Excerpt from Transactions of the Philological Society, 1895-8
In the Saltaz'r the complicated verbal system found in the Old Irish Glosses is, on the whole, well preserved. Some old things have been lost, and some new things now appear, but the great bulk of the changes that ... the Irish verb has undergone are subsequent to this period. I do not propose here to enter into a detailed comparison of the language of the Saltair with that of earlier documents. My collections from the Glosses and other old texts are as yet too incomplete to permit of that, and with incomplete collections there is always the risk of branding as late some form which is in reality much earlier. But one or two points may be noted without much hazard of error.
