Old IrishEdit

Alternative formsEdit

  • (preposition): al
  • (quotative particle): ar

Etymology 1Edit

Kortlandt believes this particle to be a contraction of a Proto-Celtic phrase beginning with *ol est. In particular, he derives the inflected form olsí from a contraction of a Proto-Celtic phrase *ol est ēgt, with *ēgt deriving from *h₁eǵ- (to say). Its ending was reinterpreted as the feminine singular pronoun , giving rise to the analogical masculine form olsé.[1]

ParticleEdit

ol

  1. (quotative) to say
Usage notesEdit

This particle is used after or interrupting a quotation, either in an inflected form or followed by the identity of who is speaking.

InflectionEdit

This particle inflects similarly to a preposition, but for pronominal gender and number only.
