2 forbaid n i, (< for + fid `an over-letter' according to KM,
Wortk. § 214 ; but from that we should expect *forbud,
80and cf. forfid `diphthong'). The occasional spelling forpaid
(p = bb) in YBL, e.g. Auraic. 3648 , 3655 supports the deri-
vation for + buith (vn. of biid). Cf. forbbaid. As gramm.
term a letter placed above the vowel of a monosyllable in
Ogham to denote quantity , see ZCP xvii 298 ff . There were
85three `forbaide': forsail, expressed by `s' (i.e. síniud)
signifying `long quantity'; arnin (`for n') expressed by
`n' signifying that the latter at the end of the syllable
is doubled, giving medium quantity to the preceding vowel
(length by position), dínin dísail (`not n and not s'), signify-
ing short quantity, expressed by `d': f. ¤ dno .i. aiccentus

length over a short

45strict meaning appears to be keeping a hostile outlook or
watch (on a person or place), spending the night in camp
(against a foe), passing into that of beleaguering, laying
siege (with FOR of obj.): boí dano Eochaid .ix. mbliadna
