Forms: óll

adj o,ā. great, ample ; cognate with ol `beyond', cf. ind-oll , gl. ultra, Sg. 220a6 (see 1 ol). The primary sense seems that of extension (gl. Lat. amplus, Ml. 20a3 , 92a9 ), but it is widely used to denote magnitude in general, of size, quantity, degree, etc. In positive degree not common as pred., and as attrib. used more often before the subst. forming a compd. than after it. Very common in compar., where the orig. sense of transcending a certain limit (size, number, etc.) often comes out. óll , gl. [requiem] amplam, Ml. 20a3 . oll gach ní as mór, Metr. Gl.
