dc.description.abstract The following poem consists of a brief discussion of conjugated fonns of the copula and infixed pronouns (both of which are termed sealbhadh by the bardic grammarians) and their effects on subsequent radical consonants. On the whole, this amounts to a treatment of nasalisatiol(1). ' The poem is of interest for several reasons. It stands as one of very few extant examples of educational or mnemonic verse emanating from the bardic schools.(2) The order in which the consonants are dealt with, that of the Ogam alphabet (beirhe luis Ilion), with one exception, attests to the pervasiveness of that system in the schools.(3) The anonymous author's comments on the pronunciation of nasalised r are also of interest.(4) en_US
