Like -sn-, -s-, -d-, -das- also in time lost its force, as the frequent addition of the noun and independent pronoun shows. It has still some meaning in such phrases as : port indasfacca Meidb, TBC-LL¹ 1458 ; tabair dam béos conusfortachtaige da cechoen, PH 1423 ; conusfortachtaige dona trógaib, ib. 4158 —where the use of the pronoun is proleptical; but finally it lost all significance, and was in connection with co n- and dia n- felt as an inherent part of the conjunction : fuaratar folliuchta beca isin úir...conus-fetatar co mbad hé Míchel roḟoillsig arde a ḟrecnarcusa and PH 6331 —Cf. -da-, -dan-.

i, i.e. dĕggṁaing, adj. A -ng: decming, Wb. 14 b 4 . 17 c 7 . 21 a 13 . degming, 13 d 20 .— decmaing, LL 125 b 1 f.b. 251 a 30 . 277 a 36 . Ériu iv 108. 19 LL. Cog. 122. 10 (14th-century MS). O'Dav. 184 , 655 . TBFr. 150. 24 . deacmaing, Fél. Ep. 172 v.l. and late lexicographers (O'Cl., Lhuyd, P. O'C. , &c.). B -gg. Though not found in the Glosses, decmaic, as proved by Fél. Ep. 172 , existed as early as the late 8th century (cf. Oir. cumac). As the consonant-groups prevent the syncope of the second syllable, -gg has arisen by analogy. decmaic: Fél. Ep. 172 (= O'Dav. 184 , 655 . H 3.18, 541 ). O'Dav. 688 (old quotation). Laws iv 382. 3 f.b. (main text); v 276. 1 Comm. AFM A.D. 1516 . O'Mulc. 331 . decmuic, Fél. l.c. (v.l.). d s.

All forms given above, where not otherwise marked, are in the n s.—COMP. decmuccu, decmaicci, BDD § 87 .

Latest instances noted: LL 34 b 1 f.b. , poem ascribed to Cuan Hua Lothcháin (†1024), and Cog. 122. 10 (11th-century composition). The word went out of use during the 11th century, and words like deccair, doccair, &c., took its place. Its occurrence in the FM is of no consequence.

ORIGIN: From †di-ecmaing, i.e. privative di- + ecmang, vn. of 1 ad-cumaing `it happens, takes place,' the o-stem passing into an i-stem in composition, cf. deccair, 1 deithbir, deolaid, díáirim, Díarmait, and especially the synonymous díing.

SENSES: A Definitions given by Ir. lexicographers:

(a) decmaic .i. ingnad ut est dobur cach decmuic .i. is dorcha gach ní is ingnad leis féin, O'Dav. 688 . deacmaing .i. iongnadh, O'Cl., Lhuyd. a wonder or surprise P. O'C. decmaic .i. is ingnadh nó is égen, gl. ad, AFM v 1336. 17 (O'Curry Transcr.).

(b) ding .i. decmaic, O'Mulc. 331 (YBL). H 3.18, 68 . As O'Mulc.'s Glossary is to a great extent based on Old- and early Mid.-Ir. vocabularies, the occurrence of d. in it is not against the statement made above as to the time when d.¤ became obsolete.

(c) decmaic .i. doilig, docamlach: dobur cach decmuic... is amail ní dorcha (i.e. dobur) gach ní is doilig, O'Dav. 688 . deacmaic .i. docaṁlach nó doilidh, O'Cl. Ir. MSS. Ser. ii 292 . O'Don. Suppl. (O'Rody).

(d) decmaic .i. síst a while, opp. dogrés, O'Dav. 655 , ib. 184 . Opp. dognáth, H 3.18, 541 (O'Curry's Transcr.).
