pejorative particle, possibly (as suggested by Pedersen Vgl. Gr. ii 10 , cf. Wortk. § 9 ) orig. a compar. mis ` less ', akin to second syll. of Lat. nimis, a view supported by the compds. miscais `hatred' (<cais `love'), misimbert (see mí-imbert below) and perhaps misceird `evil step' (?), O'Dav. 392. In O. and earlier Mid.Ir. always pejorative, often opposed to compds. with caín-; in later lang. often a mere negative. Used in composition with (I) nouns, (II) adjs. derived from nouns or participial, (III) occasionally with vbs.; often used in etymol. glosses, e.g. milliud quasi mí-shilliud .i. drochshilliud, Corm. Y 858. The follg. list is illustrative only.
