Forms: á-, ailgess, ailgis, ailgais, algis, algais, hālgese, algessi, algaisse, ailgeasa, t-álgas, áilgi[o]s, algiusa, ailciusa, alghusa, álghais

n ā, f., later (?) u and o, m. The meaning and earlier inflection are against analysis as deriv. of álaic (cf. Desid. Gloss.) though the rhyming exx. ( Metr. Dinds. iii 62.107 and bardic verse passim) indicate long á-. The length-mark is not usual in early exx., and 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 attested). Desid. Gloss. suggests compd. of áil and geis. In later verse with unlen. -g-, as shown by the rhymes quoted infra.

Forms: geisi, gessi, gessi, geisi, gesse, geisse, geis, geasa

n f. g s. geisi, Trip. 42 , 10.10 . ? gessi, SR 3635 . n p. gessi, LL 220b32 . geisi, Laws v 352.2 . a p. gesse, SR 26 . geisse Rawl. 84a43 . geis, IGT Decl. § 14.16 ; § 115 . In early Mod. Lit. pl. geasa. Connected with guidid `prays.' Cf. geis .i. guide, O'Curry 2016 ( H 4.22, 36a ); ailges a prayer or request, the refusal of which brings reproach or ill-luck. See Thurn. Heldensage, p. 80 , and cf. Corm. Y 62 . Cf. also oll-geisi `great demands,' Laws v 352.2 , which glosses ailgeasa. See further Ériu xxxii 161-62 , Studia Celto-Slavica iii 18 . In older literature generally:

(a) prohibited act or person , a tabu, a prohibition , the infraction (`coll' `milliud') of which involved disastrous consequences. Sometimes these `gessi' were fortuitous, originating in the fact that a certain course of action had produced disastrous results in the past, sometimes they were rules of honour or prudent abstention, often they rested on deep-seated primitive beliefs and ideas. Such tabus might be attached to a rank or office, e.g. the tabus laid on the king of Tara and on some of the provincial kings, Leb. Cert. 2 - 24 (where they are also called urgartha `things forbidden,' and opposed to buada = ada `lucky things' or `things prescribed'). Cf. for opposition of buada and geasa, Hy Maine 13.21 , and of ada and geis, CCath. 1166 . See also Macalister, Temair Breg; Baudiš, Ériu viii 104 seq. Frazer, Golden Bough, ch. xxvii § 1 (abbr. ed.), Celtica xxiii 38-59 . They might bind a whole community, TBC-LL¹ 1190 ; RC viii 56.12 . More often they were restrictions on an individual, either owing to the predictions of druids or soothsayers that certain actions would bring ill-luck, or imposed on him by another who had power to punish their violation, or who trusted to his sense of honour or his fear. For a list of Cú Chulainn's gessi see RC xiv 398.

Oen do gessib Ulad labrad ria n-a ríg ┐ óen do gessib in ríg labrad riana druidib, LL 263b17 ( MU 12 ). Cf. TBC-LL¹ 4724 . rochoillsiut ... geissi Conuiri, IT i 130.18 . Commonly as pred. with copula (expressed or understood) and DO (in later texts sometimes FOR) of person: is gess damsa ... dám óenmná do airitin iar fuiniud grene, LU 6986 ( BDD 63 ). geiss dó cárna a chomanma do ithi, RC iii 176.17 . fa geis do Fhothud Cananne ol corma cin chinnu marbu ina fhiadnaise, RC xiv 242.20 . CRR § 23 . Ogam ... ba ges do dul sech gan a legad, Auraic. 5943 . is geas damhsa gabháil tré dhorus éuluighthe, Oss. iii 58.5 . Foll. by CEN to express the idea of a positive injunction: is geis dond ríg cen an ro raid B. do dénam do, LU 10480 . ba do gessib C. cen adall fulachta dia chathim, RC iii 176.17 . geis fair ... cen chomrac n-oenḟir do ḟuacra, TBC-LL¹ 1231 . ba geis dissi cen a fothrucud, LL 125a6 . Sometimes gessi were attached to particular places or objects: tosōisom iarum clār clē a charpait fri hEmain, ┐ ba geis dī annīsin, TBC-I¹ 716 . MR 70.12 , MacCongl. 15.11 - 14 . trí geassa robadar for in sléig sin, Cóir Anm. § 41 ( IT iii 306.6 ). Cf. Keat. ii 4388 ; TD 19.9 ; Metr. Dinds. iii 230.56 . Used elliptically (of persons): gabais cach a suide ... eter gess ┐ nemgess those who were tabu and those who were not, BDD § 59 = BDD² 525.

(b) a positive injunction or demand: ní fil nech ... béras sein ... cora ícthar a gesse .i. enchennach Mercúir ... ┐ claideb Ulcáin, LL 220b26 ( TTr. 257 ). budh ghes do scéith Ch. géimedh le foréigin an tí air a mbeidh C.'s shield was bound to cry out, Trans. G. S. i iv 96.4 . ba geis di í féin d'fhothragadh san tobar ... gacha maidne, Keat. ii 3288 . (Cf. for different construction LL 125a6 supra.) An dara geis gan a ainm do thabhairt ... d'aonlaoch, Keat. ii 3386 . Gen. a solemn adjuration, command or prohibition from one person to another with imprecations or threats of misfortune in case of refusal (the ordinary sense in romantic lit.): do bertsat ... gesa agus airmberta for Coincculainn, da ttísadh úadh gan aidmilliudh furre, TBC-LL¹ 2295 . Cf. ITS v 112.22 . BS 102.19 . is olc na geasa do chuiris orm, Oss. iii 54.z . cuirim ort de gheasaibh i n-ainm Íosa a innsin, Eochairsg. 90.12 . geis Ruadháin, R's inderdiction (i.e. against Tara), TD 28.42 . Hence of the imprecations or ill-luck which follow the disregard of the `geis': geis fort ... da caithe tú biadh, Ériu iii 162.16 . g.¤ dó ... muna imre fi[th]chill rum-sa, ib. 12 . cuirim fa gheasaibh atha ┐ aidhmhillte thu ... muna m-beirir me fein lat, Oss. iii 54.20 . Mór tarla ar an ngeis ngnáthaigh `the wonted trouble,' TD 10.19 .

(c) something unlawful or forbidden; a wrong: gen gnim ṅgessi, SR 3635 . gach duine ghabhas geis eagcóir `an injustice,' Dán Dé xxxi § 20 . gach neach dhíbh dá ndéanann geis, § 21 . óicfher les nach geabtha geis, Irish Texts ii 32.9 . ? Ocus cath Ocha ... is mó gessib, Arch. Hib. ii 58 § 3 . In common phrase `cen geis' in poetry gen. as cheville = without wrong, flaw, fault (?): méraid cen galar, cen geiss, Metr.

(d) a spell, an incantation: cosna gessi (sic) gráda with love spells, Metr.
