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.

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. Airbri .i. fri Bri Eli anair, O'Mulc. 70 = Dinds. 16 ( RC xv 308 ). ? a nAicill ar Temair, Anecd. i 17.1 . Cf. perh. Síd ar Femin, LU 7846 ( BDD 140 ), etc. (or for al?). 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.

Perh. for for in: ó fó-certa a ṡrúb ar géscoe against a branch, BDD² 349 (= ar gésce, 355 ). conadh ar x. míli cathrach do shiublaighdis techta Magnuis Cam . . . ō maduin co fescor `to ten thousand cities', Marco P. 96 .

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 . ?

fonaidm

Cite this: eDIL s.v. fonaidm or dil.ie/23233

Forms: fosnaidm

n n, n. (vn. of fo-naisc) rare in Text of Laws, but frequent in Comm., often as gloss on naidm(m) from which it does not seem to differ in meaning. Thurneysen ( Bürgschaft p. 83 ) suggests that (despite the difference in prep.) it is an imitation of Lat. ob-ligatio. Somet. written fosnaidm (cf. snaidm), see below.

I Binding (in lit. sense): f.¤ nath náir (a feat of Cú Chulainn's) LU 9292 (corresp. to: co fornadmaim, 5974 ). f.¤ níad for rindib sleg, 10344 .

(a) act of binding, esp. binding an obligation or a contract; binding one or pledging something as security, guarantee: atē donadmand ... nadad cōra do nadmaidm [leg. nadmaim] (.i. noco coir af.¤), Laws iv 62.8 . iar fonaidmaim do for comorba `after he has bound the heirs to it' Laws i 226.31 Comm.

(i.e. to get submission from T.) BDD 15 . Here probably: f.¤ ruirech to bind (= exact pledges i.e. submission from) sub-kings Triads 202 (expld. : fornaidm r. .i. ríogha eile congbhail faoi, p. 41 ). conadh ar daighain dithle an athar dogneter f.¤ a coibche dí that it is for the sake of defrauding her father the covenant of her nuptial present is made with her' Laws iv 60.24 Comm. f.¤ na boruma imposing RC xvii 13.29 (Tig.) = foṡnaidhm na boramha, AFM i 114.6 .

Cf. fuair M. fri foṡnaidm ... sogairm sóer sléibe sen-M. `acquired by covenant' Metr. Dinds. iii 240 .

(b) pledge, bond, guarantee: (sometimes probably guarantor, cf. naidm(m)ráth): gaeth cach co fonadmaim fonascar fri comus n-ae ar is cro timorgnae cach aighnedha a arach fri comus n-aei, ZCP xii 364.6 . inti dani in f.¤ , Laws v 376.10 Comm.

III Some of the following instances in Laws Comm. seem to contain a transferred meaning; those from the published Laws are rendered (a) ` attendance ' or (b) ` condiment ', but Atk., Gloss. s.v., thinks the meaning is ` security ' in all cases: on trath co raili a turtugud (.i. or trath co celi a ḟaesam .i. a lain-biathad co f.¤ tucad do sund ┐ a lan-faesam do ḟacaib ar a scath) `his full feeding and attendance' Laws v 86.28 . tuirt[ug]ud tresi (.i. tressi a lanḟaesam bid ┐ fonadma) `three days are his full protection in food and attendance' 30.23 . see also Laws v 58.20 Comm. leth foesum fagbuit na graidh feine ┐ in t-aire desa cin f.¤ ┐ ma ta f.¤ is lanfoesum `half protection is relinquished [afforded ?] by the F. grades and the `aire désa,' without condiment, and if there is condiment it is full protection (that is relinquished [afforded ?], see fáes(s)am])' ii 36.15 . cf. masa lain biathadh cu fodnaidm is lanfoesum fagabhur ar a sgath. masa lainbiathadh cin fosnaidm, no lethbiathudh cu foṡnaidm no taircsin lainbiathad co fosnaidm, is lethfoesum fagabhur ar a sgath, 28.22 . in fir rosfagunn cutruma na rainne bius do foesum ar sgath a bidh, is a cutruma uile ar sgath fodnadhma `for the sake of condiment' 20.17 . in inbaid is dar an fis faosma in ecmais ro gabad an athgabail .i. lubra ┐ bidh ┐ fonadma, O'Curry 2657 (< Eg. 88, 56 ) = Laws ii 38.3 Comm.
