Note. The folly and absurdity of wTiting fuidhe for foidhe is obvious from the
compound of foidh, i, e, fodham-sa, fodhadsa. It is only a mispronunciation,as griobh-
ach is mispronounced, gruach, siod (sud) ; and if fuidh be continued fudham-sa,
fudhad.samust be adopted, to be consistent. Eadaruimi, annainn, &c. should be declin-
ed, but being exemplified at great length in the Dictionary in their respective places, it
is deemed unnecessary.
