v sees. Frequ. (outside O. Ir. Glosses) at-c(h)í with meaningless infix. pron., in rel. with inf. pron. sometimes also as-. Prot. stem -a(i)cc-. In O. Ir. with depon. inflexion in subj. pres. and with redupl. future. For active inflexion in subj. see Celt. Verb 138 . In pret. active prot. forms only are found, the conjunction co n- being used where no other conjunct particle is present (deuterotonic forms occur in pass.). In perf. deut. with root -derc- and perfective -com- (ad-condarc etc.). There is no special perf. form after conj. particles. Note also ad-rodarcar can be seen , Sg. 172a2 . In later lang. ad- (at-) is gradually replaced by do- and the conj. stem acquires inorganic f-, giving the forms do-chí, -faic-, both with b-fut.. In past tense the general independent form is ad-(do-) chonnai(r)c (from the perf.), the form after conj. particles -(f)ac(c)- (from the pret.), both with endings of the s-pret..

Forms: neph-, neb-, neph-, neb-, neph-, neph-, neph-, nem-, neph-, nem-, nemth-, neamh-, neamh-, neimh-

(neb-, neph-) neg. prefix used in composition with nouns and adjectives in temporary formations, serving merely to negate the positive sense of the word or denote the absence of the object (action, quality, etc.) expressed thereby, without adding any new meaning as do the prefixes an-, é-, mí- (e.g. nebchretem = not believing; anchretem = unbelief). In O.Ir. the forms neb- and neph- are used; in Wb. neb- before a vowel or voiced consonant, neph- before a voiceless cons.; in Sg. and Ml. only neph- (often written as a distinct word). In early Mid.Ir. neph- (nef-) and nem- are used, before voiceless and voiced consonants respectively; during the Mid.Ir. period neph- is ousted by nem- (also written nemp-, nemth-). Before a palatal vowel in the follg. word the final consonant is affected (later expressed by the spelling neim-). Mod.Ir. neamh-, (before palatal vowel) neimh-. Lenites follg. consonant; occas. (in late texts) eclipses a follg. b: nemhmbith, Ériu ii 64 n. 31 ; neimmbind, ZCP iii 32.2 ; neimmbisid (leg. -mbisig), O'Gr. Cat. 289.32 ; neamhmbáidh, Keat. i 50.22 ; neambocht, Keat. Poems 30. nemtsomainech, ZCP x 306.34 is due to analogy of cases in which lenited s prefixes t after the article; cf. nemtsos.

In Glosses common esp. with verbal abstracts, participles and nomina agentis. With vn. commonly used in O. and Mid.Ir. in the sense not to (do someth.), to refrain from (doing someth.), where in Mod.Ir. the prep. gan would be used. With adj. in Glosses freq. renders Lat. in-.

With nouns and adjs. often used to express an alternative or contrast to a foregoing corresponding positive: imdibe Tít nó a nebimdibe Titus' circumcision or his non-circumcision, Wb. 18d9 . eter gess ┐ nemgess, BDD 59. ní ébairt riu a chathim ┐ ní ebairt a nemchathim to eat it . . . not to eat it, TBC-LL¹ 137. ni tharat aichne for charait nā for nemcharait, FDG 238. o na comarsannaib ┐ ó na nemchomarsannaib, PH 7576. náire fri maith, nemnáire fri holc, PH 8228. ara hingin do tabairt do Aenias ┐ ara nemtabairt do Thuirn, Aen. 1644. do ced Gall ┐ do neimhchet Chloinne Taidhg, AFM v 1708.7 . an laphuirt ┐ a[n] nemhlabhuirt speech and silence, Ériu v 130 § 47 . ri ro gni cach ṅdūil . . . aicseid ocus nemaicseid, SR 330. cia lasmad laind nō nemlaind in sluagad, TBC-LL¹ 413. longa na cenntur foicsi ┐ nemhfoicsi near and far, Marco P. 5.

In many cases compds. with nem- come to be stable and assume a more or less positive meaning; cf. marbum na nemcaraid ud Crist those foes of Christ (i.e. the Saracens), RC xix 164.2 , with FDG 238 quoted above.

In later Bardic poetry compds. of neamh-, neimh- somet. serve mainly to supply a rhyme.

In later Mid.Ir. occas. compounded with finite forms of verb.
