prep., leniting, with accus. and dat. See GOI § 823 , Pedersen Vgl. Gr. ii 150 , Frazer, ZCP viii 5 , Williams, Celtica ii 305 ; IGT Introd. § 130 .

Usually spelt ar. air, Ml. 51c2 , 2d2 ; er, 122a16 , BB 449a10 ; eir, Ériu iv 180 § 39 . The spellings air, er, etc. (more freq. in later lang.) and the modern pronunciation show that O. Ir. ar as simple prep.was replaced by a conflation of airi and fo(i)r (3 s. n. of 1 ar and 1 for).

In Mid. Ir. 1 for and 1 íar are frequently spelt ar. See III, IV below and the articles on these words.

GOI § 437 also gives airiut, aurut without reff. as `old forms which occur only in later sources' ( p. 272 ). 3 s. m. and n. GOI § 437 gives airiu as the dat. form (cf. airiu, O'Dav. 22 ?), airi as the accus. airi is the usual form passim in the early language. Cf. áiri, Wb. 11b21 . f.

In later lang. all pronominal forms influenced by those of for, giving or(u)m, or(u)t, air, uirre (uirthe), orainn (oirn. oirinn, O'Gr. Cat. 556.25 ), oraib ( oirb, BColm. 100.3 ), orru (orra, orrtha), etc.

The presumed distinction between ar with accus. when motion is implied and with dat. when no motion is implied ( Zeuss 622 ; with reservations Vendryes Gramm. § 283 ; see also Pedersen Vgl. Gr. ii 73 - 74 , Williams loc. cit.) appears most clearly in the stereotyped phrases ar chenn towards, ar chiunn ahead of, before (see 1 cenn): ar beolu towards, ar bélaib before, in front of (see bél). The dat. is usual in ar cach láu daily (see ) and in ar thosuch ( Sg. 203a7 , see tosach). Usage is less clear outside fixed phrases, and that of the various collections of O. Ir. glosses differs (the available material is also much reduced by the frequent identity of form of a s. and d s. of nouns). The accus. is regular in Wb. in senses of taking away from and counting as , and also in glosses on Lat. ob, the dat. where the meaning is with regard to, instead of and in glosses on Lat. super. Both cases are found where the meaning is for the sake of, because of . In Ml. accus. is constant only in set phrases. The dat. is usual in meaning counts as , do-beir ar (for?) calls and in glosses on Lat. dat. without preposition (ar gentib gl. gentibus, 78a12 , 89c2 ) and where a Lat. compd. noun is treated as two words (arintinmlegun gl. promulgatione, 71c18 ). In general use the meanings saving from, instead of, in meaning of, in return for, on account of, because of, for the sake of, for the purpose of are all found both with accus. and dat. In Sg. the meanings instead of and on account of are found with both cases. See also IGT Introd. § 130 , Bard. Synt. Tr. 2 - 4 , 17 , 20 (where detailed rules are given for accus. and dat. both with simple ar and for compd. preps. such as ar aghaidh, etc.).

I

(a) Much less freq. in concrete or physical meanings than in more abstract ones. Perh. before, in front of in (case of follg. noun not certain): dá [n]dorus [n-]and, comla[e] ar ala n-aí, clíath ar alailiu (-e, MS.) `in front of' (Gloss.), Críth G. 100 . ar Tuatha Dé Danann `before the T.D.D.', Ériu xii 152 § 15 (TE). cethridoruis airri (recte airre) im-mach, SR 405 . ó beit fíanna fer nÉrenn ┐ Alban do Chonaire ar thig, BDD² 1416 .

Acc. to Binchy, SCano p. 33 , frequent in meaning east of, the only example cited being: acon loch ar Mag Aí `by the lake east of Mag Aí', Death-tales of the Ulster heroes 32 § 2 (`on'). Cf.

Perh. orig. with concrete force also in: do té(i)t aitire ar ḟer feras in fuil, Críth G. 52 `goes surety for', Gloss. Concrete meaning is perh. also to be assumed in the phrases agaid ar (late, orig. for?), ar agaid, ar amus, ar beolu, ar bélaib, bél ar bél, ar chenn, ar chiunn, ar dorus, ar dreich, ar fed, ar gnúis, ar leth, ar medón, ar ṡúil, ar thosuch, ar thús, ar úairib. See under the nouns concerned. With more abstract force in ar aí, ar apu (see 3 aí, 1 apa). Here may also be included: doire acummisc arúir `of their being mixed with mould', Wb. 13d3 . úachtar ar lemlacht dó mixed with, Críth G. 63 . loim midc do chumasc ar usciu `to mix a sip of whey with water', Mon.

Rarely of time. See ariu before .

(b) In the follg. exx. the meaning is also more or less concr., though the precise meaning of the prep.is obscure, and it would be possible to consider them as early exx. of the replacing of for by ar (see III, and fo-ceird III): arnarala for cubus áiri, Wb. 11b21 (see note). Cf. focheird mo menma airi `my mind is set on him', Ériu ii 92 § 2 . ón lá tarrla ar n-airi air, iv 220.27 . torala dia archeill do degnimu su `let God bring to mind thy good deeds', Ml. 43b15 . iscor lame ardodced buith ocairbiathad sainte gl. nam qui volunt divites f[i]eri, incidunt in temptationem, Wb. 29b18 . ?

Forms: dílmainiu, dílmain

adj i (dí + loman leash, O'Rahilly, SGS ii 17 ff . q.v.).

The primary meaning appears to be free from restraint (?), without attachment ; hence

(a) applied to actions, that which is free, permissbile, without hindrance or penalty , and

(b) of agent or instrument free (to act), unhampered . The connexion is shown in Wb. 14a24 where d.¤ glosses vacuum in veniet cum ei vacuum fuerit = when it will be free to him to do so = in tan bus d.¤ dó; and BCr. 32c3 where indilmainiu = expeditius (aliis aptius multo et expeditius videtur ut computatio . . . incipiat).

(a) is diliu lem aní as torbae oldaas aní as d.¤ (= omnia licent sed non omnia expediunt), Wb. 11b17 . is d.¤ la cách ar n-orcunni everyone thinks himself free to slay us, 4b23 . dilmuin cach anfot, Laws ii 25 . is d.¤ (gl. licet), Sg. 210b3 ; 163b4 (dílmin). is d.¤ dom it is free to me (to), I am at liberty (to . . .), it is lawful for me, I may with impunity: ba nd.¤ dossom airbert biuth do thorud a precepte , Wb. 10d14 . ba ndilmain do, Études Celt. xl 67 ( Ml. 54c18 ). RC ii 392 . Trip. 208 . BB 239b33 . 3 B 23, 81b . Anecd. iii 23 . Laws ii 72 . Without gram. subj., Laws ii 82 . With DE: Balur roba d.¤ de | rochum raith . . . mBresi (`it was worthy of him', O'Curry; it was within his pleasure?), MS. Mat. 578 (poem quoted by Mac Firbis).

Hence attrib. just, lawful: messair d.¤ `legitimate measure', Tec. Corm. § 3.39 (where however meaning may approach (b), the idea being the opposite of that expressed in `loaded dice'). Cf. also Hib. Min. 438 (text doubtful). dilmuin .i. dilis (lawful?), O'Dav. 605 , 725 . O'Cl. Possibly also fo d.¤ , Acall. 3244 (= as their fair share?).

(b) free from obstacles, unimpeded, unattached: gl. expeditum (= free for action, of a pers., used to explain accinctus ), Ml. 81b7 . Cf. Wb. 14a24 and BCr. 32c3 . Corm. Y 477 . Of things: Fél. p. 200 ( Fél. Sept. 4 ). ní chuirfea ind es nó a n-abaind he ara ticfa d.¤ without a catch (of a fish-hook), Acall. 7272 . Of persons: ro[s] leicset (so corrected by W.

Forms: etim, eataim, aitim, etim

n f. (earlier n, n. ? *ess-dithaim ?) etim, eataim, aitim , IGT, Decl. § 13 . The primary meaning is uncertain; Meyer's analysis ( Wortk. 134 ) is wrong, as the initial is short and the following cons. voiceless ( etim: etill IGT, Decl. ex. 636 . Cf. Bürgschaft p. 12 ).

I Spring, leap (?); thrust (?): rucsat da eitim edtroma fírluatha i certcomdail a chele, MR 266.15 . Cf. do rug sí eitim is sceinnim, ITS iii1 146x . As vn.: bui dibergach...oc eitim ┐ oc ingreim ar P., Acall. 4049 .

II Chance, opportunity; breach (?): eitim .i. báoghal, O'Cl. ? cach aigni a etaim, ZCP xvii 50 § 19 , Celtica xi 24 . Usually with vb. of reaching or seizing: tancatar ┐ rusc mor leo do gabail etma for B., ┐ dia doerad iarsein mani hetar im imda acce to take B. by surprise (?) Thes. ii 332 z = Lism.

Rev. iv 208.21 . Cf. eo gan eitim `salmon unfailing' [never off guard?] Ó Bruad. iii 150 .

III In Laws applied to a species of pledge , apparently in a transferred sense; the most explicit ex. recorded is: etaim .i. gell do thuit ar eit do buith i tir comaithig a pledge which is forfeited (?) for cattle being on a neighbour's land O'Mulc. 467 . ettim ebraice robustoria (?), ar is ar niurt berair ib. diles cach n-etaim acht diroth cach techta iar re ┐ aputh, ZCP xiii 23 y (see Bürgschaft p. 12 ). leath gacha hathgabala ina hindligedh athgabála...┐ ní tét etuim (.i. smacht) tar cúic bú do tuaith, Laws i 270.8 . ni [leg. in ?] mug...ni gaibther an-aetaim fri dlighidh...he, acht cos i nglais, 104 y (with gl.: noca gabur a netmanughadh neich eile fris..., 106.12 ). ni bi eataim iar fiachuib .i. nocha bi smacht roairde gotha no roísle gotha dona feichemnaib na orra iar cindiud a fiach, O'Curry 1871 (= ataim 2281 ). i tuillem do febe .i. etuim slóigidh, O'D. 72 (< H 3. 17, col. 62 = Laws i 162.11 Comm. ). mad cona n-etmannaib .i. ma methaid ni dinn reir ┐ dind aurdligid .i. cona dilsi don flaith .i. narup gat na aurrach `mit ihren Verschul- dungen' ZCP xvi 206 (= O'Curry 828 < H 3.18, 380a ). In these passages et(a)im evidently is used of the act for which a certain fine was due.

Cf. cach aigni a étaim `to every pleader his decision' ZCP xvii 50 § 19 . étaim .i. cinne[d] ut est etaim dligid .i. in cinned ata do réir dligid ar na haighnidi, O'Dav. 783 .
