oll adj o,ā. great,ample ; cognate withol`beyond',cf. ind-oll, gl.

75extension (gl. Lat.amplus, Ml. 20a3 , 92a9 ), but it is widely
used to denote magnitude in general, of size, quantity, degree,
etc. In positive degree not common as pred., and as attrib.
used more often before the subst. forming a compd. than
after it. Very common incompar., where the orig. sense of
