All these forms seem to originate from an old com-
pounddáir-bé,dáir-bae,dáir-ba(cf. dermár:dermăr).
It is hardly necessary with Stokes, Ériu ii 9 , to assume two
65etymologically different wordsdáir-beanddarba(Stokes'
darb, Ériul.c., RC xxvii 88 , is an imaginarysg.todarba,
H 3. 18 readsdarba); 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
5`leathan la leathan.' Thatdáir-bé, as might be suggested,
is only an etymologizing transformation ofdarbais strongly
contradicted by the writingdærba, Amra Conrói H 3. 18 .
