This sense has been inferred from the following passages: Dia fadein dobeir datha ┐ gráda ardḟlatha, LL 149 b 29 . la cessad Secundi co slógud cech datha, Fél. Nov. 15 . It may also be sought in such passages as `a Domnaill na ndath' BB 50 a 35 , or `a éicsiu datha,' Metr. Dinds. ii 48. 38 , see III above. According to the Cáin-law of fosterage ( Laws ii 146 sq. ) the colour of the clothes varied according to rank and dignity: fo miad cháich éitid a mic ótha fer miudbu co ríg ( ii 146. 10 ). Satin and scarlet were prescribed for the son of the king of Erin ( sroll ┐ scarloit do mac ríg Érenn, ib. 146. 16 ), black, yellowish, grey, and blay clothes for maic na ngrád féne ( 148. 3 ).

prep. with acc. For etymology see Thurneysen, GOI § 839 , Fraser ZCP viii 37 , J. E. C. Williams, Celtica iii 126 . In later spelling prefixes h- to following initial stressed vowel; does not leníte following consonant (cf. frinna aill, Sg. 45a16 . fri nnach ..., Ml. 75a9 , fri nnech 23c20 ; but fri nech further on in same gloss and regularly elsewhere); the initial s- of the article following fri is preserved. In Middle Irish gradually replaced by the forms RI, RE (already in Ml: oc eregim re Abisolon, 44b4 , cf. fre, 90c27 ); RA (common in some LL texts, see CRR 54 , TBC-LL¹ 499 , 602 , 740 , etc.); rarely RO ( SR 1990 ZCP xiii 204 15 ); FRIA, RIA, RE also common. Hence in Early Mod. Ir. there is occasionally confusion with , RÍA `before', see Bergin's note Stor. Keat. p. xix , and section IX (e) below. Apart from this the latter prep. sometimes replaces FRI after fáilid, fáilte and kindred words (as in Mod. Ir.). On the parallelism of some of the pronominal forms of FRI with those of LA see GOI l.c. (with Translator's n. 178 ). Though FRI still appears in some later texts, especially those of the archaising type, it had become obsolete in the classical language. Its later form (RI, RE) remains down to the end of the Early Mod. period and is recognized by the grammarians as distinct from LE (LA), see IGT, Introd. § 75 , 24 P 8, 194 ( IGT VI , Bard. Synt. Tr. p. 7 ). In the modern spoken lang. it is replaced partly by LE, partly by CHUN (O.-Ir. dochum). For a contrary development cf. Engl. `with,' originally `against,' which has absorbed the functions of A.S. mid `(together) with.'

In development of meaning generally FRI shows a remarkable parallelism with Engl. ` with '; it also agrees with ` against ' in several senses.

In the Early Mod. Grammatical Tracts the forms given are: riom, rum; riot, rut; ris; ria; rinn, ruinn; ribh, ruibh; riú, r, 24 P 8 194 ( Bard. Synt. Tr. p. 7 ).

With following poss. pron.: frim, frit, fria, friar, fribar, fria, e.g. frim ort. Wb. 29d2 . frim peccad, 28a14 . frim foraithmet, Ml. 23d9 ; ram anmain, TBC-LL¹ 3692 (rem St.). frit adrad su, Ml. 136c11 . frit c[h]ele, 70d2 ; frit laim, SR 5854 . rit láim, TBC-LL¹ 3055 . rat láma, 3052 . rot chlaind, SR 2031 . friar corp, Wb. 15c22 . friar fochric, 33a9 ; fribar n-ícc, Wb. 24b3 . fribar pecthu, 13b19 ; fria mbriathra, Wb. 31b30 . In Mid. Ir. the form `fria' is often used for the simple prep., hence occas. fria a = prep. + 3 s. pron. In Early Mod. Ir. 3 s. and pl. form re-na sometimes appears: rena ardnaem, BCC § 12 (see III c below). fria n-a, Fl. Earls 214.4 . Cf. the n- prefixed to poss. after le, ó, tre in Mod. Irish.

With rel. pron.: O. Ir. fris(s)a n ...; Mid. Ir. also frisi-, risi-, fris-, ris-: frismbiat, Sg. 202b3 . fris-mbruchta, Fél. June 21 . fris n-agar, E. 406 . fris-reith, Prolegomena 302 . fris-tarddam, Thes. ii 293.19 . risa n-abar, Acall. 53 , etc. With cop. frisin-, frisnid, risnad ail, LB 257b9 . ris na duthracht 256a44 . fria ndechraiged (= frisa nd.) Sg. 28a14 may be a mistake. In later MSS. the form re n- becomes common: fria-cosmailend, PH 7674 . re ndubairt, 7464 . ra-n-adh KMMisc. 156. 124 . re n-abar, Acall. 1241 , etc. re rāiter, Ériu viii 139.4 . ré raibhe, Keat. ii 4467 , etc.

In Glosses fri is often used in compos. with a vb. to represent Lat. ob-. Later frith- is used before cons. with or without lenition of following cons.: see frithgnam, frithsét, etc.

(b) In deuterotonic verbal forms fris-; before an infixed pron. in rel. construction frith- or friss-: fritum-chomart-sa (= frith-dum-) Wb. 33a12 ; but friss-idn-oirctis, Ml. 39a20 (see Pedersen Vgl. Gr. ii 147 and cf. Strachan's OIPG⁴ ed. Bergin, p. 27 n. 2 ).

See also phrases s.v. agad, ais, enech, gnúis, sáil, taeb, ucht.

This use is regular in Old-Ir. in stating relative position: fri Grecia aniar ... fri Etáil anáir west of Greece ... east of Italy Wb. 6d17 . fri Alpai ndesiu (gl. cisalpina) Sg. 217b8 . frie anall ... frie desiu (gl. ultra ... citra) 71b1 , 2 . fri Ath F.D. desiu, TBC-I¹ 2183 . frie anechtair outside it Ml. 40c15 . fri Pardus amuich outside Paradise SR 111 . ra chuala sa fri hEmain andess I heard it (as I was) to the south of Emain LU 5056 . altoir fri dorus antuaid, SR 4261 [cf. la taeb ind rigthaige aniar, LL 3810 (30a) ]. a mmag fris anair the plain in front of him LL 122a33 . co ndechaid [in gai] triana chend ┐ co ro marb nónbur ris aníar behind him 121a21 . frit aniar, LU 4134 . is e a chorp in taitneamach rit anall the shining one opposite thee RC xxiv 60 . Also fig. : foscichret i crandchor ... fáicebthair Lugaid fris anechtair they will cast lots for it... L. will be left out of the chance RC xiii 444x ( LL 289b8 ). See also s.v. lám (fri l.).

It is doubtful whether: i mbae neach fri hopair immuig BB 362a21 (= Dinds. 20 ) is an instance of this construction; the literal meaning here is was anyone at a work outside ? The Rennes `amuig' is perhaps merely a late spelling.

After verb or vn.: tan turcbad E. a di láim fri Coimdid nime, SR 5085 . suidig do da laim fri ... clasp thy hands (in prayer) to ... 1606 . rosecroth a chend frisin slúag brandished his (severed) head at the host LU 5269 . crothad in chind frisin slóg, 5280 . donnochtat a mbruinni fris bared their bosoms to him 5199 . rochoraig fri tenid he arranged [them] before the fire RC xiii 6.21 . roscóraig gnúis fri gnúis (see gnúis) LU 2046 ( FA 12 ).

Cf. conocbath in carpat fris ... ┐ concligtis ind h[e]ich fris the chariot would tilt up before him and the horses would spring at him Ériu vi 134.21 . bēim a cinn fri cloich, Ml. 139c3 . beim cind fri hall, LL 225b38 (see benaid). esarcain cind fri hallib, 176b33 . aiges (feras) in tond frisin mbruach, Anecd. i 12.19 (21) . cf.

In this sense with verbs of joining, connecting, also occasionally with verbs of motion and in nominal phrases, such as imma llé fri, immaróen fri, see s.v. , óen (cf. Ériu xiv 142 n . ) also cos, taeb.

In: crithnaigset ... immar bocsimin fri sruth the meaning of the prep. is doubtful. curtar a fuigill re sruth ┐ re fairgi `be the remnant cast out to be carried off by the sea-tide' O'Gr. Cat. 182w . Cf. perhaps: Drochet Atha do dhul re sruth `D. was carried away by the flood' ALC i 260.7 , though these may be exx. of the confusion of re (FRI) with le (LA). curcas fri sruth, FB 44 ; `against a stream' Strachan ZCP iii 419 . Cf. Ériu i 194.4 . See 1 téit and la I (d).

Passing into sense in addition to: tris fer friu (gl. te tertium) Sg. 2a5 . cethri chet bliadan ... a noe sechtmogat fri sein, Rawl. 68b31 ( ZCP iii 18 ).

In this sense perhaps in: fót fri haltóir, see 1 fót (d). pars de feoil fri foimtin terci as a precaution against scarcity Mon. Tall. § 12 . Here perhaps: dognith Saul intleda ... fri Duaid used to lay snares against D. Ml. 30a3 . techt do Roim ... fri foglaim n-ecnai, Trip.² 241 . roairis re sloind senchasa he remained to relate Ériu iv 152.6 [or remained relating ? See VI (a)]. cid frisi farcbad int id for what end the withe was left LU 4752 (= cid imma ndernad int id, TBC-LL¹ 597 ). cid frisindrolais in cloich why hast thou thrown the stone ? LU 5092 . o tancamair friss `since we have come for it' ( = for that purpose) Fél. 72.24 (cf. inní imo tainic ib. 30 ). co ndernur inní fris tánac LU 4347 .

The follg. perhaps are elliptical: the idea represented is anticipating, forestalling: dogniad pars de feoil fre terci do t[h]ecmong = as a provision against the occurrence of scarcity Mon. Tall. § 12 . do na .u. gaiscedaib dec no bitís ... hi tegluch C. fri maidm n-airm no fri gabáil ngasced do neoch LU 5046 . Cf. Fél. Nov. 14 cited VI b.

Forms: lepa, dental, leabaidh, leaba, leapthadh

n i, f. (leth + buith, Greene, Celtica ii 337 f. but see Éigse vii 260-61 ). Later also lepa with dental inflexion. In Mod. Ir. with pl. in -ach(a). leabaidh f., IGT Decl. § 189 , leaba f., § 4 (dental stem) (in both with g p. leapthadh, a form not attested by exx. for this word). Pl. in -ach(a) also recognised in IGT Decl. § 189 with the reservation .c. do chanamhain.

I In Laws as technical term harbourage, house-room (l.¤ is a very common metaphor for `protection', Críth G. p. 71 ): caide leabaid. Tír, teach, teine (i.e. sharing or being allowed to share another's land, house and fire), O'Curry 347 ( H 3.18, 192a ). l.¤ daltu, comaltu, fiur, mnaí . . . he is entitled to harbour his fosterson . . . , Críth G. 340 . mani dernat co cenn mís dotíagat for cairdde ná[d]lenat a lepthai cucai anall that the fines for harbouring them may not adhere to him, 362 . niss len lebaid ni hi (leg. indí) tossaig i n-aurlise i.e. they are not bound to shelter one who reaches their precinct(?), Ériu xvi 180 § 16 . mac huar . . . co n-oponar a lepaith ┐ a apuith, O'Curry 57 ( H 3.18, 20b ), `i.e. a son in respect of whom his father has given notice that he is not to be sheltered', Plummer MS. notes. See ZCP xiii 23.13 . apa sceo leaba faonan comlaithe (?-thre) coir, O'Curry 2531 ( Eg. 88, 44a ) (`? "apa and "leba" alike constitute complicity', Plummer MS. notes). lepuidh lethe la cocur. Cumal ┐ leth in cinad for lepuidh fini, cid for lepuidh anfini isin mbiathadh iar ndénum cinad i cain, ┐ leth in cinad namá in urradus, O'D. 970 ( H 3.17, 679 ). direnar .i. nach duine direnar cin biid accradh inna apuidh, no a lepaidh, O'Curry 483 ( H 3.18, 251 ). ma ainfine ro be na gnais is lepa, ┐ ma fine is apa, ar is apa la fine ┐ leba la anfine, O'Curry 2548 ( Eg.88, 46a ). focrai n-aptha .i. foccrai leptha la apuid, O'Curry 808 ( H 3.18, 373b ). Plummer, MS. notes, suggests that this may mean that apad-sheltering is l.¤-sheltering which has been forbidden by express notice, but that would make apad-sheltering more serious than l.¤-sheltering which it is not. Granting l.¤ to a criminal or proscribed person makes the host liable to the payment of fíach leptha, i.e. the fine for harbouring. Certain people (king, briugu and higher(?) ecclesiastics) may harbour without incurring penalty unless they are aware that the person harboured has committed a crime. If they are so aware they incur a share of the penalty due for the crime and if they protect the criminal against the consequences of his crime they are liable to the full penalty for the crime. slan dno righ ┐ briugaid ┐ cealla a tuaith a meodhan on trath coraile. Ocus go fis fogla annsin, ┐ fiach forro o tsin amach ar biadh ┐ leba; ┐ lanfiach forra dia nosditnit, O'Curry 2566 ( Eg. 88, 47b ). This is probably also the meaning in: infíd . . . dóib Iṅcel C. do bith i ll.¤ ac Nemiud mac Srobcind, Ériu vi 148.26 . echtrannfaid felle for cach dind, connach ain l.¤ na luge, glossed: fellfaid cach for i[n]ti bias fora l.¤ , RC xxvi 40 § 206 . ni-s-fetam tra olc frisin ti ata it l.¤-si, PH 2221 (`under thy protection'). ná geibh tosach leaptha dhé / rett aes cumtha, Acall. 588.

Also with leptha (hardly pl. Perh. abstracted from phr. fíach leptha). `It seems that leptha and aptha denote degrees of responsibility for sheltering or otherwise aiding and abetting a tribeless man who has committed some offence, and that leptha denotes the graver and aptha the lighter responsibility', Gwynn, Ériu xiii 230 n . on: mesir leptha ar leth, mesir aptha ar trian, 41.31 . Cf. O'Curry 2548 ( Eg. 88, 46a ). isedh am is aptha ar trian doib fine in urruidh ar a taitt griun. Issedh is leptha ar leth imurro cach fine otha sin amach `"aptha-sheltering at a third" to them applies to the tribe of the native on whose land they are. But "leptha-sheltering at a half" applies to every tribe from that out', Laws ii 180.3 Comm . cumul ┐ leth an cina for lebtha n-ainfine isan mbiatha ria ndenam cina, ┐ da trian na cumaile ┐ trian an cina for lebtha fine isan mbiatha ria ndenam cina, O'Curry 2551 ( Eg. 88, 46a ).

By transf. of the host or harbourer: gabur de budein no dia lepud, ar bi taithidhech leptha n-urdalta, Laws i 190.21 Comm . cach cin dognither a cain dia mbeth di crich no teora cricha itir fine ┐ in biuba ┐ in tí bís og agra is lepta innsaigis for fine i suigiu. Mad iar na dilsiugh imorro, is lepa icas do gres after he has been proscribed it is his harbourer who pays, O'Curry 2554 ( Eg. 88, 46 - 7 ( 47 - 8 ) marg. sup.). ? nach foghlaidh . . . ┐ nach elodhthach . . . is ann a cin fora l.¤ ┐ a codh ┐ a cerchaill, O'Curry 2531 ( Eg. 88 44a ). The `féchem toicheda' may proceed against the person who granted l.¤ to an offender if it is more convenient to do so than to proceed against the offender's own `fine': [masa] nesa fine na lebtha, ica fine lanfiach; . . . masa nesa leaptha na fine ┐ isé nesa uil ann an tan ata da crich no teora cricha eturru .i. itir an feithem toithe ┐ an fine ┐ ata lebtha a n-aon crich no isin crich is nesa, ica lebtha lan fiach amach, cidh lebtha fine cidh lebtha ainfine, O'Curry 2552 ( Eg. 88 46b ). If the `féchem toicheda' has levied the fine on the `fine' of the offender the `fine' is entitled to proceed for repayment against the person who granted l.¤ Presumably in this case the `fine' would have proscribed the offender before he committed the offence: masa biatha ria ndenam cina ┐ nesa fine na lebtha, ica fine lanfiach amach, ┐ toigbe cuici amuich, O'Curry 2551 (ibid.). An innocent person or one acting under compulsion is not liable to penalty: ni cintach leaptha eandacc omnach, na heicne, na hecnach nad ecumang . . . .i. noco tabar cin a dualgas a leaptha forsin droing seo, O'Curry 1882 ( 23 P 3, 21 ). The penalty may be incurred by merely feeding the outlaw: fiachu leptha for nech biathas [bid]baid, ZCP xv 360 § 45 n.2 . cisne tri biada na tuillead leaptha na hapta, cidbe ro caithe? Biad solloman; de sechtmaine; ni tidnaic deorad De, Laws v 438.14 .
