Abstract: We look at the class which contains those transcendental meromorphic functions for which the finite singularities of are in a bounded set and prove that, if belongs to , then there are no components of the set of normality in which as . We then consider the class which contains those functions in for which the forward orbits of the singularities of stay away from the Julia set and show (a) that there is a bounded set containing the finite singularities of all the functions and (b) that, for points in the Julia set of , the derivatives have exponential-type growth. This justifies the assertion that is a class of *hyperbolic* functions.
