In both cases the use of amal is no doubt due to the Lat. sicut. Possibly also: amail is tre metur ro cet in chantaice, Hib. Min. 6.188 .

for `dni' AFM v 1552 read didiu ( dī, Aut. MS fo 87 a ).

Of the Old-Ir. forms dono arose from dano, as ocus from acus, under the influence of the u-shaded `n.' At the time of the Würzburg Glosses dano was still kept distinct from dono, the latter being used after interrogatives apparently as an enclitic, without accent: ar cia dono, Wb. 2 d 10 . cepu dono, 7 d 16 . ce dono, 8 d 15 (cf. cid dono, Laws i 48. 24 ; 54. 3 f.b. ).

The syncopated Mid.-Ir. forms dno, no retaining `o' show that also in Old-Ir. the stress fell on the ultimate, as dano stressed on the penultimate would have given Mid.- Ir. dana. The Mid.-Ir. writing denu ( RC xii 72 § 44 , cf. dechum, debert) points in the same direction. Compare also the writing doná in the FM. In poetry the accent falls on the ultimate:

Acall. 3852 : mairg dadhair don luing dana. nachasainic Tonn Chlidna.

The syncopated form is often used in poetry for the convenience of the metre. It appears in several poems ascribed to poets of the 11th and 12th centuries, e.g.

LL 144 a 9 : Almon rathuit artús dā (dno leg.) i nEtail ra Troiano.

(a poem by Giolla an Choimdhedh Ua Cormaic of the early 12th century).

LL 8 a 39 : anmand tri mac Nemid dā (dno leg.) Luach Cessarni ┐ Luachro.

(poem by Tanaidhe Ua Maoilchonaire †1136; v.l. no, BB 46 a 19 ).

LL 34 b 31 : i ndáil fer talman sund dno [labrad] (cf. l. 43 ) lá is aidchi rempo.

(poem by Cúán O'Lothcháin †1024).

Further in a 10th-century poem from Rawl. 1 a 1 , Hib. Min. 40 st 3 :

fuilriud már guin dóine dno ocus plág for pecthacho.

in Fingen mac Flainn's poem on the Fir Arddae from the middle of the 9th century, ACL iii 297 st 60 :

ní mandingentar dno dóibsium dál ndrong ndelech.

and ICM st 188 :

atchitis dno (sic leg.) triasan tor sin forsin dorus atreab nálaind &c.

This brings us back to the time of the Codex Sangallensis; whence it follows that dno, though not occurring in any MS older than the LU, belongs to the Old-Ir. period.— No was developed from dno in Mid.-Ir. time. It seems impossible to fix the date of this development accurately. The appearance of `no' in old poetry, as BB 46 a 19 , 297 b 42 , is no test, as no might be a late substitute for dno. The fact that the earliest instances occur in the LL points to the 12th century. In Mid.-Ir. MSS dā, dno, and no go hand in hand. The spoken form was dno, later no; but the traditional writing dā lingered on for centuries in the MSS. No is found in MSS from the early 13th to the 15th century, when it became obsolete. The FM write doná, dana, dna, purely literary forms. In the Annals of Ulster the particle does not in any form occur after the year 1204 ( AU ii 242. 2 ).

In Mid.-Ir. no syntactical distinction is made between dā, dno, dna, and no. The particle is never placed at the head of the sentence, but can, apart from this, occupy almost any position within it. It follows stressed and unstressed words, and appears particularly often after emphasising particles, a circumstance which contributed to the syncope of the first syllable. It gives a certain emphasis to the accented word immediately preceding. The following is a synopsis of the most common positions of the particle:

Forms: ra, doràla, ri, dogní, dorigéni, dorigni, re, relic, reilced, níro, náro, coro, nír, nár, cor, ro, doro-r-ban, duforbad, do-r-airngert

preverb used with various forms of a finite vb. whether simple or compound; lenites follg. consonant except, in Old Irish, when in pretonic position. (Its use as a fixed preverb in the composition of many compd. vbs. is not dealt with here). Under the accent it somet. assumes the form ra, e.g. doràla (= do-ro-la); and in O.Ir. becomes ri in the vb. dogní (pret. 3 s. dorigéni, dorigni); with léicid, re ( ní relic , Ml. 23b4 , nach reilced , 49a10 ). It is often attached as enclitic to a conjunct particle: níro, náro, coro, later nír, nár, cor.

In O.Ir. when used with a compd. vb. ro orig. followed all fixed preverbs: doro-r-ban (to-ro-ben-), Ml. 62a20 , duforbad (to-fo-ben-), 92b4 ; but this rule becomes obsolete already in the O.Ir. period: do-r-airngert, Wb. 14c32 . Thurn. Hdb. §§ 520 - 3 . ZCP xii 286 .

In O.Ir. the vbs. ro-fitir (really a perf. tense, see (a) follg.), ro-cluinethar and ro-laimethar drop ro- only when preceded by another conjunct particle. For etymology and syntactical uses see Zimmer, KZ xxxvi 433 ff. ; Thurneysen, KZ xxxvii 52 ff. and ZCP xii 286 ; Strachan, Phil. Soc. Trans. 1896, 77 ff. ; 1897, 326 ff. ; 1899, 408 ff. ; RC xxiii 201 ; M. L. Sjoestedt-Jonval, Études Celt. iii 105 ff. , 219 ff.

Used (a) with the pret. to express a perfect. ro comalnisid-si an ro pridchissem-ni dúib, Wb. 26b6 . In mod. Ir. it is displaced by do except after a neg. or a syntactical preverb: do ghabh, nír ghabh, gach ar ghabh sé.

(b) with pres. ind. and subj. with perfective sense (generally to express an action which is completed before another takes place); also with subj. after résiu `before', acht `provided that', `if only', co `until': in nuall dongniat ho rumaith fora naimtea remib the cry they make when they have defeated their enemies , Ml. 51c9 . doberum . . . dilgud don fhoirind ronto-craidet, PH 7941 . cipe . . . ro-da-gatta, diren se whoever steals them pays a fine , Laws iv 198.18 . molid resiu ro cursacha, Wb. 4a2 . act ro cretea deacht, 27b15 .
