ind folld. by disjunctive form of pers. pron. (os mé, os tú, os é, os ní); in O.Ir. the forms as ( Wb. 8a20 ), es ( 22b6 ), is (cithisse = cid ise, 22a7 a prima manu; 26b5 , 33a7 ) also occur. With 3 pl. pron. O.Ir. uses oté ( Sg. 77a8 ), ot he ( Ml. 130a3 ); Mid.Ir. at, LL 72b44 ( TBC-LL¹ 1944 ), ité, 248a17 ; later os iat.

Pedersen Vgl. Gr. i 275 conjectures in os a contraction of ocus and (a view supported by similar use of ocus); so also Thurn. ZCP xvi 265 ; Vendryes Gram. 285 an adv. containing perh. a form of the cop.; for another theory see ZCP xiv 311 fg . In O.Ir. always ŏs ( hóssi, Ml. 51c28 , is prob. a mistake); in later Mid.Ir. and Mod.Ir. ós, prob. through influence of ós= ó+cop. The meaning and would suit in most cases; the O.Ir. pl. form ot might be explained as due to confusion with the copula.

Gr. ii 153 § 490 ); (2) to give an additional or explanatory detail about some person or persons already mentioned in the sent. (general use in Mid. and Mod.Ir., cf. the Anglo-Irish idiom: `Are you angry with me and I telling you the truth?'). The form osé is used referring to a neuter (see SP iii 6 quoted below).
