Sampling declarations

The electronic text represents pp. 190–193. Thurneysen's footnotes are retained.

Editorial declarations

Correction: Text has been proof-read three times.

Normalization: The electronic text represents the edited text. Capitalization at sentence start has been introduced. Names are segmented in line with CELT practice. Thurneysen uses a dot to separate compound or simple verbs from their prefixes; this is replaced with hyphen(s) as the case requires; e.g. line 1: con.acatar becomes co n-acatar; line 3: conda.bert becomes co-n-da-bert; line 2: con.diacht becomes con-diacht. In line 7 of the poem ní.téigtis has been separated: ní théigtis. Dos.athigtis on line 7, page 191 is rendered do-sathigtis (as in ss+a), a long vowel may be intended. Notae augentes are hyphenated off. Text supplied by the editor is tagged sup resp="RT". Editorial notes are tagged note type="auth" n="" and numbered. Unclear words are marked by the editor; they appear within uncl tags.

Quotation: Direct speech is marked q.

Hyphenation: Soft hyphens are silently removed. When a hyphenated word (hard or soft) crosses a page-break, this break is marked after completion of the hyphenated word.

Segmentation: div0=the saga. div1=the section; page-breaks are marked pb n=""; poems are treated as embedded texts.

Interpretation: Names are not tagged, nor are terms for cultural and social roles.

Reference declaration

A canonical reference to a location in this text should be made using “section”, eg section 1.

  1. 'ediencaill' lesen O'Grady, Catalogue of Irish MSS, 89 und K. Meyer, Zeitschrift für Celtische Philologie 3, 41 A. 1. Doch siehe unten in paragraph 2 'ecen caill'. 🢀

  2. oder noch 'carsus'? 🢀

  3. Die Herstellung ist hier sehr unsicher. Im vorhergehenden Satz muß erzählt sein, daß Blathine entführt wird; das ergibt sich aus dem Folgenden. Da diese Handlung wohl nicht durch 'conieth' ausgedrückt sein kann, habe ich 'condep-t' als 'conda-bert' gefaßt, nicht als 'con-epert', woran man zuerst denkt, zumal das folgende 'carusa' auf direkte Rede hinzuweisen scheint. Aber vielleicht hatte schon die Vorlage '-epert' als 'sagte' verstanden und darnach den folgenden Text geändert. Die Form, die ich ihm ganz vermutungsweise gegeben habe, beruht darauf, daß CuRoi im folgenden sich in den Besitz von Blathine setzt, so daß eine Bemerkung, daß er sie schon zur Zeit ihrer Entführung liebte, wohl an ihrem Platze ist. 'Ammait' bezeichnet neben der weiblichen Hexe auch männliche Wesen (s. Meyer, Contrib.), aber vielleicht war das Wort seinem grammatischen Geschlecht nach weiblich; darum habe ich 'ind ammait' geschrieben. 🢀

  4. oder 'cota-selat'? 🢀

  5. eher 'na-ngádatar' 🢀

  6. oder 'léim'? oder 'lieic'? 🢀

  7. oder 'mleguin'. 🢀

  8. Vgl. Anc. Laws, Gloss. s.v. 'toirriachad'. 🢀

  9. [Es folgt eine unklare 'retoric']. 🢀

  10. eher 'ba aí'. Kaum 'boí i noí'. 🢀

  11. Vgl. 'ros-teind cona scín' LL 116b und O'Davoren 1542. 🢀

  12. Ganz unsichere Herstellung. 🢀

  13. Dem Sinne würde etwa genügen: 'Goíte ó Choin Chulinn int éo'. Das 'do' könnte zum Vorhergehenden gehören. 🢀
