adj io-iā (< féth-da, KM, ZCP xiii 191 . Cf. 3 and 4 féth) An adj. of uncertain meaning, applied in complimentary sense both to persons (of either sexs), and things. Of persons, seems in older lit. to indicate some moral quality; the orig. sense may be calm, quiet, sedate or of women gentle (cf. 3 féth) passing gradually into steady, resolute, capable; the definition of P. O'C. : féata ` valiant, brave ' is prob. a late development. tairismig, nibat lúamnaig at hé feta forhúamnaig SR 4396 (of the Tabernacle choir). fer f.¤ farsaid findliath LL 267b30 ( MU² 745 , of Sencha m.
