(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 .

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.

1 ro, ru

Cite this: eDIL s.v. 1 ro, ru or dil.ie/35364

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 .

Cf. also robo, rodbo ` it may be, perhaps ', somet. or, whether , which Pedersen Vgl. Gr., ii 287 , is inclined to regard as a pret. in sense of a potential pres.: Wb. 14c24 , 16d7 . lubair ┐ legend, rodbu forcetail no scribend, Rule of Tallaght 55 ( LB 11b13 ). rodbu ar chairiguth ind uilc . . . rodbu ar demniguth in maith, Ériu vii 162 § 5 .

(d) somet. instead of 1 no with impf. ind. to express reiterated action (cf. Strachan, Phil. Soc. Trans. 1899, 411 ): ro gnaithiged F. dol do dénum irnaigthi, RC xii 332 § 22 . ro caithed proinn moirsesir, 334 § 24 . conid airi sin ro chaitdis a bfleadha, Marco P. 12 . ro bheiredh an t-aingel . . . an sacrament dhó gacha domnaigh, Fl.

Prol. 273 . ni torgaitha he should not defraud , Wb. 25b5 . nár thugar-sa . . . cúis ar sgartha may I give no cause for our separation , Content. xxix 37 . mac Móire . . . gur ḟóire ḟira Erenn, IGT Dec. ex. 269 .

(g) instead of 1 no in Old Irish with fut. and condit. of subst. vb., to infix an obj. pron.; and regularly with condit. of copula when no conjunct particle precedes. robad bethu dom dían chomalninn, Wb. 3b28 . epert . . . rondbiad fáilte libsi et robtis maithi for mbésasi ara chiunn, 16b19 . ra-mbia dígal he shall have punishment , Wb. 27c13 . rob-bia indocbál ye shall have glory , 13d32 . ropia [= robbia] ind fochricc, 16a13 , cf. 27c12 .
