D. 111, 9 the forms are almost certainly plural, and might belong to a neuter singular ge-bæ-acute;re, to which also might be referred all but the four singular forms given above; and in favour of the neuter is the Old Saxon gi-&b-bar;ari (an thínumu gibárea).] I. in the following glosses :-- Gebéro gestus, Txts. 65, 957.
