Forms: su-, so-, su-, sonairt, soibheart, soifer, soicheneol, sogh-, soth-, soghthengaid, soighidirdhealbhtha, sothbiadach, sothchroidheach, suacubuir, sochenēuil, sochoisc, soacallaim, soāig, Sodelbi

prefix leniting the follg. initial. In hiatus usually su-; in other positions so- and su- alternate without regard to the quality of the vowel in the next syll., GOI § 365 . In old compds. with follg. neutral consonance: sonairt (nert), solus (lés), ib. § 166 . Later felt as an autonomous element of the compd. and adopts the quality of the vowel of follg. syll., e.g. soibheart, Dánta Gr. 41.27 . soifer, Leb. Gab.(i) 156 n. 4 . soicheneol, MR 96.6 . Occasionally spelt sogh-, soth-: soghthengaid, O'Curry 444 . soighidirdhealbhtha, Luc. Fid. 375.1 . sothbiadach, Laws i 42.4. Comm . sothchroidheach, Donlevy 62.24 . Used in composition with nouns, adjectives, participles, verbals of necessity, and rarely with verbs. When prefixed to nouns to form adjj. the resulting formations, when from o- and ā- stems, generally assume i-inflexion: suacubuir, Ml. 67c8 (accobor). sochenēuil, 101d12 (cenél). sochoisc, Wb. 30b28 (cosc). (Note, however, sásad sognass, Anecd. i 60 § 84 . a slesaib saerclann socineol, Stair Erc. 894 ). The usage in the case of u- stems varies: bad sochrud, Wb. 6a30 . fer sochraid, SR 5751 . mad . . . socomais (socomas, v.l.), ZCP xiv 369 § 30 (commus). On the model of compds. of o- and ā- stems compds. are freely formed in the later language by prefixing so- to the gs. of any noun, the resulting formations being treated as attrib. genitives and left uninflected (see Bergin, Ériu xii 229 ): ben . . . soacallma, MacCongl. 97.3 . lind . . . soóla, TBC-LL¹ 3025 . saerṡloinnti soicheneoil, MR 96.9 . Nouns formed by prefixing so to o- and ā- stems usually retain the declension of the simplex. Note, however, soacallaim (soacallma, soacallmacht, v.ll.) `affability', Tec. Corm. § 1.5 . soāig (ág), Ériu i 118 § 8 .

Freq. used to form artificial compds. in etymological glosses: so-abb gl. sab, ACC 26 . so-acomol gl. socomul, Laws ii 362.4 Comm . so-ána gl. sona, i 42.7 Comm . soth-cedach .i. socothach .i. sothbiadach, 42.4 Comm . so-raidid gl. saeraid, 92.z Comm . Note also: fer . . . sofer a saerughudh, Auraic. 1797 .

The follg. list is illustrative only. Words no longer felt as compds. of so-, e.g. solus (so+lés), sonairt (so+nert), etc., are given as separate articles.
