dílmain adj i (dí + loman leash, O'Rahilly, Sc. G. St. ii 17 ff . q.v.).
The primary meaning appears to be free from restraint (?),
20 without attachment ; hence (a) applied to actions, that which is
free, permissbile, without hindrance or penalty , and (b) of agent
or instrument free (to act), unhampered . The connexion is
shown in Wb. 14a24 where d. ¤ glosses vacuum in veniet cum ei
vacuum fuerit = when it will be free to him to do so = in tan
25bus d. ¤ dó; and Bcr. 32c3 where indilmainiu = expeditius
(aliis aptius multo et expeditius videtur ut computatio . . .
incipiat).
