Description
Abstract (cited)
Early Irish glossaries contain a number of entries in which Greek etymologies are offered. The format resembles that of continental Graeco-Latin glossaries and it is proposed that material similar to that which is attested in Laon ms 444 was a source for the vernacular glossaries. The implications of this are explored and various other sources are suggested. A possible model for the use of sanas in Sanas Cormaic may also be found in a definition of apocrypha in Scholica graecarum glossarum.
