          I could be wrong, but I'd say it is spelled

          tapadh leit when speaking to one person

          tapadh leibh if speaking to more than one.

            Oh, yes...those verb conjugations---so necessary, and yet, much work to master---Thanks, Celyn

              Also...what language is that? How do you pronounce those words? I know that without hearing the words it will be a little "tricky" trying to get the sound right, but, for
              now, that's the best I can do. (in this format)

                It's gaelic, the Scottish type of course.
                It is rather difficult to describe but here goes,

                ta (very short a) pee ( short e leaning slightly towards an a) let (short e with an over pronounced t)

                ta pee let or in the plural ta pee live as in alive but with a cross between an I and an E

                Very difficult to describe pronunciation of the Gaelic language in english as many letters sound very different.

                If you are still struggling you have my tel no as I forgot to omit it from the sig of my email

                Confuse the locals, speak Gaelic.

                  tapadh leibh is also used when spoken to elders and strangers, whilst tapadh leit may be used when spoken to people of close relation and/or close friends. + younger kids etc.
                  atleast from what i remember.

                    It should actually be Leat, since leit(h)means shiver...
