adj io-iā, datta, data, late MSS also dathta (daththa 23 N 15, 164. 13 , 18th century MS); rhymes with brecnata SR 3933 , dínerta, ib. 2831 , bratta IT iii 68. 15 , curata LL 394. 3 , saṁradhta, 23 N 15, 129. 8 , fata, MacCarthy 206. 5 ; LL 129 b 21 ; 157 a 9 . COMP. dattu, rhyming with maccu LL 142 a 12 ; datta, Laws v 274. 21 .—dattae has the appearance of an adj. deriv. of 1 dath or of a past pc. of dathaid; but apparently the feeling of its connection with dath was early lost, as the marked divergence in meaning shows. For semantic development see ÉC xxxv 168 . Apart from the phrase `is dattae lim' (already Wb 8 a 6 ), it mostly occurs in chevilles and stereotyped phrases, very often, as it seems, introduced to alliterate with a neighbouring noun in d-. It seems mainly a literary word, used by Mid.-Ir. writers in the vague sense of súairc and cáin, by which it is occasionally replaced even in com- paratively old MSS (Rawl.).

The old inflexion is represented by n s. Daui, Dau, Dái: g s. Duiach (cf. ái poetry: gen. uath): n p. Dauich. In Mid.-Ir. MSS we meet with a double inflexion, one starting from the n s. Daui, Dau, forming the g s. Daui, Dai; the other from the oblique cases (and n p.) forming the n s. Duach. For n s. Daui cf. fili, óigi. Daui is a npr. in -vik like Ogh. DENA-VECA (g s., † Dianach), Ogh. RITTA-VECAS (g s., Rethach). Its Ogh. equivalent would probably be † Ogh. DAVO- VECCA or † Ogh. DASU-VECCA (= Dauoch), if, as is not unlikely, it is to be compared with Gaul. DAVOS or Gaul. DASVVIOS. Dau appears to have become obsolete as a npr. as early as the early 7th century; the gen. Duach, however, lingered on throughout the Mid.-Ir. period in connection with Síl, Dál, Clann, Húi, and in place-names with Clúain, Ard (Ard nDuach, Laud 610, 99 a 1 ), &c.—Derived from Dau is Duichne, q.v.
