Forms: furmiuda, furmid, fuirmid, fuirmighi, furmedha, fuirmeadh

n u, o, m. (vn. of fo-ruimi) The m is occasionally shown lenited ; O'Cl. distinguishes between fuirmeadh .i. toirneamh ; fuirmeadh .i. foreimniughad no siubhal, and fuirmheadh .i. cur (see below) but there is no reason to doubt that all these represent the same word.

See furmada.

(b) transf. of inflicting, imposing (a punishment, obligation, etc.) : co f.¤ na sraigell ... foraib plying the scourges on them FA 30 (LB), where local sense is still implicit ; cf. la furmed in mátan fair belaying him with the cudgel LU 8546 ( FB 40 ). co f.¤ in rechtasa Adamnáin imposition FA 32 (LB).

(f) in gramm. name given to a subst. preceded by the prep. oc (probably an extension of sense a) : oc fir a furmiud `depositive' Auraic 1521 . oc feraib a fhuirmed ilair, 1776 .

(g) in gramm. the ordinary application or use of a word, oppd. to `inde' its etymological or inherent sense : f.¤ foucal, Auraic. 3393 (e.g. the Lat. word lapis, analysed as id quod laedit pedem [cf.
