Usage notes

In addition to its use as a regular noun meaning "part" or "portion", cuid is used with non-inalienable mass nouns and plural count nouns as a kind of measure word after a possessive pronoun or before a genitive.

  1. mo chuid leabhar – "my books" (lit. "my portion of books")
  2. cuid éadaigh Sheáin – "Seán's clothing" (lit. "Seán's portion of clothing")

It is not used with inalienable nouns like relatives and body parts:

  1. deartháireacha an bhuachalla – "The boy's brothers" (not *cuid deartháireacha an bhuachalla)
  2. mo ghruaig – "my hair" (not *mo chuid gruaige)
