Prof. Strachan writes in the Revue Celtique, lOfyj: "It is well-known that the Subj. of the Irish verb has formally only two tenses, a present and a past. I have discovered clear indications that in British, as in Irish, there were at one time only two tenses ... In the same passage an earlier text shews the past Subj. when a later exhibits the plpf. Thus R.B. Mab. yr nas gwelsei W. B. kyn nys rywelhei 454 '22 &c. . Later plpf. Subj. forms plpf. Ind., and have come from them. . The spread of the plpf. Ind. to the Subj. goes along with the disappearance of A forms in the Subj., whereby the past Subj. came to coincide in form with impf. Ind., except in a few words . and even there is a tendency to substitute byZitm for bewn.
. . .

=

.

.

=

.

.

.

.

As Thurneysen has pointed out K7.., XXXI, 10, the plpf. Ind. is in itself a British innovation, modelled on the impf. In Early Welsh the impf. is still found in a plpf. sense in the apodosis of conditional sentences, e.g. diri a collei bei fias prinAei=ma.n would have been lost if He had not redeemed him bei yscuypun nys gunawn — \{ I had known &c." B.B.C., 4i'i & 8i'i2.
. .
.

.

In his paper on the SuBJ. MooD in Irish Prof Strachan has shown that rois found W'ith the past, only in exceptional circumstances. "In Welsh ry is absent in the instances quoted from the B.B.C. and in a couple of others, but more generally it is present. Here obviously we are confronted with a Welsh innovation to get a more distinct form to express the plpf. sense. A similar use of ry is found with the Pres. Subj. when it has the force of a perfect, cf. Eriu II, 2t8. This use, however, is not without its exception." See * Continued from page 112 q,v, a digon/iom = Vihsit we have done 30-3.

The Tables of the Verbs have crowded out the analysis of the orthography. The Notes were printed over a year ago, otherwise
the Verbs would have fared similarly. As there is no real end to any work, only a leaving off, I stop with the few corrections and additions which follow. First comes xx-17 of the preface. Nis credav goel can nid kerth. Why do we say " God bless you " to the man who sneezes ? We do not know, but the persistence of the ritual shows the importance of the dogma in our ancestral religion. We are all suckled in creeds outworn when we are grown up we repeat our catechisms, ancient and modern, with equal Our minds are fervour and equal ignorance of the meaning. swayed by nursery tales, and we ever find it necessary to dash past dark places to escape bogies of the mind. Our bard, to keep up his spirits, sings aloud In the hands of my Lord I will dress to-day a sneeze I hear, it will not hurt me, I will not believe it. I will dress me seemly well / will not believe an omen, because it is not certain; He who created me will sustain me.' 82-3-7. Later he tries to rationalize on the subject, for he reflects that where there is a But it is safe to assume that nose there will be sneezing, 83-5.
