Examining linguistic layers in the St. Gall glosses, again

The St. Gall Priscian glosses present a well-known puzzle for scholars interested in the language and composition of the corpus. While we know that the glosses were copied, closer examination reveals that they were copied from a variety of sources of different ages. That is, some forms are older, while others are younger. Given the compilatory nature of glossing, it is impossible to find sections of text that are more or less archaic. The sections of text would have to be so small that they would consist of individual glosses scattered through the whole corpus. Thus far, no one has been able to suggest any way around this problem.

Wegen eines unerwarteten, durch ein infigiertes Pronomen signalisierten Wechsels zu direkter Rede verdient die alte Interpretation von TBC I, 659-61, insbesondere die Verbalform condam bennachtaís, erneute Aufmerksamkeit. Dieser Beitrag untersucht sowohl den Wechsel zu direkter Rede als auch die Form infigierter Pronomina nach der Konjunktion con, um eine neue Interpretation dieser Passage, derer Übersetzung bisher als unproblematisch galt, anzubieten.

The Cowgill particle, preverbal ceta ‘first’, and prepositional cleft sentences in the Old Irish Glosses

The origin of the absolute/conjunct distinction in the Insular Celtic languages has generated more literature than any other phenomenon in the history of the languages. The theory currently enjoying the greatest regard, generally dubbed the “particle theory”, asserts that a second-position clitic particle, the “Cowgill particle”, was inserted in most sentences and is ultimately responsible for the variety of verbal endings, as well as numerous other phenomena, such as mutations or the lack thereof. 1 In the spirit of the particle theory, one can offer the following simplified derivations for the absolute/conjunct distinction (where E stands for the enclitic Cowgill particle):
