(ad-tá) subst. vb. is . The distinction betw. subst. vb. and copula is in the first place syntactical, and cases are found where there is no distinction of form. Cf. the type, common in ACC: boe sab he was a leader, ACC 26 . See further below, and the discussion by Bergin, Ériu xii 208 - 211 (cia taísiu, cia bé, etc.), who refers to cases like: is uera pictura ro bai sin, Thes. ii 6.32 as emphatic. See also Ériu xvi 46 , GOI 475 . For nimtha laám, Wb. 12a21 , nímptha fírion, 8d24 (copula ?) see GOI 487 . Note also the form of the pron. in (later): matait tall iat, Laws iv 86.8 Comm. , atá ar conair é, ACL iii 216.z . bí N. eices cecinit, RC xvii 175.14 is perh. a mistake. In follg. use of subst. vb. perh. due to infl. of Latin: mar nobéind athair doib = pater eram pauperum, PH 6107 . ata in innsci ordugud etc. = oratio est. . ., Auraic. 591 .

Apart from the ordinary indic. pres. all forms of subst. vb. are from a root beginning with b-. In indic. pres. the stem tá (in absol. position attá) is used in non-rel. sentences without conj. particle, after conj. particles with inf. pron. dat. and when the conj. particle consists of a preposition and rel. (s)a n-. Absolute inflexion of tá- is found in oldaas, indaas, etc. than (is), in meaning is angry, and with follg. suff. pron. The uninflected form fil (with accus.) is used after conj. particles where no dat. inf. pron. is present, in leniting rel. clauses and often in answers to questions containing subst. vb., and in archaic texts in absol. position in meaning there is . For fuller details see GOI 476 - 483 and exx. below. See also Pedersen Vgl. Gr. ii 419 ff. , Strachan, Phil. Soc. Trans. 1899, 1 - 82 , Ó Máille, Ériu vi 1 ff. , Études Celt. xxxiv 143-44 . Forms of gaibid, do-coissin, díchsnigidir and 1 ad-cumaing also have the force of the subst. vb. in certain uses, see separate entries.

Note further that attá is usual after hóre (see Wb. 19a19 , 22d14 and compare GOI § 781 ) and occurs later after amal ( LU 7072 , Laws iii 90.18 ). Fil is somet. found in sense there is in mid. Ir.: fail crois d'ór in cach dorus, SR 361 . TBC-I¹ 2561 . Note also: fil derg it is red, Marco P. 173 .

The use of accus. after fil continues into the classical period, see IGT Introd. § 129 , Bard. Synt. Tr. 92 - 93 . A few exx. of forms other than fil with accus. occur: ni raibi deilb, TTr.² 1664 , ní raibi . . . mhnái, 370 , ní bhiadh mnaoi, Ó Bruad. ii 252.z (with assonance). Note also with inf. pron. rosṁbai inna tass, SR 5107 . ? nim tha maith . . . do chath fri firu, LU 3343 ( SCC 13 ). From the mid. Ir. period on fil takes personal endings except in 3 s., and occurs occasionally as an independent verb: faeilfit (fut. 3 pl. absol.), Caithr. Thoirdh. 120.26 . In rel. function attá is found side by side with fil from an early period: is heiside attá hi S., Trip.² 534 , a lucht atá istig, RC vii 298.131 , the form fil finally disappearing in this use.

In mid. Ir. fil occurs for earlier -tá with dat. inf. pron.: nichar fail tlacht, SR 1560 , ni-s-fil biad, PH 1310 . Also in rel. clause after prep.: bale hi fail, LU 7516 , fors fil, Imr. Brain 43 (see also Strachan, Stories fr. Táin 3rd ed. p. 1 note).

The consuet. pres. 1 s. conj. -bíu has in classical Ir. the force of a future: biad ní biú, IGT Verbs § 7 , see also TBC-LL¹ 882 , Acall. 6179 , Duan. F. i 43.4 .

The meanings of do-gní fall under two main heads, does (I) , and makes (II) . As both these senses are often implicit in the Irish, the classification given below is to some extent artificial. Examples in which the notion of activity seems predominant are referred to I, those in which that of formation is uppermost to II; but often only the context can decide to which head an instance belongs, e.g. dogní comairle takes counsel (I) , or forms a plan (II) ; dogní dliged administers justice (I) or makes (promulgates) a law (II) .

I

(a) does , implying action in the widest sense: a ndugniat ar magistir, is ferr dún a dénum, Wb. 14b17 . a nāt denat ar magistir, ni dignem-ni, 15d6 . cach óin dodgéna samlaid whosoever shall do thus, Thes. ii 235 . níb ar adbchlos do dóinib, ba ar Dia gacha ndene let all thou doest be (done) for God, Ériu ii 172 .

(b) Used to avoid repetition of another vb., like Eng. do (see Celtica i 318 ): — báidhter ón, ar Mac an D. — Ni dingnum itir, ol M., Imr. Brain i 64 . — imrem fithchill. — Ni dernus riam, ar C., Ériu v 30 . do slechtadar . . . damsa ┐ doghenaid duitsi mar sin, CF 215 . dia hingreim doridhisi amail dorighni fecht n-aill, BS 122 . rocomroic Ioib riasi . . . amal danid re hIunaind, TTebe 782 . sechain toil na drúisi amail dodhenta tiagarna fuar as you would (shun) an unfeeling master, Ériu v 138 . smachtaigh do ben amail dodhenta do mac, 114 . damad maith lat a losccadh, dogéntae, Moling 42 .

adv Mid. Ir. immorro. Rarely written in full in MSS., generally in contracted forms im, imr. Spellings: imurgu, Wb. 33a5 . immurgu, Ml. 34a16 . immurgo, Mon. Tall. 148.11 . imargu, 129.10 . immurco, 138.21 , 155.31 . immargu, Ériu vii 162.27 . imarcco, D IV 2 40rb39 . immoro, LL 238a40 . ummoro, IT iii 504.587 ( LL 257b13 ). immurro, IT iii 76.15 . imuro, 37 n. 21 . imorú, Hib.

Immurgu (? imm-ro-gáu, GOI § 907 ) never occurs at the beginning of a sentence and was stressed on the second syllable as its use in poetry shows: amorra ┐ cheana ┐ idir ... focail nach berar ara cheill iad ┐ as c. comardadh riu adhon ... ni bia mo mheithealsa amorra | gan leith-shearsa leanna, C I 3, 45b1 . aniú iomorra gan mearbhaill, Content. xxii 10.

Used as conj. and adv. with adversative force or emphasizing the previous word or phrace, however, moreover, well, then, now, indeed, in truth, but , etc. :

I With adversative force serves to contradict or modify a previous statement or something implied in it, or to express contrast with what has just been said = however (autem) : ní thucci mo menme immurgu gl. nam si orem lingua spiritus meus orat mens autem mea sine fructu est, Wb. 12d11 . ithésidi immurgu beta hícthi `it is they, however, (and not the aforementioned) who shall be saved,' 3d29 . is beo ind anim tri sodin is marb in corp immurgu trisna senpecthu, 4a6 . dosnicfa cobir cid mall bith maith immurgu intain dondiccfa, 5c5 . rubu fersom muintere ... nirbu choimdiu imurgu `he had been a man of (the) household ... he had not been a lord however,' 33a5 . ní boi immurgu hi cridiu gl. humanitatem quidem uerbis, Ml. 34a16 . ní ar indí asndarobartis immurgu inna briathra hisin, 31b22 . ba cunda[il] sem immurgu `he was sage however,' Thes. ii 291.6 . denúas dotiagar hisatech ... sis iarsuidiu ... dotiagar ass immurgu `from above is the coming into the house ... beneath, afterwards, is the coming out, however,' Thes. ii 292.20 ( Ml.

Forms: nech, nacha, naich, na, nach, nacha, nacha, nach, nach mór

indef. pron. adj., really a proclitic form of nech used before a noun (or adj. used substantivally) and before 3 s. and pl. gen. pron. 1 aí, 4 áe. In sing. uninflected, except in g s f. nacha (g s m. naich occurs once in Glosses: naich baill, Sg. 5a5 ; cf. Fél. Prol. 136 ), inflexion in other cases being indicated by its effect on a follg. vowel.

In nom. and acc. sing. neut. O.Ir. uses the form na, geminating a follg. consonant ( nach gl. quod, Ml. 101a5 , the neut. being here a Latin word, is an emended reading); early in Mid.Ir. na gives way to nach.

Any, whatever, some . . . or other (corresponding to Lat. quilibet, quivis, quispiam), occas. verging on the sense every ; freq. used after a negative (= Lat. ullus), in Mid.Ir. generally so.

In affirm. sent.: nach aile, gl. alius quispiam, Ml. 78b17 . bit [leg. bid] failid nach oín adidtrefea whoever shall so dwell, 107a15 . nach gním dungenam-ni (gl. omnia studia nostra), 111d3 . huan duni fesin no hua nach ailiu, 49b8 . ho pecthib nach aili, gl. alienis maculis, 15b10 . imfolang nach gnima, 80d2 . tre thesbaid nach baill dind deilb, Sg. 5a5 . dochum nacha rainne aile to some other part, 188a12 . nach itge no guidiu any prayer that I pray, Fél.

In meaning, corresponds in general to Lat. a, ab or to the ablative case, in Glosses used to represent either.

Cf. also Hib. Min. 13.438 : aranni arbar bith inn aesa dilmain on bethaid shuthain = eo quod scilicet vitâ aeternâ fruitur; `because the lawful people enjoy life everlasting', Meyer, but the construction is not clear.
