Old Irish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

After Witczak, from Proto-Celtic *eɸros (boar), from Proto-Indo-European *(h₁)epros (boar), with the n- arising from rebracketing of the demonstrative-final n in accusative *ton eɸron, i.e. overgeneralisation of the nasal mutation.[1] Cognate with Proto-Germanic *eburaz, Latin aper, and (with a prefix) Proto-Slavic *veprь. Witczak rejects Pokorny's derivation from Proto-Celtic *nero- (hero), from Proto-Indo-European *h₂nḗr (man, male).

Usage notes[edit]

The forms ned and ner are often, but not always, interchangeable. The form ned is more formal and is especially found in compounds of more formal nature, whereas ner is more common as a word on its own. For instance the formal word nedlägga (to discontinue, shut down) vs. its informal equivalent lägga ner. Some compounds can use either form, e.g. nedladdning (download) (more formal) or nerladdning (less formal). Some compounds only use ned, e.g. nedlåtande (condescending).

In a few compounds, the otherwise archaic form neder is used, e.g. nederbörd (precipitation) or nedervåning (ground floor).
