Tha thu ceart, a Leslie. Lorg mi "disregard" ann "The New  English-Gaelic 
Dictionary" le Thomson agus tha e ag radh "de\an di\meas air, no cuir an 
neo-shuim." 'S e facail u\ra a th'orra air mo shonsa. Tha mi ag ionnsachadh 
rudeigin u\r gach latha. Tapadh leat.

You are right, Leslie. I looked up "disregard" in Thomson's NE-GD and it 
says "de\an di\meas air, or cuir an neo-shuim". These are new words for me. 
I learn something new each day. Thank you.
