Inflection[edit]

The gender and declension class are unclear in Old Irish. It was possibly a masculine o-stem as in Latin, while in the later language it is a feminine ī-stem.

The only attested inflected form in Old Irish is accusative plural abissiu, which points to a masculine io-stem, but then the nominative singular would be *abisse.

Descendants[edit]

  • Irish: aibhéis (possibly or partially)

Mutation[edit]
