Forms: taidbrid, taidhbhred, taidbred, tedbarthae

Analysis doubtful. The forms in Wb. and Ml. indicate *to-ad-uss-ber- (see Strachan, Paradigms and Glosses), but the later forms and vn. may orig. belong to *to-ad-fíri (see ad-fíri). Later as simple vb. taidbrid. displays, shows, applies, brings forward, offers: gl. exhibere, Wb. 3b11 ; adhibere, Ml. 23a4 , 123c4 . dofeith in slúag tar muir glan, | don tír donaidbri imram 'to the land which rowing reveals', Imr. Brain § 17 , Celtica xx 181 . ni tidbarid far mbaullu i n-irgail gl. neque exhibeatis membra vestra, Wb. 3b11 . amal du-n-edbarar dethiden ícce du neuch as care of healing is applied to anyone, Ml. 123c4 . dofeith in slúag tar muir glan, | don tír donaidbri imram puts forth rowing, plies its course (?), Imr.

The follg. cases are doubtful: fé frisin fiacail! noch ní taidber nī dosom is eslind det-siu (said to MacCon, who has been bitten by Ailill: it does not bring him aught, i.e. does not affect him, but is danger to thee?), Fianaig. 36 . taidbret bí (chev.), SR 749 . taidbrit bī, 7731 .
