Forms: na co, nó co

part mod. Ir. nó go until . The orig. form is na > no, but exx. of nó occur fairly early, e.g. LU 9225.

Acc. to Ped. ii 318 - 319 , a development of O.Ir. na co n- used with the subj. mood to join a conditional clause to a neg. main clause, the orig. sense being ` unless ', passing by degrees into that of ` until '; the development was prob. influ- enced by the independent use of the conj. co n- `until'. During the Mid.Ir. period na co (no co, nó co) comes to mean simply until and to be used with an affirm. main clause, and with the indic. mood (generally with a pret. to denote an actual fact which occurred at the end of a period indicated in the main sent.).
