n io, m. See Zimmer, KZ xxx 35 - 43 . Except somet. in legal sense (d) usually with prec. possess. or follg. gen. and tending to function as a pronoun rather than as an ordinary noun. The main meanings as noun are client and fellow , the term always implying a relationship. It is doubtful (see Zimmer) whether this was originally one of inferiority or one of equality.

(a) servant, bondsman, vassal, subject : `ceile' as ainm do gach oglách, Metr. Gl. 28 § 45 . c.¤ .i. óglach, O'Cl. húasal-athraig, cliatha fáithi, / do Chríst cíaptar céli, Fél.

(b) In phr. c.¤ Dé = eccles. Lat. servus Dei ( Thes. ii 265.5 from Ardm. 11ra ). Cf. is cele dǽ infer hisin, Ml. 30c3 . Freq. as name of member of a class of religious distinguished by special observances and practices, appar. of a stricter nature than those of others. Hence Engl. Culdee , in pl. also Keledei, Colidei . The precise connotation of the term is uncertain. See Reeves (W.), The Culdees of the British Islands, Dublin 1864 ( Trans. RIA xxiv ), Stokes, Fél. Introd. xxvii f. ; Mon. Tall. 122 - 3 , Rule of Tall. ainmne ilao ┐ in naidchi ni longe colonge celede remut no fer fa sruithiu, Reeves Culdees 145 (Life of S. Findan). lasna celiu dé, Mon.

for `dni' AFM v 1552 read didiu ( dī, Aut. MS fo 87 a ).

Of the Old-Ir. forms dono arose from dano, as ocus from acus, under the influence of the u-shaded `n.' At the time of the Würzburg Glosses dano was still kept distinct from dono, the latter being used after interrogatives apparently as an enclitic, without accent: ar cia dono, Wb. 2 d 10 . cepu dono, 7 d 16 . ce dono, 8 d 15 (cf. cid dono, Laws i 48. 24 ; 54. 3 f.b. ).

The syncopated Mid.-Ir. forms dno, no retaining `o' show that also in Old-Ir. the stress fell on the ultimate, as dano stressed on the penultimate would have given Mid.- Ir. dana. The Mid.-Ir. writing denu ( RC xii 72 § 44 , cf. dechum, debert) points in the same direction. Compare also the writing doná in the FM. In poetry the accent falls on the ultimate:

Acall. 3852 : mairg dadhair don luing dana. nachasainic Tonn Chlidna.

The syncopated form is often used in poetry for the convenience of the metre. It appears in several poems ascribed to poets of the 11th and 12th centuries, e.g.

LL 144 a 9 : Almon rathuit artús dā (dno leg.) i nEtail ra Troiano.

(a poem by Giolla an Choimdhedh Ua Cormaic of the early 12th century).

LL 8 a 39 : anmand tri mac Nemid dā (dno leg.) Luach Cessarni ┐ Luachro.

(poem by Tanaidhe Ua Maoilchonaire †1136; v.l. no, BB 46 a 19 ).

LL 34 b 31 : i ndáil fer talman sund dno [labrad] (cf. l. 43 ) lá is aidchi rempo.

(poem by Cúán O'Lothcháin †1024).

Further in a 10th-century poem from Rawl. 1 a 1 , Hib. Min. 40 st 3 :

fuilriud már guin dóine dno ocus plág for pecthacho.

in Fingen mac Flainn's poem on the Fir Arddae from the middle of the 9th century, ACL iii 297 st 60 :

ní mandingentar dno dóibsium dál ndrong ndelech.

and ICM st 188 :

atchitis dno (sic leg.) triasan tor sin forsin dorus atreab nálaind &c.

This brings us back to the time of the Codex Sangallensis; whence it follows that dno, though not occurring in any MS older than the LU, belongs to the Old-Ir. period.— No was developed from dno in Mid.-Ir. time. It seems impossible to fix the date of this development accurately. The appearance of `no' in old poetry, as BB 46 a 19 , 297 b 42 , is no test, as no might be a late substitute for dno. The fact that the earliest instances occur in the LL points to the 12th century. In Mid.-Ir. MSS dā, dno, and no go hand in hand. The spoken form was dno, later no; but the traditional writing dā lingered on for centuries in the MSS. No is found in MSS from the early 13th to the 15th century, when it became obsolete. The FM write doná, dana, dna, purely literary forms. In the Annals of Ulster the particle does not in any form occur after the year 1204 ( AU ii 242. 2 ).

In Mid.-Ir. no syntactical distinction is made between dā, dno, dna, and no. The particle is never placed at the head of the sentence, but can, apart from this, occupy almost any position within it. It follows stressed and unstressed words, and appears particularly often after emphasising particles, a circumstance which contributed to the syncope of the first syllable. It gives a certain emphasis to the accented word immediately preceding. The following is a synopsis of the most common positions of the particle:

(1) asbeir daniu ind apstol, Cambr. 37 d. torchratar no muinter Fintain, LL 91 a 54 . bemmini dano, Wb. 9 c 10 . mathidsom dano, Mon. Tall. 138. 26 . dogénsa no, CRR § 9 .

(2) abi mogasi dano, Wb. 27 c 17 . (is) maith dano, ib. 33 a 5 . bat roumal dano in fer sin, Mon. Tall. 159. 2 . is ferr dano lais, ní haurcuil dano lais MT.

(3) issí dano, Wb. 19 b 12 . issed dano, Mon. Tall. 136. 13 et pass. cipé no, TBC-LL¹ 200 .

(4) (a) uait no, CRR § 7 . dóib no, TBC-LL¹ 3239 . (b) is samlid dano, Wb. 21 b 2 . etrunni dano, ib. 12 b 12 . forthusom no LL 172 b 48 . uaimse no, TBC-LL¹ 4305 .

(5) is annsin dano tanccatar, BDD 151. 7 . intan dano, ib. § 162 . on uair dano ronuc, Laws i 18. 11 .

(6) a forbi tra dano, Mon. Tall. 128. 7 .

(7) after a noun in all cases except the vocative: nom. in hilur dano asberr a rind hi roṡoithe, Sg. 73 a 11 . gabtha díberg dano la suide, BDD § 41 . Diarmait dano abb ĺa lais, Mon. Tall. 153. 17 . acc. nicodoes mír feolai dano, Mon. Tall. 129. 22 . gen. cend Ferchon Longsig no, LL 80 a 44 . bóisom ic fechadh a bhráthar no, TBC-LL¹ 3885 . dat. do díb lethaib no, LL 175 a 42 . da saigid no, TBC-LL¹ 4261 .

Dā, no (&c.) is a particle mainly employed in principal clauses, though both in Old- and Mid.-Ir. it also appears in secondary ones. Already in Old-Ir. often = didiu, trá. In Mid.-Ir. MSS the interchange between dā, dī, tra, and imorro is quite common; cf. Windisch's note IT Glossary 467 . dā, LL 316 b 28 = dī, BB 133 b 9 . Particularly common issed dī = issed dā, nó dī = nó dō.

Forms: otbert, otchuala, ótconnairc, ót[h], óthá, ós, ósa, obsa, órba, obtar, ó

conj. Orig. the prep. ó governing a subord. noun-clause and itself belonging in syntax to the main clause, but later felt as a conj. belonging to the subord. clause. See Thurn. Thurn. Hdb. § 466 , Pedersen Vgl. Gr. ii § 511 Anm. It must be distinguished from ó n- (= prep.+ rel.) preceding a subord. clause, e.g. hua mbi from which is, Tur. 10 ; hua n-erbirmis, Ml. 135d3 ; ho torgab whereby he committed, 32a23 . The form ua is not used as conj. (but cf. hu-batar, Ml. 63a4 ).

Lenites the follg. vb.: o chretsit, Wb. 31c7 . o chaithes, PH 4799 . o dhoriachtatar, 190 . In Mid.Ir. often causes elision of initial a in vbs. compounded with ad- (at-): otchí, PH 4606. otbert, 6566 . otchuala, 1008 . ótconnairc, TBC-LL¹ 3889 , cf. 3913 (both St.); but: o atchuala, PH 491 , cf. 96 , 100 . o atcondcatar, 355 . Cf. otnocbat (= o don-ocbat), TBC-LL¹ 5674 , an analogous form. Occas. eclipsis occurs in pret. forms of the subst. vb.: o mboi, PH 689. ó mbátar, 5035 , cf. 1719 , 5110 .

Folld. by the deuterotonic form of compd. vbs.: ó dom- anicc, Wb. 12c9 . ó do-ánic, Ériu iv 28.18 . o doraitne, PH 1349 . Later conjunct forms come into use, ó thánic, etc. The preverb ro retains its accent after ó, except with cop. (see below); but: ór fhég, LL 142a11 .

With the pres. tense of the subst. vb. ó is employed like a preverb, forming a virtual compd.: 1 s. ót[h], LU 2985 , LL 249b3 ( TBFr. 133 ), ZCP vii 301 § 10. 3 s. óthá (which early develops into a prep., see óthá).

With cop.: pres. 3 s. o as, LU 1514 ( MU 52.8 ); generally with elision ós; ósa (common in PH and later Mid.Ir.). pret. 1 s. ? obsa, IT iii 68.3 . (with ro-) or bam, IT i 120.23 . LL 282a12 . 3 s. órba, BColm. 96.4 . 3 pl. obtar, ZCP xii 378.22 . With neg.: ó nach (ná); ó nár.

I As temporal conj., the orig. sense being distance from a certain point (event, etc.) expressed by the subord. clause.

(a) the ó-clause states the point of time at which the action (state) of the main clause began, since , Lat. ex quo. Folld. by a pret. in O.Ir. (in Mid.Ir. sometimes perf.). hó boí mo chland is oc frecur ceill Dae atáa since my clan came into being, it has been engaged in worshipping God, Wb. 29d6 . hu batar sidi i nEgipt (gl. ab Egypto [usque adhuc]), Ml. 63a4 . tri chét bliadna . . . o bāte and Eocho find since E. was drowned, LU 2986. ni ḟuilet trí thráth and o thucus-[s]a trí laíchcind uait, IT i 102.9 . cosindiu . . . ó gabus-sa Crúachna, FB 44. atú-sa sunn . . . o rogenar since my birth, IT i 120.20 . atu-sa or bam noídiu cot ḟognam since my childhood, LL 282a12 . coic laithe deg o do benadh iad from the time they were cut, Fl. Earls 196.1 . ní tháinig fear ó fearadh an díle, Keat. Poems 822.

When the action of the ó-clause is conceived as still con- tinuing, the pres. tense is used: ó tú-sa isin dún-sa as long as I have been here, LL 249b3 ( TBFr. 133 ). tri chét bliadna o tú sund, LU 2985. is cían o as fásach it has long been waste, 1514 ( MU 52.8 ). nocha cuinnghim bethaid mbí | o tú ar síth mo Righ amuigh as long as I am outside my King's peace (?), ZCP vii 301 § 10 .

(b) the action of the ó-clause is anterior to that of the main clause, when, after = Lat. postquam; with a vb. in perf. tense. (If the vb. of the main clause is past, that of the ó-clause represents pluperf.) o adcuaid ruín ícce in cheneli doíne . . . asber iarum after declaring the mystery . . . he then says, Wb. 21d11 . ho desid forlán . . . tanicc iarum gratia when [sin] had been superabundantly established . . . then came `gratia', 3a7 . ho imrordai nech . . . dolbthai [= dolbaith-i] dano iarum, PCr. 64a1 ( Thes. ii 229.32 ). o desid ógi na cretmi la firu Herend and ┐ o ro pridcastar Patraic soscela dóib . . . conid íarum ro chreti Loegaire, LU 9735. o ro glé a imrádud . . . dolluid, FB 8 . o ro taisfeóin Bricriu in fled . . . forócrad do B., ib. 13 . is mor for fācsam do maith | o ro chrādsam ar n-ardflaith, SR 1486 . o doriachtsat . . . ro chelebairset a tratha, PH 579. o atchuala in ríg na gaire . . . ro iarfacht, 395 . otrubairt in demun sin, boí ina thost iarum, 1980 . o dubairt A. sin, ra laigastair . . . , TTebe 1215 . ó ro aitcheatar ainm Colmáin . . . ternatar slán, BColm. 94.12 .

Folld. by perfective pres.: o doréccu Cuirrech cain . . . dobeir mac[h]dath when I gaze upon the fair Curragh, Hail Brigit § 3 ( LL 49b15 ). is ann is lestar spirto noib in duini, o dondigsed na sualchi tar esse na ndualche when virtues come to him instead of vices, ZCP iii 454.26 (perf.-pres. subj. = dodigthet, R). In PH 928 : o ro dígset for a sét, the vb. is prob. to be regarded as a spurious perfect.

(c) the action of the ó-clause is simultaneous with that of the main clause, when, as soon as, often while ; folld. by pres., past and fut. tenses. In Mid.Ir. the rel. form of 3 s. pres. and fut. is commonly used in this sense. With pres.: ticc mo tráth ó ticc an samh when summer comes, ZCP viii 222 z . otchí Isu in ṅduine ic comallnad a thimna . . . faídid chuice na suailche, PH 4606. o thecait na sualchi . . . dochumm in duine, fuaslaicit a chorp ┐ a anmain, 4615 . o dfhéchas [leg. déchas] in fíren brechtrad na sualach . . . togaid in sualaig, 7101 . o chaithes in choland in mbiad, is sásad . . . di he, 4799 . With subj. pres.: cuin is tualaing coisc alanali? O chanasca [cutnasca v.l.] fadesin when is he able to control another? When he can control himself, ZCP iii 451.26 .

With fut., answering to a Lat. fut. perf., Eng. pres. or perf.; common in Laws Comm. beirid cach dibad . . . o bias in cuic raith cetach acu ┐ o bus ac oen flaith beit `when they have the five stocks of a hundred head of cattle and are under one chief', Laws iv 42 y = Stud. in E. Ir. Law 149.5 . forrgid as anim dō o rachas as a daghfēr fein (the calf) is called `f.' when it leaves its own good grass, 110.29 (t.). o roinnfes in tir, nochan egin do . . . when he has divided, 8.4 . o fasbus [= fásfas] fogail when damage arises, 8.12 . donither trocaire ris o rosia lan in marbhta `when (the fine) reaches the full amount for kill- ing', 250.2 . is e dobēra ola a throcaire do cách . . . o ragus fen artús fo baithis, PH 3813.

With past, gen. to express an action (state) during which something occurred: o mbatar na fir isin uamaid, . . . tanic in t-imper, PH 1002. o mbatar icon cosnum sin, ro pritchastar P. dóib, 1719 . Cf. 5035 . o rabadar som amlaid sin . . . adchualadar, TTebe 2938 .

II As causal conj., as, since, inasmuch as (not in Glosses); esp. common with cop.
