IVIn a special sense of a married woman:the state or
condition of having left her husband or being put away by
him; a law-term. Concluded from the foll. passages:
20 lécid in fear a cétmuindtir...┐ dogní neach mac fria iarum
┐ dobeir sim aitherrach ní dlegar iarrad disi. intan bís for
deabaid is ann toirchither frisin fear,&c. ,if the husband
puts his wife away and somebody gets a child with her
and the husband takes her back again, then she is not
25entitled to the fosterage-fee. It is while she is at `debaid'
(at variance with her husband and away from him) that
she is got with child
Laws v 200. 17 .Gormlaith ingen
Ḟlaind tanic ar debaid ó Cherball do thig a athar i cinta
ind imdergtha tuc Cerball di LL 52 b 1 ; ib. 13 (of Gorm-
30ḟlaith who returns to her father after being badly treated by
Cerball her husband). This sense arose from I (controversy
as a cause of separation). A similar usage FDG 32 :
codlais Domnall...atchí fís ┐ aislingthi ┐ ised atchon-
nairc .i. cuilén con rohailed lais fora glún fésin a dul for
35debaid uada(the hound gathers the dogs of Ireland and
gives battle to Domnall).for d. ¤ , which refers to the rela-
tions between Domn. and his dog, was misunderstood
by the copyists and replaced by `for duible ┐ dásacht'
(adopted by O'D.).Cf.also LU 21 a 4 ( IT ii 212. 1 f.b. ):
40 mád nech dít muintir noragad for debuid noanfad limsa co
róisced a síd.

8 f.b. —b'ḟéidir nár chás duit deabhadh dhéanaṁ; dein
deabhadh! goidé an deabhadh atá ort?(W.K.). The sense-
development is strange; probably a contamination of debaid
50with deibed.
