muich(múich,muích) n[f.] gloom,dejection,sadness . Gener-
ally by edd. taken asmúich, a secondary form ofmúch
85`smoke', but perh. a distinct word. In Mid.Ir. texts nearly
always writtenmuichwithout accent, in LB occas.múich(but
the LB scribe is prone to superfluous accents and, moreover,
-úi-oft. stands for-uí-). Prob. the word had a dual development:
muich> (1)múichthrough influence ofmúch, (2)muích
through association withmaeth= O.Ir.moíth;cf. maeíth
5which may represent this word. The transition of-ui-to-úi-or
-uí-is not unknown elsewhere (cf.the occas. confusion between
muinandmaín).muich .i. toirse, O'Cl. ba muich mór (.i. ba
