50 doich adj(dóich ?) Mid.Ir. dóig (doaig, Cáin Ad. § 46 v.l., RC xxv
35.36 ; dóig: Róim, Gorm. March 14 ; dáig: cāid, Feb. 21 ).
Acc. to Ped. i 494 , ii 666, orig. same word as toich and developed
from it through nasalization in the common O.Ir.
formula in doich? is it likely? perhaps ; a view contested by
55Thurn., IF Anz. xxvii 17 , Bergin, ZCP vii 513 , Meyer, Ériu
vi 109 . Confusion could also have arisen after -s of copula (is).
In O.Ir. glosses written doich, doig, compar. dochu, but dóig,
Sg. 30a8 .
I (a) As adj. likely, probable, to be expected: docho interpre-
60tatur puto, unde doig dicitur , Corm. Y 463 . tri sethracha
góa: béss, dóig, toimtiu, Triads 136 . Used with cop. (ex-
pressed or understood) and followed by subord. clause (in
O.Ir. without conjunction and with rel. form of vb.), or
occas. by vn. clause: doig bas fír it is likely that it will be true,
65 Wb. 5d36 . in doich side do? náde ní d. ¤ is it likely of Him?

conidh fír uair is é M. roscribh it is all the more likely to be true,
85 Anecd. ii 36 § 21 . Rarely referring to a personal subject:
ba-sam dóig guin do chnis | daig ind echta dorighnis I was
likely to wound, I was near wounding
(?), Anecd. i 13.5 . dia
ndiglad nech iarna ecaib meite co mbad Mælodrán bad

86 . dóigh .i. dearbh no deimhin, O'Cl.
25(b) Folld. by LA likely (in sense of likeable); desirable, an
object of liking: a sense which seems confined to compar.,
where dochu alternates with tochu (toich): micc na muirech
. . . ni huatha[ib] tṡáilim sochar | is docho lim Issucán, Fél. 44
( Jan. 15 ). is e ba docha . . . la Dia do dóinib domain, LB
