-e, -ean, sf (WC) Light shake or dip of anything. 2 Dry meal put on cakes when being fired. Fallaid is the refuse of meal left on the baking-board after a batch of bread has been baked. An interesting custom prevails in the Outer Hebrides, any remains of meal on the board being made into a cake in the palm of the hand and set to fire among the other and larger cakes. The custom has its origin in a superstitious belief, that doing thus with the remains keeps the store of meal from wasting. No thrifty wife would think of dusting the baking-board into the meal girnel — DC.
