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.

(a) in primary sense setting down, placing, depositing: fuirmedh .i. indell no cur, O'Dav. 932 . fuirmheadh .i. cur, O'Cl. delba clochda ... cen sigin na crochi do f.¤ indib PH 754 . a fuirmidh a ngradh to place him (the pupil) in a grade Laws ii 348.21 Comm. aithne fuirimiudu (.i. fuirmither for dealgan aithgin ind ...), SM Facs. 55b . aithne fuirmidha .i. in aithne fuirmither a n-inad airithe (one of the seven deposits which are to be restored even though there has been no pledge), Laws v 196.3 (14) . But cf. tri aithne na dlegat taisec ... aithne fuirmeda, Triads 157 , glossed in the 18th cent. copy : .i. do fūigfidhe gan aithne do thabhairt go cinnte i ccumhdach acht go héccinte air, p.40 (i.e. a deposit left without proper security ?). ro laoi fiadhnuise fair fuirmhedh, Ériu xiii 15.10 (= ro le, etc. .i. gugudh fiadnise tiscaidh dire n-aire, O'Dav. 1344 ). 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). In fig. sense : noco tabair in scel f.¤ doridhissi furri never touches on (alludes to) her Acall. 6437 .

(See furmada). ail fuirmedha (complimentary epithet of a chieftain) ML² 1579 .

Perhaps gs. in the expression : mac fuirmid (fuirmeda), the name given to a bardic pupil of the second year , although this is probably to be read as a compd., maccfuirmid. mac fuirmeda occurs at least once. Cf. cidh díre Mac-ḟuirmidh, Ériu xiii 25.27 . díre mar mac ḟuirmhidh, 22.26 - 27 . maccfurmid ┐ fochloc irchruachait doib, LL 29a col. e (3664) . triar for fecht feili dofhidh | dam thoga do mac furmidh, Auraic. 2248 . tri seoid don macfuirmid, YBL 198a13 (= Laws v 60 ). in macfuirmid da ba a eniclann ib.

Y 41 s.v. anair = fuirmedh poetarum romidhair haec nomina , etc. H 3.18, 63aw ( Phil. Soc. Trans. 171 ). cf. fer fuirmid, supra, fo-ruimi, -fuirmi.

(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. Isidore, Etym. xvi 3 ] its `inde,' is used in restricted sense of a stone, its `fuirmed'). `bonus,' is comforlethan a fuirmed et a inde, ar ni habar `bonus' acht bail a mbí cáil bonitatis the application and the etymology of bonus are co-extensive, for bonus is not said save where the quality of bonitas is Auraic. 3400 .
