Eska (Joseph F.): Where have all the object pronouns gone? The growth of object agreement in earlier Celtic.
In ZCP 57 (2009–2010), pp. 25–47.
Argues that the Old Irish morphemes traditionally regarded as infixed and suffixed object pronouns are instead markers of object agreement.

Fortson (Benjamin W.): On ‘double-nasal’ presents in Celtic and Indo-European and a new Irish sound law.
In ZCP 57 (2009–2010), pp. 48–78.
Proposes an alternative explanation for the origin of the Old Irish set of verbs ending in -e(i)nnid/-einn in the present (such as ro·geinn, do·greinn, etc.), rejecting K. McCone's derivation of this verb type from PIE ‘double nasal’ presents (in FS Watkins, pp. 465-476) and arguing instead that -nn- is the regular outcome of *-nd- when it was flanked by non-low front vowels.

Mac Eoin (Gearóid): The provenance of the Book of Leinster.
In ZCP 57 (2009–2010), pp. 79–96.
Investigates the compilation of LL, focusing on the identity of bishop Find of Kildare and on the claim by Aed mac Crimthainn to the title of comarba Coluim, and argues in favour of Kildare as the place where it was produced.

Schmidt (Jürgen): Die Irischen Weltannalen und Beda.
In ZCP 57 (2009–2010), pp. 113–123.
Criticism of D. P. McCarthy's theory (in Peritia 12 (1998), pp. 98-152) that the Irish world annals (in particular the pre-Patrician section of the Annals of Tigernach) and Bede’s Chronica maiora have a common origin in a world chronicle by Rufinus of Aquileia.

Stüber (Karin): Mit cen ,ohne‘ negierte Komplemente im Altirischen.
In ZCP 57 (2009–2010), pp. 124–140.
Examines the adverbial use of phrases introduced by cen, and argues that the conditional value gave rise to the function of cen-phrases as complement clauses after evaluative predicates, subsequently spreading to other types of predicates.

Uhlich (Jürgen): Altirisch arae ‚Wagenlenker‘, aithesc ‚Antwort‘, keltische Präverbien auf *-i und die frühe Apokope von *-i.
In ZCP 57 (2009–2010), pp. 141–160.
On the auslaut of the Proto-Irish form of Celtic preverbs originally ending in *-i, with special reference to OIr. a(i)r- and a(i)th-. Includes a criticism of P. Schrijver's revision (in Ériu 45 (1995), pp. 151-189) of K. McCone's early apocope of *-i.

Zimmer (Stefan): Irish úaine, French oignon ‘onion’.
In ZCP 57 (2009–2010), pp. 173–176.
