io, npr. m, with long ā and slender r, not to be confused with Darae of different origin. It rhymes with gáire, CRR 6. 1 ; with báire, LL 158 a 24 : sáiset a mbáre dia brath: co tarb nDaire meic Fiachrach; with áine, ZCP iii 41 st 1 ; with cnámi, ib. 43 st 13 ; with náire, Metr. Dinds. iii 134. 12 ; with sále, Men. 24. 22 . There is no genuine npr. Daire with short a. Dáire went early out of use as a npr. In late MSS it is usually written Daire with un- accented a. Where Daire occurs in verse in connection with a npr. rhyming with a short syllable, it is the n.l. Daire, as MacCarthy 430 st 3 : Domnall Daire (: bladaide). The writing Dare is sometimes ambiguous as it may render Darae as well as Dáire. Dáire is the right form for the following npr.

Forms: leth, leith, leithe, leithe, lethe, leithi, lethe, -leithe, leath, leithdeimhin, lethshathach

n o and s, n. Freq. treated as two words, l. o, n. half and l. s, n. side (e.g. GOI, Críth Gabl., BDD). But it is in some contexts difficult to decide between the two meanings, and cf. d s. leth (side), Ml. 51d3 , 128a1 ( leith, 62b13 ), d s. leith (half), Sg. 18a4 (but see note in Thes.), leuth, BCr. 3c , SR 8041 ; g du. leithe, Sg. 25b6 is ambiguous in meaning, and with lethe, Fél. Dec. 4 may belong to the by-form leithe, which latter. however, is more reliably attested in meaning side than in meaning half: a s. lethe, Imr. Brain 49 , leithi, TBC-I¹ 525. d s. lethe (MS.), Críth G. 428 , Grail 2004 . -leithe, Ir. Astr. Tr. 8.27 .

In later lang. more usual in meaning half (for meaning side cf. taeb) except in adv. and prep. phrases, in which both meanings are frequent. leath m., IGT Decl. § 31. f. , § 39 .
