Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1894 edition. Excerpt: ...north.' The change is in that case not purely phonetic but due probably to the influence of some other word: compare freskoylt now fraslal ' Ascension ' (p. 93). As to the connexion of meaning between ' left ' and ' north ' see the note on twoaie ' north ' (p. 61), the equivalent of which we have in the Irish tuascert = tuallz-scert. Another Manx word for ' lefthanded' is kiuttag/ 1 (Goi. cialaclz), but it is of obscure origin. 3 I am not sure about the derivation of this word, but I should have possibly regarded it as the exact equivalent of Sc. ceannard 'commander, ' had there not been also a Sc. ceanna6lzard of the same meaning. Can it be that the latter part of these words is the English word warn' as in ' wood-ward '2 ' the whole would in that case mean 'head ward ' or ' chief protector.' u and gniartaglzy 489, now written nzartaglztjy ' to strengthen or confirm: (Ir. near/flg/Ead/z, Sc. neartaiclz); glzl and sl (both medial only) as in 6oglz_lyn, still written 60glzzj/n, plural of 6oglt ' poor ' (Goi. 6ocents'/Id); auslyl, now written os/yl ' apostle or disciple ' (O. Ir. apslal, Mod. Ir. a6sdal, Sc. a6slol); and 6, now written oo 'thou, ' similarly retains its original t after verbal forms ending in s in the Phillips Prayerbook, while the modern orthography levels the dental away, as the result probably of analogy rather than of a purely phonological change. Thus we have kriid z'a'glzysl us 510, now caid yeeaglzys oo ' hov long wilt thou look' (Ir. ca' fad 6lzias lfi dlza'flzazksz'n, Sc. cz'a fad a slzeallas lu). Here also should be mentioned Teutonic ftshow more
