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. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...for veipak-. I have called veip-'raven', but it may be 'rook' or 'crow ', and from it may have been formed the secondary stem veipak-= 'crow-like' and so--'raven', giving Ir. fipach. If anyone asks for a parallel, let him turn to Stokes 64, where he will find 'kapero-s Bock' followed by the secondary 'kaperak-s Schaf i.e. a horned breed. I pass to the place-names found in Longnon's map of Gaul under the Romans (Atlas kist. de la France, pi. II). Auncdonacum is a derivative of the man's name Aunedo(n) found at Reims (Holder), and that from the stem of 'aunio-s grttn' (Stokes 4) with the common suffix-edo (see Holder). For similar colour-names cf. Candiedo, Donnedo, Vindedo, Viredo. Modem name, Aulnay (-de-Saintonge). Brigiosum is from 'brgi Berg' (Stokes 171) and means 'Hilly'. Modern name, Brioux. Lemonum or Limonum is the neut. of an adj. in-ono-, -onu-, from the stem of 'leima Linde' (Stokes 242, Macbain 203), and means Lindenham: cf. Welsh llwyf. The stem of Locodiacus is found also as Logotigiac-and Locoteiac-, all three forms appearing to be of the 6th cent. It is lucot-'mouse', for which see Holder (303) and Stokes (244), and the site either swarmed with mice or was named after a chief Lucoteios. Modern name, Liguge. Batiate quite obviously means 'the place of the embankment' or 'the place of the earthen wall' (see the beginning of this paper). Modern name, Reze. Bauranum has not been reached by Holder, and I see no fitting stem for it in Stokes. It is probably Raur-anum, with the stem of Raur-acum and the adjectival suffix (= Gr.-avo ) seen in Rodanus and Sequana. Modern name, Sainte-Soline. Segora is either from 'seg saen' (Stokes 294, quoting Lat. seges) or from 'sego-Gewalt, Sieg' (id. 297)...show more
