Forms: óinmite, óinmhid, áinmhid, oinmit

n ī ( Ériu xiii 150 ), f. (Teutonic loan-word through Cymric, cf. W ynfyd, Pedersen Vgl. Gr. i 21 or *ón + *menti-, Ériu xiii 150 ) g s. óinmite (but ōnmith, ZCP viii 309.3 , used of a man). óinmhid áinmhid (f., g s. n p. -i), IGT Dec. § 13.26 .

A fool , used of both sexes but chiefly of men (in Laws ii 44 z - 46.4 oinmit `a woman fool' is distinguished from on `a man fool', but the text is uncertain; see on); apparently a natural or half-witted person who might nevertheless possess considerable shrewdness and intuition or even occasionally inspiration. The óinmit seems to have been sometimes employed as a professional jester or entertainer; in the list of the 26 recognized social grades or callings in Laws iv 344.1 follg. the óinmit stands twenty-second in order. In later lit. the word denotes in general a simple or foolish person.
