20 3 nád neg. adv. (a) used before a vb. or with copula in negative
answers repeating the vb. of a preceding question ; prob.
orig. the conj. 2 nád. `In ra gaib na comai sin ?' `Nad ra gaib
écin', TBC 1743 = nir gap, St. `In fetair-seo cia fath . . . ?'
`Nad edar-sa ōn om', TBC² 2223. With cop. : `Inn é Cormac

40(b) exceptionally used instead of ná in prohibition : nad
raid-siu sin, a meic ! say not so, TBC 1054. Cf. nad clechta err
oencharpait do imluad ar m'ési, FB 35 ; a prohibitive sent.
with subj. ? but perh. rel. referring to preceding : hi cocrichaib,
see 1 nád (c).

45 1 náde (náte) neg. particle used in answering a question,
really = nád (cop.) + hé (see Ped. ii 260 ), a particular case of
3 nád. in doich side do ? náde ní doich is it likely for him ?
nay, it is not likely
, Wb. 4b14 , cf. ib. 16 (náte). náte ní cloín,
4c17 (gl. numquid iniquitas apud Deum ? Absit). in ní nad
50ndíxnigider ? nate, Ml. 55c10 . cani epir ? náte atbeir does it
not say it ? nay, it saith it
, Wb. 10d5 (where Fr. si would be
used). In affirmation : in innonn less parbulus et nutrix ?
náde ǽm is innon verily it is the same, 24d11 .
In dissent from a proposal : `dogéntar airiut'. `Nate em' ol
55sesseom, BDD 21 = náte, BDD² 216.

2 náde ? partThe follg. exx. are prob. to be explained as = nád
(cop.) + é, :
(a) nade in meicc macc hui Chuind, ACC 104 ( RC xx 276 ) =
nad in meic mac hui Chuind, LU 1053 ; nade mc, YBL ; nade
60in meicc, Rawl. ; naidi in mac, Laud. The Comm. RC xx 276
gives the gloss : naide .i. cuich no cia. Náide an mac mac uí
Chuinn .i. cia an mac mac ui Chuinn ; folld. by O'Cl. giving
citation in the same form, and by P. O'C. Stokes translates :
`It is not the son's, the son of C.'s descendant.' The reading :
65 náde in mac may be connected with the follg. words : cuil
deim de eót, and may mean : the son of C.'s descendant is not
the son (who
. . .).
(b) nade .i. ni derna, ut poeta dicit : nade in corp atchí cen
chair | nach ní bad maith ┐ di[a] anmain [leg. maith dia a.], |
70acht is [é] a amles huile | dognid ar bith bar[r]buide, RC xx
276 ( ACC 104 Comm. ) = náide an corp adchi gan chair | nach
ní do mhaith dia anmain, O'Cl. s.v. naide (with gloss : naide
.i. ní dhearna). Stokes translates : `the body which thou seest did
not without sin aught that would be good for its soul
.' Perhaps :
75 it is not the body which sees without fault what would be, etc.
