Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the tillage-plot of the penny

    Léiriú breá é 1659 ‘Kappanapingganny’ ar bhunfhoirm Ghaeilge an logainm. Bheifí ag súil leis an gcoimriú ó 1659 ‘-pingganny’ go 1755 ‘-pinne’, 1774 ‘-pinny’, 1838 ‘-pinnia’, ach díol suntais a dhéanaí is atá 1824 ‘Cappinapinnany’ TAB le fáil.

    Maidir leis na foirmeacha déanacha in -n, is é is dóichí ná gur tháinig deireadh an logainm bhéarlaithe faoi thionchar an fhocail Bhéarla pinion sa 19ú haois.
