geáp
glosses cornas, Wrt. Voc. i. 287, 39 : ii. 16, 76. [Sievers, Angl. xiii. 325, would read coruas=curuas; but the list of words in which the first example occurs contains no other instance of an adjective, and the second example occurs among a group of words very similar to that in which the first is found: so that cornas seems meant for a noun. Perhaps geáp might be the same form as in earn-geáp; or could it be connected with Icel. gaupa a lynx ?]
