áilges n ā, f., later (?) u and o, m. The meaning and earlier
inflection are against analysis as deriv. of álaic (cf. Desid.
30Gloss.) though the rhyming exx. ( Met. Dinds. iii 62.107 and
bardic verse passim) indicate long á-. The length-mark is not
usual in early exx., and Thurn. Heldensage 69 , on the basis
of Corm. Y 62 , takes as compd. of 2 ail and geis `Schimpf-
Bitte
' (note that geis in general sense of request is poorly
35attested). Desid. Gloss. suggests compd. of áil and geis. In later verse with unlen. -g-, as shown by the rhymes quoted infra.
