é,os ní); in O.Ir. the formsas( Wb. 8a20 ),es( 22b6 ),is(cithisse

30In O.Ir. alwaysŏs(hóssi, Ml. 51c28 , is prob. a mistake); in
later Mid.Ir. and Mod.Ir.ós, prob. through influence ofós=
ó+cop. The meaning and would suit in most cases; the O.Ir.
pl.formotmight be explained as due to confusion with the
copula.
35Used in Glosses (1) to identify some word (subst., adj., rel.
pron.) with a noun or pers. pron. previously mentioned in
the sentence (freq. glosses the pron.ipse; see Ped. ii 153
§ 490 ); (2) to give an additional or explanatory detail about
some person or persons already mentioned in the sent.
