doh \doh\ (d[=o]), n.
the syllable naming the first (tonic) note of any major
diatonic scale in solmization, usually written {do}.

Syn: do, ut.
[WordNet 1.5]

do \do.\, n.
An abbreviation of {Ditto}.
[1913 Webster]

Do \Do\ (d[=o]), n. (Mus.)
A syllable attached to the first tone of the major diatonic
scale for the purpose of solmization, or solfeggio. It is the
first of the seven syllables used by the Italians as manes of
musical tones, and replaced, for the sake of euphony, the
syllable Ut, applied to the note C. In England and America
the same syllables are used by many as a scale pattern, while
the tones in respect to absolute pitch are named from the
first seven letters of the alphabet.
[1913 Webster]

do \do\ (d[=oo]), v. t. or auxiliary. [imp. {did} (d[i^]d); p.
p. {done} (d[u^]n); p. pr. & vb. n. {Doing} (d[=oo]"[i^]ng).
This verb, when transitive, is formed in the indicative,
present tense, thus: I do, thou doest (d[=oo]"[e^]st) or dost
(d[u^]st), he does (d[u^]z), doeth (d[=oo]"[e^]th), or doth
(d[u^]th); when auxiliary, the second person is, thou dost.
As an independent verb, dost is obsolete or rare, except in
poetry. "What dost thou in this world?" --Milton. The form
doeth is a verb unlimited, doth, formerly so used, now being
the auxiliary form. The second pers, sing., imperfect tense,
is didst (d[i^]dst), formerly didest (d[i^]d"[e^]st).] [AS.
d[=o]n; akin to D. doen, OS. duan, OHG. tuon, G. thun, Lith.
deti, OSlav. d[=e]ti, OIr. d['e]nim I do, Gr. tiqe`nai to
put, Skr. dh[=a], and to E. suffix -dom, and prob. to L.
facere to do, E. fact, and perh. to L. -dere in some
compounds, as addere to add, credere to trust. [root]65. Cf.
{Deed}, {Deem}, {Doom}, {Fact}, {Creed}, {Theme}.]

[Webster 1913 Suppl.]

(a) Do and did are much employed as auxiliaries, the verb
to which they are joined being an infinitive. As an
auxiliary the verb do has no participle. "I do set my
bow in the cloud." --Gen. ix. 13. [Now archaic or
rare except for emphatic assertion.]
[1913 Webster]

Rarely . . . did the wrongs of individuals to
the knowledge of the public. -- Macaulay.
(b) They are often used in emphatic construction. "You
don't say so, Mr. Jobson. -- but I do say so." --Sir
W. Scott. "I did love him, but scorn him now."
(c) In negative and interrogative constructions, do and
did are in common use. I do not wish to see them;
what do you think? Did C[ae]sar cross the Tiber? He
did not. "Do you love me?" --Shak.
(d) Do, as an auxiliary, is supposed to have been first
used before imperatives. It expresses entreaty or
earnest request; as, do help me. In the imperative
mood, but not in the indicative, it may be used with
the verb to be; as, do be quiet. Do, did, and done
often stand as a general substitute or representative
verb, and thus save the repetition of the principal
verb. "To live and die is all we have to do."
--Denham. In the case of do and did as auxiliaries,
the sense may be completed by the infinitive (without
to) of the verb represented. "When beauty lived and
died as flowers do now." --Shak. "I . . . chose my
wife as she did her wedding gown." --Goldsmith.
[1913 Webster]

My brightest hopes giving dark fears a being.
As the light does the shadow. -- Longfellow.
In unemphatic affirmative sentences do is, for the
most part, archaic or poetical; as, "This just
reproach their virtue does excite." --Dryden.
[1913 Webster]

{To do one's best}, {To do one's diligence} (and the like),
to exert one's self; to put forth one's best or most or
most diligent efforts. "We will . . . do our best to gain
their assent." --Jowett (Thucyd.).

{To do with}, to dispose of; to make use of; to employ; --
usually preceded by what. "Men are many times brought to
that extremity, that were it not for God they would not
know what to do with themselves." --Tillotson.

{To have to do with}, to have concern, business or
intercourse with; to deal with. When preceded by what, the
notion is usually implied that the affair does not concern
the person denoted by the subject of have. "Philology has
to do with language in its fullest sense." --Earle. "What
have I to do with you, ye sons of Zeruiah?" --2 Sam. xvi.
[1913 Webster]

1. To act or behave in any manner; to conduct one's self.

found, he will make this do.
