in adjectival formation. Adjj. are formed by composition of the particle in- (which Pedersen Vgl. Gr. § 358 (f) regards as probably an intensive prefix but see Ériu xx 83 ) with (a) a substantive (the term ionshamhlughadh is applied to this type of adj. in IGT Introd. 33 § 151 , § 152 ) or vn. or (b) a participle in -t(a)e, -th(a)e. These adjectives are indeclinable and those in group (a) have the meaning capable of, fit for, proper for, worthy of (the action, thing or person expressed by the substantive): with the vn. the sense is usually passive: ` fit to be ....' If formed with the part. they have nearly always the force of the Lat. gerundive.

in- lenited the following initial, but in some later examples sh- is replaced by ts-.

(a): [Where the substantive compounded with in- was an o-stem, the resulting adj. was an i- stem.

Forms: leth, leith, leithe, leithe, lethe, leithi, lethe, -leithe, leath, leithdeimhin, lethshathach

n o and s, n. Freq. treated as two words, l. o, n. half and l. s, n. side (e.g. GOI, Críth Gabl., BDD). But it is in some contexts difficult to decide between the two meanings, and cf. d s. leth (side), Ml. 51d3 , 128a1 ( leith, 62b13 ), d s. leith (half), Sg. 18a4 (but see note in Thes.), leuth, BCr. 3c , SR 8041 ; g du. leithe, Sg. 25b6 is ambiguous in meaning, and with lethe, Fél. Dec. 4 may belong to the by-form leithe, which latter. however, is more reliably attested in meaning side than in meaning half: a s. lethe, Imr. Brain 49 , leithi, TBC-I¹ 525. d s. lethe (MS.), Críth G. 428 , Grail 2004 . -leithe, Ir. Astr. Tr. 8.27 .

In later lang. more usual in meaning half (for meaning side cf. taeb) except in adv. and prep. phrases, in which both meanings are frequent. leath m., IGT Decl. § 31. f. , § 39 .

According to Binchy Celtica v 86 , some of the legal examples below have been wrongly assigned here.

I With accumulative force, may (a) precede the first of two parallel clauses which it unites, or may (b) precede the second.

(a) equivalent to Latin praeterquam quod; besides that, in addition to the fact that, while . . . also : s.¤ ni thartsat som ní comtachtmar-ni `they have given nothing, we have asked for nothing', Wb. 24b20 . s.¤ nī ciūir nī cossēna | ind nóeb `the holy one neither bought nor sought . . .', Thes. ii 332.3 ( Hy. v 22 ). s.¤ ba sáthech in cū de | ní bu brōnach int oscur, Thes. 334.2 ( Hy. v 28 ). is hí ind ríaguil chert | s.¤ ní mór ní becc, Fél. 4.15 . s.¤ ní lungu ní thibiu, IT i 79.18 ( LMU 17 ). aitend .i. āith-tend, s.¤ is āith is tend, Corm. Y 56 . s.¤ is bol is blathugud, Trip.² 1747 . s.¤ bíd Día, bíd duine `besides being God, He will be man', Imr. Brain 48 . s.¤ ba hepscop som ba rī, Bruchst. § 96.8 . s.¤ ba molmar, ba mertnech, SR 4572 . atát inna tost . . . s.¤ ni thecat ille ni thiagat innond, LU 1874 . s.¤ nī maithe nī māide, Ériu ii 172 § 4 .

In some later exx. ocus precedes the second clause: s.¤ ni tergaid assin n-ath illei ┐ ni regaid innund, Lat. Lives 54.14 . s.¤ rambía maith in chentair-siu ┐ flaith ind alltair . . . tall, Ériu ii 202 § 19 . sech (.i. deimin) rom-ícadhsom in fecht so ┐ ní fuil eim lot n-enigh duit-si ann, ZCP v 526.1 = is maith ar comrac or Ailill sech rom ícadsa afechtsa ni fil imlot n-einig daitso and, LU 10784 ( TE 14 ). `sech ni ricfe i luc (leg. illuc) ┐ ni toruis húc', Irish Texts i 18 § 53 .

(b) and moreover, and besides : techta fuillema gill aine trenege la Feine, direnar trib setaib . . . [s]ech is comdire do cach recht and moreover it is equal `díre' (?), Laws v 410.y . Cf. 394.10 . toich tindtat a mna uadaib a lanamus (sic), (s.¤ ocus, v.l.) is dilis ni tidhnacar doib and moreover what was given to them is forfeited, 132.2 . ní pa cobair immurgo dosom s.¤ ni ragasa hi teg pende, Mon. Tall. 66 (153.z) . bōge dano ainm do ballān beg i mbītis cōic uṅgi óir, s.¤ nobīd fri hōl sainlenna as, Corm. Y 142 . ba imned la F. cen acallaim na ingine, s.¤ ba hé less nod mbert, TBFr. 156 . ? To this: .i. s ra cualid as n-é gl. si tamen illum audistis, Wb. 22a23 (`i.e. although ye have heard that it is He'). s.¤ ba indeithbir doibsom fochaid dae in chrud sin, Ml. 97d15 (`i.e. it was improper for them to try God in that way'). is s.¤ `and besides' gl. et in Iesu Christi et Saluatoris, Thes. i 713.24 (Cod. Taur.). sech gl. in regno Christi et Dei, Wb. 22b22 (Ed.'s note: leg. sechis `that is' as a gloss on et?).

II With adversative force, introducing an agreed fact which is or seems to be at variance with a previous statement. although, and this though, in spite of the fact that, and yet : ní sochude rochretti do neuch rochualammarni huaitsiu a dé s.¤ ra pridchaisem do chách aliter do neuch rochuale cách huanni, Wb. 5a7 . s.¤ ba foirbthe a ires sidi and yet his faith was perfect, 19a11 (gl. ita ut et Barnabas duceretur ab eís in illam similitudinem). intan dober dia in digail dommuinetar in dóini is ferc do insin s.¤ is ar chuindriug pectho dosber som ┐ ni ar ferc, Ml. 49b7 . s.¤ ni-sn-aerbartatar immurgu acht is arindí ro-nda-geinset ho gnimaib gl. talia loqui uiderentur, 29a4 . airindí fondasuidigedar hi cummato lasinni forsaforgair s.¤ ba huaisliu intí forchongair iar n-aicniud `because it puts itself on an equality with him whom it orders, though he that orders were naturally the superior', Sg. 161b5 . s.¤ ba degedbart ón in lege `for that was a good offering in Lege', Ml. 87b8 . ni coimnacmarni .i. s.¤ ni coimnactar ar namait són fortanbristis ni, 135d4 . amal bid iar maidm chatha . . . s.¤ immurgu is euseph duchoid i negipt and this though it was J. who went, 84c9 . sech níta aidlicen gl. tamquam indegens, 70b7 . sech nita terca som acht is mara gl. ut exiguitate (ac tenuitate sui possint latere), 92c13 . sech ni chumgat ón immurgu, 92c14 . ní fil chosmailius fír do neuch asber nad mbed dliged remdeicsen dáe du doinib s.¤ remi-deci dia dunaib anmandib amlabrib and this though God provides for the dumb animals, 55d25 . ni haile fir thuaithe, acht fir cuibse aen fir doniscnai seach as coibne la Feine imb recht fo nā . . ., Laws v 490.9 . gébthir fo mac n-imraichni | s.¤ bíd Moninnán mac Lir | a athir, a ḟithithir, Imr.
