Forms: deadhair, deaghair

i, adj. Phonet. deg(h)air, ded(h)air. The common transl. ` quick, nimble ' has no support in the literature. It is due to O'Clery and wrongly concluded by him or some older lexicographer from passages where d.¤ occurs side by side with dian and similar adjectives. deaghdhair .i. luath, O'Cl. Hence deaghair, ` swift or nimble ,' Lhuyd ; ` quick, nimble, agile, active ,' P. O'C. ; deadhair, deaghair, `swift,' O'R.—Dedgair lies within the same sphere of sense as dian, dígair, díchra, to which it is often joined. It may be trl. earnest, fervent, eager, zealous . Usually applied to persons and always in a good sense. Occasionally joined to dron, datta.
