Forms: gretha, grethae, gretha, grithu

n u, m. g s. gretha. n p. grethae, Fél. Jan. 25 . gretha, SR 8062 . a p. grithu, LL 275a19 . By Pedersen Vgl. Gr. (i 367) connected with W. gryd. Generally translated shout, outcry, etc., and so explained by O'Cl. : greath .i. gáir; co lion gretha .i. co n-iomat ngaire, Leb. Gab.(i) i 20 , followed by Stowe Gl. 421 : grith .i. gaire. The word, however, is often confused with crith trembling (g s. cretha), the interchange of c and g being not uncommon, and the older exx. in Mid. Ir. point to a meaning somewhat similar:

(a) shaking, quivering; shudder, vibration; collapse , which may be the sense in the foll. exx.: condusrala i ng.¤ ┐ uaman ┐ grindell do mullach in tighe, Anecd. ii 61.4 ; ib. 54.2 . foceird g.¤ shakes, vibrates, collapses (?): fochartatar g.¤ (focerd airmgrith v.l.) immi, co mbátar for lár in tige, BDD 109 . rolasat g.¤ co mbátar for lár in tige (of weapons loosened from their racks by a concussion), 55 = rolaiset armgrith ┐ torcratar for lar, Eg. = BDD² 499 (`they clattered ?,' Knott, vocab. s.v. fo-ceird). Mairt hi Crinda ... hi foichret sluaig hErend g.¤ in which the hosts of Ireland shall fall (or be shaken, panic-struck ?), ZCP xiii 376.23 . ?ro comgabsat uili g.¤ ina menmannaibh conid ic taircetal ār ndermair ... robadar na hairdi (they were perturbed or panic-stricken ?), CCath. 1068 . Cf. further: rala Temair tri crithu di Tara shuddered thrice (?), Anecd. ii 7.19 (leg. grithu, Ed., but the MS. reading may be correct). Also armgrith which in older exx. seems to mean panic (also shouting and clashing of arms) ( Ériu xliii 70 ): collotar i n-a. bha rennaib a sleg ┐ a faebor, TBC-LL¹ 5004 . nuall-grith: n. na roth ┐ culgaire in charpait, TBC-LL¹ 3311 (where the word seems to express the vibration of the wheels and the noise produced), and in other compds. (see below).

Hence (b) agitation, frenzy, fit, spasm: cumgéba a g.¤ glórglonnach | co roa niulu nime (of the sea) it will rise in wild and clamorous tumult (?), SR 8107 . cūi cen cheol, garg a ṅgretha outbursts, 8062 . inn uair ras-geib a g.¤ slegi when its fury-fit seizes the spear (?), MU² 727 ( LL 267b14 ). iss ē tria gaile gretha | beb Laidcenn mac ṁBairceda, ZCP viii 118 § 23 . Possibly also in: re hollg.¤ a nechraidi, MR 184.6 . roba ghraineamhail g.¤ na ngalghad risna harmaibh, Ériu viii 48.14 (both late texts).

(c) Passing into sense of seizure, attack: ? co rodṁbroe rí betha bailcc, | rodclái tria gretha (sic leg.) comthailc, SR 5470 ( Rawl. 53a21 ). diar' hícc fer fo thedmaib ... do grethaib dremnaib demna, 7620 . ni ba dānu fri grithu ni ba [á]thiu fri cure in laech hé, LL 275a19 (rhet.). atá Temhair gan a túar, | atá fo gredhaibh a gael `a blight is upon his kindred' (perh. outcries, lamentations), ACL iii 304 § 6 (see Meyer, Ancient Irish Poetry, 75 ).

(d) Fig. of that which causes fear or panic, the power of inspiring dread (cf. similar use of 1 gráin): rosfuc sech dóene ... in talman ar ... g.¤ ┐ grain, LL 238a15 . ba mór a gráin ┐ a g.¤ , Metr. Dinds. iv 20.4 .

(e) In later texts the meaning seems to be that given by O'Cl. , shout (din, uproar): cuirit gretha im nithgalaibh, TBC-LL¹ 5511 St. glorgrith na habond, 3906 St. Possibly also in foll. earlier exx. where sense is in some cases obscure and in others might be referred to a previous head: co delmaim a ṅgrethae (sic leg., Stokes Gloss.), Fél. Prol. 154 . líth fris cuirter grethae a festival (whereon) shouts are sent forth,' ib. Jan. 25 (cf. 4 grith below). Féil Phóil ocus Phetair | co n-aidbli a ngretha `with vastness of crying unto them' (?), ib. June 29 . deilm in gaeth, granni in g.¤ , TFerbe 100 . ba leor do brón in betha | a ṅglór is a ṅgarbgretha, Metr. Dinds. iii 256.14 . ni chlunim gáir nó gretha, RC xiv 416.y . trí gretha tige degláich: grith fodla, g.¤ suide, g.¤ coméirge `three shouts' (?), Triads 99 (cf. 4 grith below). ní gúach in g.¤ (chev.), Metr. Dinds. iii 238.46 . rancatar scela co Foraind | la mét ṅgretha `with great éclat' (of dread import ?), LL 133b40 ( Todd Nenn. 228.58 ). im gním ṅgretha `on a noisy adventure' (fear-rousing ?), Arch. Hib. ii 73 § 46 ( LL 184a38 ). ? acht mina riset mucca do grit leat, IT ii2 101.14 ( BB 496a25 ). sinne úaidhe ┐ chuige | mar ba grith áil aon-mhuice `as it were the brood of a sow,' Duan. F. i 9.12 (where ed. reads gritháil). See grithugud.

Compds. ¤ecail, Metr. Dinds. iv 320.6 (that never shook for fear ?) ¤gair fear-inspiring shout (din, clamour ?), CCath. 4634 . RC xiv 46.3 . ZCP xiii 234.12 . ¤nia, MR 170.

Forms: neich, neuch, nech, nnech, neoch, neoch, neoch

indef. pron. m. (= W. neb). g s. neich. d s. neuch (O.Ir.), neoch; in Mid.Ir. occas. nech; no plural. For neut. forms see 1 ní.

Freq. folld. by limiting rel. clause in which in strict grammatical construction the subj. mood is used: nech bed chare dō any one that was a friend to him, Ml. 29c16 . arcessi do neuch bes meldach les he pities whomsoever he pleases, Wb. 4c19 . in fagum acaib nech dig do midem bar in slúag? any one who will go to reconnoitre, CRR 25. cebe nech doneth écnach Crist whoever should blaspheme, PH 478. ar lebráin nos-túirfem | fri nech fora n-íarair for any one inquiring for them, Fél. Prol. 290 (ellipt. sent. = for nech bes fora n-í.). (with indic.) in fail d'Ultaib nech is ḟerr andá? any one better than he, TBC-LL¹ 126.

Esp. common after a neg., corresponding to Lat. quisquam: nech, gl. quemquam, Ml. 49a13 . nech, gl. nemo, ZCP viii 174.9 (Fulda Glosses). neich, gl. nullius, Ml. 30a6 . nech huainn cen fochaid, 93c19 (ellipt.). ní tabarthi dímess do neoch for nach n-énirt contempt is not to be shown by any one, Wb. 6c19 . nach fail do Ultaib nech dobera a agid ḟormsa, CRR 44. arim cech sluaig . . . ni fail nech rodasfessed, SR 561. asbeirtis ni neich in peccad that sin is no one's, Wb. 4c23 . nīm huain fri acallaim neich, SR 1185. aisneis . . . ní thic do neoch no one is able to declare, FA 9. ní thairce tarba do nech, PH 8385. gin faircsi neich do neoch dia denumh `no one seeing any one doing it', Marco P. 52.

Tall. § 63. mani beth do bochta neich conā raib aicce almsa unless a man's poverty is so great, PH 4973.

Gl. 378. The sense any one is expressed in Mod.Ir. by the prefix aon- (aoin-, én-): gan aon-neach do Thuaith Dé Danann, Keat. Poems 261.

In appos. to a preceding noun: ac so uan Dé nech tócbus pectha in domain, PH 3795 (here nech has become a virtual rel. pron.).
