I Independent (accented) forms:

1 nom. s. mé; with emphatic suffix messe, meisse, mese (Glosses), in Mid.Ir. also mis(s)e, the common later form. pl. sni (? only found as emphasizing particle , Wb. 15c20 ), ni (? see Wb. 19d8 quoted below).

(is) nini , Wb. 33a7 , Ml. 43d5 (níni). is ninni , 93d3 , 133d3 . Mid.Ir. sinne, sinn (sind).

In Mid. and Early Mod. Ir. sometimes with lenited -m- when used as object of verb or with copula: do bhrosnaidh mhé, Carswell² 9.247 . cionnas do mealladh mhé?, Desid. 800 . da fechair mhe ag dul um deisi 'going into mine armour', Fier. 27 . doberim mhe fein cen comaithes duid ┐ dena do bail fein dim, ZCP vi 49.2 . ní fer gualann rígh mhe ..., acht fer fiadhnaisi rígh 'I am not a man to be beside the king; I am one to be before a king', Acall. 2362 . inbaid bhad chrechtach . . . mhe, TBC-LL¹ 6061 . tug a éag i gcōmhnaidhe | mhé gan ionnramh chóig gcéadfadh, Measgra D. 62.28 . mances duitsi mhé, RC xiv 48 § 56 . ni tualuing mhé beith ica bhfegadh, Caithr. CC 21.1 .

(a) used as subj. with 3 s. cop. followed by a rel. clause (if the subj. of both clauses is the same, the vb. of the latter is also 3 s.):

as mmé m'oínur aridrochell (gl. ego et non alius), Sg. 202a7 . is mé as apstal geinte , Wb. 5b17 . amal bid me féin no theised, 32a17 . ni mé as beo (= non ego), 19a18 . is mé dochóid darsin smacht, SR 1529. is mé ro bæglaiged, SCC 44. is messe ro phroidech doib, Wb. 10c20 . is mese nad frithchomart nech (gl. qui laeserim neminem), Ml. 47a2 . is mése . . . coiblethar céim, FB 23. is messi ém dorat, etc., IT i 127.31 (LU) = is misiu, Eg. messe ragas for astur, SCC 44. ní me no ragad i n-agid Conculaind, TBC-LL¹ 1580. pl. snisni ata sonortu (gl. nos firmiores), Wb. 6c22 . is snisni (gl. nos . . . qui), Ml. 93c11 ; (gl. nos . . . quos) 32a20 , cf. 102b15 , 127c2 . is níni foralaig, gl. nos quos [straverat], 43d5 . is sinn ro sáraig in flaith it is we who offended, SR 1521. ni sinn ro gab do maithius, 1729 . sinde ro marb hé it was we who slew him, Fél. 44.5 .

(b) in Mid.Ir. also as subj. (virtual or grammatical) of 3 s. cop. when the pred. is a subst. or adj. (replacing the O.Ir. personal forms of the cop.); is x mé = O.Ir. am x. The follg. exx. from Glosses anticipate this construction: mé féin són that is (means) myself, Ml. 109d3 (gl. sancta mea, expld. as standing for the speaker himself); maic ni dosom we are sons of His, Wb. 19d8 . is mé a cnú chridi I am their hearts' core, FB 24. in tan ba gilla bec mi, LL 32075 (TTr.) . dāig is mi . . . ársid imdegla Ulad, TBC-LL¹ 1667 (= osamé, H. 2.17). inbaid bhad chrechtach . . . mhe when I was wounded, 6061 . is oilithri cid olc me though bad I am a pilgrim, ACL iii 243 § 31. is mesi Ísu, PH 3732. misse Marcellinus I am M., 612 . Cristaige misse I am a Christian, 633 . tussu Dia, meise duine, 5248 . pl. bid calma . . . sinni , TBC-LL¹ 3279 (= sinne, TBC-I¹ 2469 ). in tráth ata scítha iat, cid dúnni na bad scítha sind? why should we not be weary? 3623 . sinde Petar ┐ Pol, PH 414. bid subach sind, ACL iii 234 § 8.

(c) in absol. construction standing outside a sent. to emphasize a verb of first pers. contained in it, often preceded by os (later is, ocus, see Thurneysen, ZCP 16.275 ) or cid; or in an ellipt. sent. in connexion with an adv., etc., esp. in contrast to a pron. of second or third pers. or a subst. (in these cases the emphatic form is usual):

sinde imorro, ni berum breith fortsu, PH 607. os me chene am faelid I too am joyous, Thes. ii 293.25 ( SP ii 6 ). os me (gl. ipse), Wb. 11a14 ; Ml. 21a1 . is me crechtach I being wounded, TBC-LL¹ 2380. ro boi sochaide fom mámus ┐ me oc fognam, PH 1140. dobertis cech n-olc . . . form os mese oc taircitul cech maith doibsom, Ml. 54c30 . osní credentes in Christo (gl. ipsi), Wb. 19a15 .

(d) in Mid. and later Ir. used as subj. with passive vb., replacing the earlier infixed pron.

2 gen. s. muí (later sometimes maoi); (emph.) muí-s(s)e. pl. (du.) nathar, nár (by Pedersen, Pedersen Vgl. Gr. ii §§ 407 , 480 , 482 , analysed as n-athar, n-ár). For atonic forms used as poss. adj., see 1 mo and 5 ar.

mui (gl. mei), Sg. 209a7 . 200b10 . muisse (gl. meam), Wb. 1b3 . marb cechtar nathar dialailiu each of us twain is dead to the other, 20c26 . cechtar nathar fria saindán, Thes. ii 293. 14 ( SP ii 1 ). maith la cechtar nár a dán, 294.2 . cechtar náthar, LU 5229 ( TBC-I¹ 752 ), cf. Fianaig. 12 § 22. nechtar nátharni, LU 1433 ( MU 46.9 ).

Used as indecl. subst.: is and nad bí muí na taí there is neither `mine' nor `thine', LU 10848 ( IT i 132 ). inna mmui-sea (gl. mea taken as neut. pl.), Wb. 18d13 . Cf. muin mai .i. os leam mo shealbh, O'Cl.

In oldest lit. (poetry and rhetorical prose) muí is used to strengthen the atonic possessive, standing before it or after the follg. subst. (see ZCP xii 439 ): tacud iar mār muī mo chelmuine (.i. iar mórthacad regat, is í mo chélmaine dam), Lib. Hymn. i 184 = iar mar moi (.i. mei), Rawl. 106b22 . rect moi mo Christ, ib. (= moe, Rawl.). moai [leg. maoi?] mo rosc (.i. rop limm mo radarc), ZCP iii 224 § 10 (Amra Senáin). moe mó dia, LU 3081 = SG 236. saeru mo gene maoi, O'Dav. 1034. tí mo macain mui `the cloak of a child of mine', 1555 . muí mo chain cetmuinter, Anecd. iii 28.8 (moi v.l.). mui mo macc mui mo ingen, ib. 18 .

3 acc. (obj. of vb.): in O.Ir. and early Mid.Ir. the infixed pron. is used to express the obj.; the use of the independent forms (perhaps confined at first to the emphatic forms) becomes common later, esp. with imperative, and in course of time displaces the infixed pron., see Strachan, Ériu i 176 f .

(a) ni aichne nech acht missi fodessin he recognizes no one but me, TBC-LL¹ 1005. atat tri coecait . . . acum . . . noco treicfitis messe, SCC 44. dochluinet mé, PH 2714. creid mé ┐ dam ┐ indam!, 7311 . dorónsabar bar triur mesi cúnntabartach the three of you have made me doubtful, 1805 . freagair ar grad Muire me!, ACL iii 241 § 3. na ro dilsigea sinn do Lucifer, LB 112a30 ( MacCarthy 62.19 ) = nachar-ṅdilsi Dia, SR 1551. co ra-shaera sind, PH 764. gab chucat sind!, 184 . saer sinne! 2884 . (reflex.) dobermais sínn fein i ndilsi, 7233 .

Supplementing infixed pron.: is e rom-cuir cum comruic me, ZCP vi 101.25 . co ron-timorcmis sind fodein, PH 4938.

(b) in late Mid.Ir. the form ind comes into use as acc. pl. and continues in Mod.Ir. till recent times: ni ro lecea índ i ndérchoined, PH 7961 (only instance). beandaig ind!, ACL iii 241 § 1. nach sluic in lar uili ind, 242 § 9. ná fuirigh inn in ngioll grása, Dán Dé xii 10. na léig inn a ccathughadh achd saor inn o olc, Matthew vi 13. Rarely used as nom., with cop.: mec oenathar ┐ oenmathar ind , LB 113b62 . ma dubach ind o'n aithrigi, ACL iii 234 § 8. da mbeith decelt tarainne | is ind ar cæ do teghluigh, ZCP ix 167.3 ( = os sinn).

II Infixed forms: in O.Ir. and earlier Mid.Ir. used with vb. to express the acc. (occas. also dat., also reflex. and reciprocal relations), see Thurn. Hdb. 244. In later Mid.Ir. the infixed form gradually falls into disuse, giving way to the independent, see Ó Catháin, ZCP xix 1.

(a) O.Ir. forms:

(a) after the prefixes no-, ro-, do-, di-, fo-, ar-, imm-, and the negations ní, nách-: s. -m(m)-, leniting follg. consonant. pl. -n(n)-; occas. with vowel inserted between prefix and pron. (esp. after nách), for examples see -n-

(b) in rel. constr. and after prefixes ad-, aith-, con-, ess-, etar-, for-, frith-, in-: s. -dom(m)-, -dam(m)-. pl. -don(n-), -dan(n)-. The prefixes ad- (aith-, ess-, in-), con-, frith-, com- bined with the pron. give the forms atom- (-am-), cotam-, fritom-, pl. atan(n)-, coton-.

For full treatment of inf. pron. in Glosses see Sommer, ZCP i 181 - 7 .

(b) in O.Ir. the inf. pron. is sometimes used idiomatically as dat. with 3 s. subst. vb., apparently unstressed, in impers. constr. folld. by adj. or subst., as equivalent for a copula-clause: nim-tha laám I am not a hand, Wb. 12a21 . nímptha fírion I am not righteous, 8d24 . nimtha maith do chath I am no good for fighting, SCC 13. Also with follg. noun subject ním-thá I have not (non est mihi): nimthá-sa cumac dóib I am not able for them, LU 1515 ( MU 52.10 ). Cf. SR 3761 quoted under (c). But ním fil I am not: ci nín fil lib although we are not with you, Wb. 16b9 , where the pronoun is accusative.

See attá and 1 is.

(c) in Mid.Ir. the poss. 5 ar is often used instead of -n- in pl.: at-ar-fail cen duine trén we are without a strong man, SR 3761. ních-ar-fail tlacht no dagbíad we have neither raiment nor food, 1560 (for -ch cf. 2088 ). cid nach-ar-cobrai? why dost thou not help us? 3759 . is trúag aní narta [ = no-ar-ta] de what comes to us therefrom (i.e. our consequent plight), TBC-LL¹ 4150. in dóig in-ar-tísed Conchobar? is it likely that C. would have come to us? 815 , cf. 834 . rar-cluin he has heard us, 3342 . rar-marnestar, 3688 . issed rar-metair-ne, CRR 5. co n-or-mbaiter so that we are drowned, RC ix 461. ailim trocaire ṅDe co n-or-bera uili . . . isin flaith, YBL 166b34 . nach-ar-leic i n-amus!, PH 7961. aprisci in adbhuir dian-ar-forcoimnacair whereof we have been created, Ériu ii 122 § 62. fa breith an Coimghe ror-cum, Rel. Celt. ii 280.16 . For: ar = 1 pl. pres. cop., see 1 is.

III Suffixed forms with vb.: s. -m(m), -um(m), -am(m); pl. -un(n).

(a) with 3 s. cop. in dat. relation: issum ecen precept it is necessary for me to teach, Wb. 10d24 . isim écen-sa techt, LU 4694 ( TBC-LL¹ 221 ). ním dil (.i. ni hinmain lem), Hy. ii 44. ni fuigeba-su curaid . . . bádam [ = bad-am] fiu-sa thou wilt not find a champion who would be worth me, SCC 42. In Mid.Ir. the suffix comes to be regarded as a personal inflection of the cop., hence the forms isam, bam, badam; see 1 is.

(b) with 3 s. of subst. vb. in dat. and of other vbs. in acc. relation, in pres. ind. and pret. and pres. subj.: tathum dual do bruc I have cause for grief, LL 147a23 = PRIA iii 548 § 20. tathum ó Día praind, Anecd. i 64.6 . tathum .i. ata agam, O'Dav. 1603. sastum ( = sásaid-um), Ériu ii 63 § 1. ainsium Crist may Christ protect me, Hy. vi 14. ní rubí-m-sea do gæ has not wounded me, SCC 41. táthunn ní as nessa, Fél. 217. taithiunn . . . ni fristarddam ar n-áthius we have something to which to apply our acuteness, Thes. ii 293.19 ( SP ii 3 ). ainsiund .i. ro ainge sind may he protect us, 352.33 ( Hy. vi 14 Comm. ).

Used in prayer-formulas, often with a spurious s-subj. with force of optative: moightiumh [ = mogaid- or mogad-um?] . . . slánuightium, ZCP vi 258.10 . snaidhsium saorsam carsam, ib. 3 . snaidhsim Dia, x 347.4 . molsum gach maith . . . biadsum . . . griansum grian . . . saorsum gach dūn . . . mārsim Dia . . . caomsum Coimdi, ib. 5 - 7 .

IV Suffixed form with prep., s. -m(m), pl. -n(n); see under the several prepositions.

V Emphasizing particle, s. -sa, -so, later occas. -su; (after palatal cons. or vowels e, i) -se, later also -sea. pl. -ni, later -ne; laimir-sni (gl. audemus), Wb. 15c20 (a prima manu), is an archaic form.

Added to (a) independent form of pron., mes(s)e, snisni, etc., see I above.

(b) subst. preceded by poss. adj.: im labrad-sa, Wb. 14c23 . mo fochidi-se, 25a10 . dum popul-sa, Ml. 77a13 . mo popuil-se, ib. 12 . mo dam-sa, CRR 4. mo throit-se, 5 . form dreich-sea, SCC 40. mo chomarli-sea, FB 8. dom'ic-sa, IT i 125.28 (LU). imm dáil-si, 126.2 . ar n-inmedónach-ni, Ml. 67d14 . ar mbreth-ni, FB 62. ar cuit-ni, CRR 17. fo daig ar n-ícca-ne, PH 176.

Forms: na, nád, an(n)á, an(n)a, arná, arna, con(n)á, cona

conj. introducing subord. neg. clause; in O.Ir. generally na, often alternating with nád (nad); folld. by ro, often nar (nár). When an inf. pron. follows, 4 nach is used. Used in O. and Mid.Ir. in follg. cases:

(a) after the rel. adverbs amal, in tain, uair; after a n- when, while and after ara, co n-, introducing final or consecutive clauses (in these cases generally forming the compds. an(n)á, an(n)a; arná, arna; con(n)á, cona):

amal na fil i ndia (an)isiu as this is not in God, Wb. 14c24 . amal naṅdéni mascul as it does not make a masculine, Sg. 125a6 (= nán?). in tan na hantai for cocertad Medba since ye abide not by M.'s judgement, FB 75. in tan toccraides don choimdid nech ┐ na denand a chomarli, PH 4016. huare narbu derachtae, Ml. 18d18 . uair ná dernsam cuibdi, SR 1853. an[n]ambaid buidig when ye are not content, Ml. 115b10 . annar-bu buidech som, 40d10 . ánamtar tuidchissi (sic leg.) when they were not led, Sg. 6a13 (< a n-na-mbatar).

Similarly after other conjunctions or rel. adverbs: daig na tísat that they may not come, PH 1013. o ro bitis . . . oc denum edpart do ┐ na tabrad freccra doib, 1958 . After in (interrog.), nád is generally used in Glosses; but cf. innabet o nach ainmmdiu whether they are not from any nominal form, Sg. 56b1 . ina raibi Gaedelg resiu ro tobaidhe? did not Gaelic exist? Auraic. 13.

Occas. with inf. pron.: arnam-tomnad námmin duine that he should not suppose me not to be a human being, Wb. 17d23 . hore nán rairigsiur because I had not perceived it (sc. peccad), 3c26 . huare nand chumgat because they cannot do it, Ml. 94b3 . aircein nant ro chomairleic som dunni as long as he did not permit it, 53d9 . cf.

(c) introducing a noun-clause, either expanding an idea implicit in a foregoing noun or pron. or dependent on a vb. of feeling, perceiving, saying: co n-amairis na-nda-tiberad dia doib that God would not give it to them, Ml. 97d10 (with inf. pron.). is éiseo óen-ni moedim-se . . . na rag-sa fessin that I will not go, TBC-LL¹ 1777. ro fail a mor-abba dam-sa sain . . . na fetar, etc. I have good reason for that, (namely) that I know not, CRR 3. o atchuala M. . . . na cindte na berdais breith fair their determination not to pass judgement on him, PH 611. issed is cóir dúin na ragbam accaind na hindmusa, 6123 . is aire sin nara chóir duit-siu tiachtain, TBC-LL¹ 3527 (na rachóir, Wind.). arnamtomnad námmin duine that I were not a human being, Wb. 17d23 (see Pedersen Vgl. Gr. i 118 , ii 223 ). dar lim-sa na fail áth for abaind, CRR 28. ro fhitir na ra bi adbar aile aice, PH 530. Esp. in reported speech: asberad som na mbu tressa dia hirusalem that the God of Jerusalem was not stronger, Ml. 53d6 . atberim frib . . . na híb don chenel fhina-sa that I will not drink, PH 5055. asbert C. nárbu santach fair, FB 90. a[t]bert nár mó a olc dhó-som, TTr.² 73. By extension, after a vb. of asking: ro aitchiset na firu . . . naro indistis [na scéla], PH 3708.

For the copula-form nár in answering a question in the negative, see 3 nád.

(d) rarely introducing a final or consecutive clause (instead of arná, conná): tuargaib leiss . . . é go mbad ra áth a túaid ra beth in coscur ┐ na bad ra áth aníar in order that the victory might be north of the ford and not west of it, TBC-LL¹ 3967. afraig C. . . . na betis áes na fledi cen ól that . . . might not be without drink, FB 27. na tócuir chucut do chairdiu . . . na ro tochuiret-side tusu doridise, PH 6020 , cf. 6870 , 3178 . tuc Dia rath dō narb andsa la cristaigib he oldait geinte so that he was not dearer to Christians than to Gentiles, 310 .

Forms: oldaas

conj. than , after comparatives; prob. an extension of the adverbial use, see 1 ol. Ol is always combined with an absol. form (rel. in 3d pers.) of the subst. vb., which it eclipses. In O.Ir. (a) the subst. vb. after ol generally represents the copula and agrees in number and pers. with a follg. subject, its tense being determined by that of the main sentence; but already within the O.Ir period (b) the form oldaas (ol+3 s. rel.) ` than he (she, it) is ' comes to be regarded as a conj. = ` than ' and may be followed by another vb. in the absol. form. Finally in Mid.Ir. oldaas (oldás) `than' comes to be used without distinction of person, number or tense, though the older inflected forms frequently occur down to the close of the Mid.Ir. period. See Pedersen Vgl. Gr. § 511 Anm. 1. Already in O.Ir, ol- begins to be replaced by in- (in Glosses found only in Ml.), which before the close of the Mid.Ir. period supersedes it.
