The deich narba H 3. 18 , p. 651 (gl. .i. deich cumala) stands for deich ndarba and the glossator's arba .i. cumal is a vox nihili.

All these forms seem to originate from an old com- pound dáir-bé, dáir-bae, dáir-ba (cf. dermár: dermăr). It is hardly necessary with Stokes, Ériu ii 9 , to assume two etymologically different words dáir-be and darba (Stokes' darb, Ériu l.c., RC xxvii 88 , is an imaginary sg. to darba, H 3. 18 reads darba); for `darba' may be ascribed to the attempt of the grammarians to bring the no longer under- stood `dairba' (i.e. daorbha) into accordance with the rule `leathan la leathan.' That dáir-bé, as might be suggested, is only an etymologizing transformation of darba is strongly contradicted by the writing dærba, Amra Conrói H 3. 18 .
