Abstract (cited)
[FR] Encore le gaulois siöxt=i.
L'auteur analyse le rapport traditionnel entre gaul. sioxti et viri, siächt et le trouve déficient aux niveaux phonologique et sémantique. A la place il propose une nouvelle interprétation basée sur la racine *seg- «attacher, toucher». Il en profite aussi pour corriger une erreur dans son ancienne analyse syntactique de l'inscription où se trouvait la forme sioxti.

[EN] The author examines the traditional equation of Gaul, sioxti OIr. si cht and finds it wanting, both on phonological and semantic grounds. In its place, he proposes a new interpretation founded on the base *seg- attach, touch’. He also takes the opportunity to correct an error in his previous syntactic analysis of the inscription in which the form sioxti occurs.
