S. Athrad Dhaer loc. “Great Ford”

S. Athrad Dhaer, loc. “Great Ford”
A proposed replacement for Sarn Athrad, translated “Great Ford” (WJ/338) and also appearing as Athrad Daer (WJ/335). It is a combination of athrad “ford” and the adjective daer¹ “great”. Since an adjective is usually lenited in this position, this makes Athrad Dhaer more likely to be the correct form.
