Thread Name: What's a Planxty?
Subject: RE: What's a Planxty?
Bhal, a Néill,

"Plancadh" Ó Dónaill lch 955 = "a beating / trouncing"

Three questions:

1. Whence came the intrusive "s" and "t" ?

2. More fundamentally why the Gen. Sg. Form "plancaidh" ?

3. Would you not expect the form "plancadh theach X" ?


N.B Tell your parents I send my regards.
