, I am either playing shinty on the plain, or boating on the narrows, or …; éighibh le guth àrd, oir is dia e! an dara cuid tha e a' beachd-smuainteachadh, no tha e air tòir, no …, cry aloud, for he is a god! either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or … [Dara does not associate with a negative verb].
