céile n io,m.See Zimmer, KZ xxx 35 - 43 . Except somet. in
legal sense (d) usually with prec. possess. or follg. gen. and
tending to function as a pronoun rather than as an ordinary
noun. The main meanings as noun are servant and fellow ,
80the term always implying a relationship. It is doubtful (see
Zimmer) whether this was originally one of inferiority or
one of equality.
