Forms: in-, in-, in-, in-, ínnair, hinarmaighe, incathe, h-ion-Con-cculaind, hingallru, inrigh

in adjectival formation. Adjj. are formed by composition of the particle in- (which Pedersen Vgl. Gr. § 358 (f) regards as probably an intensive prefix but see Ériu xx 83 ) with (a) a substantive (the term ionshamhlughadh is applied to this type of adj. in IGT Introd. 33 § 151 , § 152 ) or vn. or (b) a participle in -t(a)e, -th(a)e. These adjectives are indeclinable and those in group (a) have the meaning capable of, fit for, proper for, worthy of (the action, thing or person expressed by the substantive): with the vn. the sense is usually passive: ` fit to be ....' If formed with the part. they have nearly always the force of the Lat. gerundive.

in- lenited the following initial, but in some later examples sh- is replaced by ts-.

(a): [Where the substantive compounded with in- was an o-stem, the resulting adj. was an i- stem. Hence it came to be considered that these adjj. were formed with the gs. of the subst., and many of the later exx. consist of in-+g s. of a subst. See GOI § 345 ]. ¤accra capable of being claimed: imḟorcraid ro b'ināirme na cindedh comloinn ro b'inagra, MR 268.19 . ¤aicde ` capable of acting as surety ' (Plummer MS. notes): frisin raith innaicde, O'Curry 67 (< H 3.18, p. 24b ). ¤affrinn fit to offer Mass; suitable for the offering of Mass: nír inaiffrind in altóir i nfécmais in tréidhe sin, SG 31.11 . an sacart do-chī an aisling sin nī h-in-aifrinn hé, De Contemptu 986. ¤áig capable of giving battle: in nech ba hionáigh gan oil, Duan.

Forms: ra, doràla, ri, dogní, dorigéni, dorigni, re, relic, reilced, níro, náro, coro, nír, nár, cor, ro, doro-r-ban, duforbad, do-r-airngert

preverb used with various forms of a finite vb. whether simple or compound; lenites follg. consonant except, in Old Irish, when in pretonic position. (Its use as a fixed preverb in the composition of many compd. vbs. is not dealt with here). Under the accent it somet. assumes the form ra, e.g. doràla (= do-ro-la); and in O.Ir. becomes ri in the vb. dogní (pret. 3 s. dorigéni, dorigni); with léicid, re ( ní relic , Ml. 23b4 , nach reilced , 49a10 ). It is often attached as enclitic to a conjunct particle: níro, náro, coro, later nír, nár, cor.

In O.Ir. when used with a compd. vb. ro orig. followed all fixed preverbs: doro-r-ban (to-ro-ben-), Ml. 62a20 , duforbad (to-fo-ben-), 92b4 ; but this rule becomes obsolete already in the O.Ir. period: do-r-airngert, Wb. 14c32 . Thurn. Hdb. §§ 520 - 3 . ZCP xii 286 .

In O.Ir. the vbs. ro-fitir (really a perf. tense, see (a) follg.), ro-cluinethar and ro-laimethar drop ro- only when preceded by another conjunct particle. For etymology and syntactical uses see Zimmer, KZ xxxvi 433 ff. ; Thurneysen, KZ xxxvii 52 ff. and ZCP xii 286 ; Strachan, Phil. Soc. Trans. 1896, 77 ff. ; 1897, 326 ff. ; 1899, 408 ff. ; RC xxiii 201 ; M. L. Sjoestedt-Jonval, Études Celt. iii 105 ff. , 219 ff.

Used (a) with the pret. to express a perfect. ro comalnisid-si an ro pridchissem-ni dúib, Wb. 26b6 . In mod. Ir. it is displaced by do except after a neg. or a syntactical preverb: do ghabh, nír ghabh, gach ar ghabh sé.
