Ep. 560 . in frithalid nech in far ṅdíaid do you expect anyone to follow you ?

Passing into sense opines, assumes (?), takes into consideration (?) : in tan asṁbeirsom beatus uir rl. frisailethar hisuidiu nant beatus inti nad agathar, etc. Ml 129a2a . frisalethar mbis `qui' archintech he assumes (?) that there is a definite `qui' Sg 207a3 (gl. qui, quando pro interrogativo vel infinito ... ponitur, circum- flectitur).

ni hi senchas bec fris-ailither, Laws i 42.29 Comm. is doubtful ; it seems to correspond to : ro airled 40.14 , but possibly the meaning intended is handled, dealt with .

(b) with further sense of anticipates, bewares, is on the look-out for (a danger, enemy, etc.), somet. handles, tackles (cf. fris-indlea) : frithalid aslach Diabuil SR 1457 . frithail ... catha 5011 . fēgaid, fomnaid, frithailid ! Ériu iii 143 § 1 . frithalti in láech fail ic folmaisi do gona TBC 2126 (v.l. fritailter let in laoc ; frithoil in fer). da ria C. ... da bar saigid ... frithalter acaib é ! 4439 (biodh oirichill agaibh air v.l.).

The follg. may be an extension of this sense : frithail uaim na hassu-sa BCC § 347 (poem) ; `help me to get these sandals off' transl., but the context shows that the speaker had not yet put on the sandals and wished to give them as a present.

(d) receives (a guest), entertains, attends or ministers to ; in this and the follg. sense nearly synon. with frestlaid and sometimes used in association with it : ro rithailed (.i. tancutar aingil i frestal anim[a]e suae) LB Fél. lxxxii (gl. frisindled, May 23 ). ro fritháiled in rí (arriving for a feast) TBC 997 . is amlaid ra frithálit LL 263a35 ( MU² 199 ). aroét, Trip.² 744 = roet (.i. ro frithoil) é co failti móir, Arch. iii 18 . frithailter do biud ┐ do lind let them be served with food and drink, Anecd. i 11.6 . ro frithāiled ... co maith an aidhchi sin Fursa, BColm. 98.5 . do freasladh ┐ do fritholad in t-imper ... do rogha gacha bidh ZCP vi 48.26 .
