1 díden n ā,f. end (= déden?). The form dídine in dia óine d. ¤
seems to be g s. of déiden, díden (di-ḟedan) vn. of do-feid (cf.
air-diden). See Liad. and Cur. pp. 22 , 23 .
10(a) g s. in óin didine end fast, i.e. Friday (opp. to cétóin):

(b) In Mid. Ir. in such phrases as dia áine didine the word
was understood as gs. of an adj., hence n s. óin diden : oen

didiu particle of transition = diṡuidiu (which is used for it
FB § 6 ), see Ped. ii 189 . Written in full, didiu: Wb. 1a9 ;
4a27 , c23 , d27 ; 8a4 ; 11b17a ; 15d20 ; 32c13 . didu: Wb. 8a5 .

Corm. Y 1154 . RC xii 74.3 , 8 . Anecd. iv p. xii . Buile S. § 3 .
50In Ml. and later MSS. however nearly always contracted dī
and by earlier editors generally expanded as din (so always
in PH) or dino (through confusion with dano), or somet. diu
(SG); dni, FM v 1552 . Expanded as dino in TBC² 422 , 428 ,
434 , 462 , 469 , 472 , etc., where LU reads dano. Later also
55apparently d(h)e, see Ériu x 155 .
Didiu never begins a sentence. It always has reference to
something preceding. Exceptions are only apparent, e.g.
Corm. Y 1053 (where puincern has been introduced in the
preceding article) and 568 (cf. 519 ). It generally follows a
60more or less emphatic word, often a noun or pron., but
occasionally comes after ocus or nó at beginning of clause
(esp. in PH); no dī may however = nō dō (= dano, q.v.).
(a) In logical sequence therefore, hence = Lat. ergo: nitat
torbi . . . is diliu lemm didiu aní as torbæ, Wb. 11b17a , 4c24 .
65 d27 , 8a4 , 15d20 . is mōir sléb[e] fírinne Dæ: cid ara fodmaisiu,

Chairinde oc in rigain therefore C. was very harshly treated by

, RC xxiv 190 . omnia ergo quaecunque vultis, cech
maith din is ail lib, PH 5772 . Hence freq. in drawing a con-
clusion or moral: conid aire sin didiu napo chóir do neoch
80uabur . . . do denam, LL 279a33 . connach cóir d. ¤ lenmain do
sholud nó shénairecht, 281b29 . conid ferr do neoch d. ¤ a
