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).

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.
