SEYMLY, fair, comely, GG. 524. The edit. 1508, reads seynily, by a misprint, which Pinkerton converts into seynity. Jamieson contends that seynily is right, and means signal!!!

SEIR, GG. 529, is so printed by Pinkerton and
Jamieson, although the edit. of 1508 reads
FEIR. The meaning is doubtful.

which Jamieson, v. Scheidis, gives up as
inexplicable, and yet which is of such fre-
quent occurrence as to deserve more notice
than he has chosen to bestow on it. It is
in most cases spoken of God, and the ori-
ginal idea seems to imply the creation of
the world in seven days, whence it means to
set or dispose in order, GG. 1045. Compare
the Pystyl of Susan, xxi. 4; and Towneley
Mysteries, pp. 85, 97, 118. But in GG.
508,668, the phrase appears to have ac-
quired another sense, namely, to encounter
in battle. In the same sense it occurs in
the alliterative Morte Arthure, f. 75b.
SETE, (?) GK. 889. GG. 1155. Perhaps con-
nected with Su. G. sæta, prodesse.

SLYNGE, blow, AA. xlviii. 5. The Douce MS. reads slenk, which is only a provincial mode of pronunciation. Jamieson, however, is misled by it, and interprets it erroneously, a piece of low craft.
