(a) a short poem, ode or chant , of which two supposed exx., taken from a 16th cent. MS., are given in ZCP i 133 ; both composed in syllabic verse, without rhyme but strongly alliterated. (The abbrev. .r. often added in the margin of MSS. over against a rhapsodical utterance, and by Windisch, Wörterb. p. 748 assigned to this word, more probably stands for retoiric, see Heldensage p. 54 , cf. LU p. 108 . The word does not seem to occur in this sense in early Mid.Ir. lit., and Thurneysen (l.c.) suggests that the use is due to a misunder- standing of the abbreviation): itbert an rosg, TBC 3533 (Stowe) = rábert na briathra, LL. dichetal for otrach .i. adhbhal-cantainn le rosg nó orrtha, Triads p. 39.4 (gloss on § 117 ). rosg catha, Oss. i 156 . tus ruisc Celtica x 148 n. 22 .
