ge-bǽru
Add: [The declension and gender of this word are uncertain. In An. 1572: Ph. 125: Wrt. Voc. ii. 91, 59: 40, 28 the forms seem to belong to the declension of feminine nouns which remain unchanged in the singular, and to this declension all the other instances (especially Wrt. Voc. ii. 42, 57) might belong. In Wrt. Voc. ii. 110, 21: Gr. D. 111, 9 the forms are almost certainly plural, and might belong to a neuter singular ge-bǽre, 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-ƀari (an thínumu gibárea).] I. in the following glosses Gebéro gestus, Txts. 65, 957.
