Forms: Mael, M(ael), Mæl, Mail, Mail, Mæil, Mael, Maíle, Máel, Maíl, Maíle, Maíl-, Maíle, Máel-, Maele, Maelchroin, Maelduibh, Maeletich, Moile, Maeli, Mailmithidh, Moile, Mailmorda, Maelmbuadh, Mailmuaidh, Maili, Maelruanaidh, Mael, Maele, Maile, Maele, Maele, Mailughra, Máolbethad, Maelecobho, Maile, Maelchræbe, Maelchrichi, Mael-chrói, Maoilidíthraib, Maildoburchon, Maele, Maelfabaill, Maile, Maílfoghamair, Maelghualai, Maele, Maelmochorghi, Maile, Mail, Maele, Maele, Maile, Maeli, Mae[l]snechtai, Maelhumai, Maele, Mael, Maelcoluim, Maele, Mael, Mael, Maelodrain, Maelpatraic, Mailsechnaill, Maelsechnaill, Maele

npr. m. Both 1 mael and 2 mael are largely used in the formation of masc. proper names (rarely fem.).

I Mael (adj.):

(a) seldom alone, treated as o- stem. M(ael), Ardm. 12b1 = Thes. ii 265 , Trip. 317.5 (equated with Lat. calvus, ib. 13 ). Mæl, Rawl. 130a55 . g s. Mail, 119a28 , 127a39 . meic Mail , Fél. 204.30 = m.¤ Mæil , Lism. L. 3976.

(b) in composition with a follg. noun which it qualifies. Maolbennachtaidh, BNnÉ 192.7 (-bhennacht v.l.). Cf. g s. Maelbennachtain, BB 88a22 . Maelcú, Lism. L. p. 315 (father of Brude king of the Picts). g s. Maelcon (of same), AU 583. Moelchú, Fél. 78.22 . Fergussan mac Maelcon, AU 702. Máellecán, Sg. 203 a ( Thes. ii p. xxii ), possibly represents a formation with g.s.

II Mael subst. is largely used folld. by (a) an adj., (b) gen. of a common noun, and (c) gen. of a proper name. a mbōi fo māil, ZCP xi 149 § 9 . ba leanb óc (gl. maol) Ailill in tan sin, Ériu ii 182.8n , ZCP xliv 177 . The orig. meaning in class (a) was that of ` cropped head' or `head', in classes (b) and (c) of `slave' or `servant', hence `devoted to'; class (c) received its chief development after the introduction of Christianity, generally in combination with names of saints (in this connexion the meaning ` tonsured ' may have been implied; it is occasionally glossed calvus). A humorous extension of the usage occurs in the fictitious names Ocmæl-Blongi, MacCongl. 77.23 ; Mælsaille mac Maílimme, 89.5 . Later gilla came to be used in the same way (see ZCP xii 301 , 313 for discussion of the subject). That these names are not true compds. is shown by (1) freq. declension of Mael as fem. subst., g s. Maíle (a follg. adj. being occasionally in agreement); (2) tmesis in poetry: Mael fial Finnia, AU 902 ; feil Mail chōir Canaigh, Mart. Don. Sept. 18 ; Mael caemfertach Cetair, Gorm. May 14 Later they came to be regarded as compds. and in gen. Máel > Maíl or remains unchanged. Both gen. forms Maíle and Maíl- (Máel-) often occur side by side. Maíle is common in AU up to the year 850, then gradually gives way to Máel- folld. by lenition, and goes out of use by 950. (See Ó Máille, Lang. of Ann. Ulster, p. 52 n. ).

(d) exceptionally in concrete sense: cid ara ndernsat Greic in met romor ut int ech, Aen. 462 (= molem hanc immanis equi, Aeneid ii 150 ). Cf. fer meite coimse `of small means', Laws iv 352.18 Comm. ropo ruiri co ro-méit, LL 127a51 `with exceeding greatness', MacCarthy 154 § 1 ).

II In various stereotyped or idiomatic phrases:

(a) is í (é, ed) mét, with gen. such is the greatness (amount, etc.) of: issí inso méit inna failte, Wb. 19d23 . hisí mét a suidigthe (gl. adeo), Thes. ii 11.40 ( BCr. 18b9 ). ba he mét a n-omain co na boi oen-duine díb cen cretem, PH 2481. ba he med na dochraidi co mba hecin etc., RC xxiv 190 § 1. Similarly: isid méit, Sg. 30a10 . is heid méit, ib. 14 (both gl. quantus).

(b) ní ed a m.¤ (folld. by subord. clause) not only , used in Glosses to transl. Lat. non tantum (solum): ni ed a met demnigmi-ni ar ndligeda not only do we confirm our sayings, Ml. 35b1 . ní ed a m.¤ nad [anad MS.] robae etugud Dǽ desom not only was there no jealousy, 32d10 . ní ed a m.¤ foilsigther ind inne, Sg. 211a10 .

(c) atá de méit (with gen.) so great (much) is . . .: roboi du meit a pecthae-som combu uisse a n-epeltu so great were their sins, Ml. 98c6 . ata do meid a sherce agum co mud duthracht lim feis les so much do I love him, Aen. 679. biaid do met a fergi so great will his anger be, Cog. 94.11 . bá dethbir són ém ce robaí do mét in chotulta boí do mét na athscísi it was natural that the length of (his) sleep should be proportioned to (his) fatigue, TBC-I¹ 1820 = TBC-LL¹ 2471 , where the construction is confused. ata do met is luigtech in dobriathar so weak is the adverb, Auraic. 4232. With poss. pron.: ferais tromṡnechta . . . ┐ baí da mét co roiched co formnaib fer, TBC-LL¹ 625. atá dha mhét d'ulc dorónais . . . nach saílim, etc. thou hast done so much harm, Acall. 3563.

(d) is méite it is much, it is of moment (= Lat. rei interest)? with neg. ní m.¤ it is no great matter; it is not surprising ? ni meite bid machdad forgare forru, Sg. 161b12 ; `not so very wonderful would be command to them' edd. Thes. ni méte dúibsi ni coitsi[d] frinni, Wb. 17b32 (context obscure, prob. corrupt). ní méti do-som an déicsin andiaráid sin, BDD 109 (for suggested emendations of both passages see Ériu x 191 ).

is méite lim(m) I deem it much, of importance; I desire? ba méite limm ni scartha friumm I would fain thou hadst not parted from me (? gl. desiderans te videre), Wb. 29d8 . másu oénadaig . . . fesi dam-sæ la Líadain, | méti la láech nod-fiad | ind adaig ní archriad a layman who would spend the night (with L.) would be fain that it did not wear out (?), Liad. and Cuir. 20.6 . meti [lim] ni badam beó | d'ingnais rig Maige da cheo I had rather not live without, LL 276a41 . meite lais na raitéd in talmain amail sige séig, MS. Mat. 473.4 = meti les no raited in trogain sín sighi se[i]g `he sped over the earth like the darting of a hawk', RC xiii 222.15 . médithir lem na [leg. no?] tairissed cuil . . . form' íarcómla for a déni, MacCongl. 85.6 (where Meyer emends: midithir) may be a reminiscence of this construction (= it would have been all the same to me if a fly . . . had alighted on my posterior?).

ba méite it would be desirable, fitting, natural: bá méte ná cotlad nech oc á imrádud, LU 1368 ( RC xxi 378.11 ). ba méite cach cride rod-car con-bóssad 'it were likely that every heart that loved him should burst', Brislech 668 . bá méte no beth i scélaib . . . a ndoróni Hechtoir, TTr.² 947. (folld. by cond.) ba méte leo ná fagēbtáis a ndoithin debtha co forcenn mbetha . . . Ba méite leo . . . no brufitís múrv na Trói (= it seemed to them they could never glut their desire for combat?), 1465 . uair is e cetna bescno . . . ba mede co mbad leithiu quam gach mbescna it were natural that it should be more comprehensive than any (other) speech, Auraic. 34. méte ann ó chách gan a chleith it were not likely it would be concealed (?), Keat. i p. 192 (poem). ba médi consnaidfi in tíag (= be sure to take great care of), Arch. Hib. iv 204.13 .

For a discussion of the phrase: is (ba) méite, folld. by a dependent subjunctive, see Ériu x 190 - 2 , where Bergin takes it as = it is (would be) likely .

(e) in méit, folld. by rel. clause, as much (many) as; those who (whom): in met fuil o talmain corice suide (i.e. the distance), Laws i 28.17 Comm. in file . . . acras in mhed na dlighenn who claims an amount to which he is not entitled, 58.17 Comm. in met ata a n-oghacht dibh as many of them as are unmarried, ZCP vi 26.19 . na gnéithe . . . nach cóir a ttús chomhfhocal ┐ an mhéd nach cóir 'na ndeireadh those which are incorrect at the end, IGT Introd. § 2. grádhuighim an mhéid grádhuighios mé, Proverbs viii 17. do sgríobhadh na méide a fuaras don tsenchas to write all I could find, MS. Mat. 554.18 .

Similarly with poss. pron. or cach: a méad do lean Lúiceifear, Dán Dé v 12. gach mét do ghairdechus dorinnedur ann, ní féttur a innisin the amount of rejoicing . . . cannot be told, RC xix 146 § 122. gach meit bhias for nech dhe sin, is moidi a anoir leo-som the more of it (tattooing) there is on a person, Marco P. § 119. gach med do arachtus doni the greater your prowess, Aen. 2898.

Similarly with art. or poss. pron.: in mét beta firién in doini, is in méit sin is téchtae doib dilgadche in proportion as men are righteous, forgiveness is fitting for them, Ml. 56a20 . in meit ba glan a chorp . . . is e méit bá glana a ainimm, PH 469. is e a mét ros-lín oman so greatly did fear possess them, 1121 . ba he a mét ro raid so co n-ingantaigtis `such was the force with which he uttered this', 6589 . as e a med ro thuaircset he, Aen. 2329. a mēt rohsantoig nem nār | nach tēt grād inn altōir ūad so much he longed for heaven that love of the altar never left him, ACL iii 306 § 6. beith mar bhím a mhéad as meise mé féin as long as I am myself (i.e. alive), Dán Dé xxiii 17. With prep. ar: is de atberthe in siriti de ar a met no delbad i n-ilrechtaib, FB 75. ar a mét ra thálsat na halma a loim because of the abundance of milk the herds gave, TBC-LL¹ 1591. ni erchoitigfet [na demna] duit ar a mét ro imgabais iat, PH 8342. ar a mét ba forbailid lais in áirc . . . do thorachtain so great was his joy at the arrival of the ark, LB 130b8 . Cf. on meid adaimter i trebad `since (? to the extent that) he is recognized', Laws v 284. 29 , quoted by O'Dav. 1261 with gl. meit .i. uair because (a mistaken inference).

(d) cech méit in proportion (as): cech méit is moo in onoir i mbi nech, is í sin mét is guasacht dó (= quanto maior honor, tanto maius periculum), PH 4114. cach mét ro fhás in gorta . . . is é mét ro erig menma . . . na crechaired, LB 154b18 . Similarly: nach mét bes n-ire ó Adam (gl. quanto posterius quisque), Enchir. Aug. 86b ( ZCP vii 485 ). cacha ra ba di mét a thurse great as was his fatigue, FB 85 (= ce ro bai do meit a toirsi, Eg.) is a contamination of this construction and II (c).

(e) in later lang. with art., folld. by subord. clause, in so far as, inasmuch as, because: dogeb-sa ó Día, an meid as dalta damh é, co ticfidh a trocaire air since he is my foster-son, BCC § 314. an mheid nach lor leat … sinde do bheathughadh, Carswell 2073 , see also Éigse ix 5 . ionnas gur ttugadh, an mhéid gur dhuine é, díol ceart do Dhia inasmuch as he was man, Ó Héodhusa 55.16 . thug [Dia] úghdarras dó . . . an mhéid gurab é mac an duine, John v 27. gurab é an tAthair is tosach don Tríonóid, an mhéid go bhfuil, ┐ gurab uaidh do geineadh an Mac inasmuch as He exists (i.e. is Being), Eochairsg. 38.23 ; 76.23 .
