[From Manx Soc vol 2, Kelly's Manx Grammar]
OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF CONJUNCTIONS.
Edyr, whether, or either, is answered by ny, or: as edyr eh ve dooinney ny ben, whether it be man or woman.
As, and, cre, what, myr, also, &c., effect no change in the initials.
Ny is often set before nouns adjective of the English comparative degree,--that is, in Manks, when two subjects are immediately compared the one to the other, and is answered by na, than: as ta'n airh ny strimmey na'n argid, the gold is heavier than the silver.
