In later lang. ă is used as glide with e before neutral cons. (see under e), and is used itself with follg. glide -i- before palatal cons. with increasing regularity from the O.Ir. period on; also as glide in O.Ir. before final -e, -i preceded by neutral cons. (daltae, daltai, etc.), see Thurn. Gramm. § 87 , § 98 . ă appears for o in certain phonetic environments, § 81 . § 82 , § 95 ; on the alteration a/e (daig, dego; saigid, segait) see § 83 and Celtica iii 182 ; on the spellings au, ai before u-quality consonants see Thurn. Gramm. § 80 . In the classical lang. ă alternates for metrical purposes with ŏ and ŭ (even in stressed syllables with certain limitations), and á with ó, see TD Introd. lxvi , IGT Introd. § 141 , § 143 . Long á is sometimes spelt aa in O.Ir., see Thurn. Gramm. § 27 .

In native words ă represents Indo-European *ĕ and *ə, Thurn. Gramm. § 50 ; original *ā in final unstressed syllables, § 93 ; original *e in certain proclitics (la, amm, etc.), § 115 . It appears as a secondary vowel after syncope and loss of final syllables with nasals, l and r (immainse, cétal, arathar), § 112 . It also arises with original vocalic sonants (other than *i and *u) in certain phonetic contexts, §§ 213, 215 .

Long á represents Indo-European *ā and *ō, Thurn. Gramm. § 51 , and also *ă after compensatory lengthening, § 125 .

The diphthong , ái represents Indo-European * ai and *oi, §§ 66 ff. , and aú, áu (archaic) Indo-European *au, *ou, etc., § 69 .

In Latin loanwords ă represents ă, Ped. § 121 , and somet. ŏ, § 122. Long á represents ā, § 126 ; and occasionally ă, § 121 . The diphthong goes back to ae in saígul, § 132 .

Forms: á, e, a, a

In O.Ir. also á (see Celtica ii 339 - 40 ), e ( Thurn. Gramm. 285 ). Poss. adj. (proclitic form of , q.v.) of 3 s. m. and n. (leniting), 3 s. f. (geminating) and 3 pl. of all genders (nasal- ising). When a numeral intervenes between poss. and noun the usage fluctuates. The older is represented by a nda ara. LU 4729 , the later by a da nduma, LL 1541 , where the initial of the noun is mutated independently of the numeral. The poss. of the third person is also used in combinations such as adám my two, adád your two, adár our two. Similarly with trí. See Ériu xi 146 ff. and the numerals , trí.
