English[edit | edit source]

Etymology[edit | edit source]

From Old English feortan, from Template:Gem[[Category:Template:Gem derivations|Fart]] *fertan, *fartōn, from Proto-Indo-European *perd- (to fart), probably of imitative origin. Compare with Greek πέρδομαι (perdomai), Latin pēdĕre, Sanskrit pardate, Avestan pərəδaiti and Russian [[пердеть#Template:Ru|пердеть]] (perdet’), all with the same meaning. The transition of /p/ to /f/ and /d/ to /t/ is a typical example of Grimm's law as manifested in German furzen.
