II Affectionate remembrance,longing,affection,love(?);
this meaning may have arisen from the associations of
écmais=absence,e.g. grád écmaise:dom shíorrún Raemonn
...tabhair cuimhniughadh géar éaghmaise is annsachta,
35 Hackett xxxv 3 (cf. TSh. 8612 ).a pháirt damh ní
áirmhim ná a aoibhe, | a éagmais ghnáith 's a ghrádh 's a
dhíoghrais, ib. xxxix 19 .

écmaisech adj o-ā(écmais) absent, applied to love for
one unseen: grádh éagmaiseach tug Moiriath inghean
40Scoiriath dó ar méid na clú do bhí air`violent passion'
Keat. ii 2556 .do thug sí grádh eagmaiseach d' Eoghan
23 E 26,23 (`very great love' J. Fleming, RIA slips).
In both exx. the translators appear to be thinking of
éccuimsech, of which a metathetic formécmuisechmay
45have arisen. If not a mistake forteagmhuiseach(cf.
tegmaiseach accidental FM iv 768.7 ), the follg. is
perhaps rather to be referred toéccuibsech:cínneamhuin,
miothapadh, anrath, tubaisde, earchal, neith eagmhuiseach
