This voice is conjugated in the modern mode, by prefixing the auxiliary verb to the participle, thus — biḋ me meallta, I am deceived ; and so throughout. It is therefore expedient to confine the conjugation here to the antient mode.
mealltar, be deceived

Infinitive Mood and Participles
do or a ḃeiṫ meallta, to be deceived
The negative and interrogative particles are the same in both voices. The negative particle of the present and future tenses indicative is ni, and of the past tense, nir, iar, or nior,; in the imperative mood it is na. The interrogative of the indicative present and future is a, an, or naċ; and of the past tense ar, naċar, or nar. The influences of these particles on aspiration shall be noticed hereafter.
The following particles are signs of the potential mood — ba, ma if, go until, mur unless. Go and gur, followed by buḋ or fa, form the optative sign; as go, or gur fa, or ḃiḋ, meallta ḃeiḋir may you be deceived.
Affirmative particles are mar as, gur, go, do, that; a who—do and a are also signs of the infinitve mood.
