- n. Feud; hate.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
OF. fede, feide, faide the phrase fede mortel = deadly feud' is recorded from 13th c., ad.
In 1415th c. the word occurs only in Sc. writers, the form being always fede, feide, or something phonetically equivalent.
The ordinary statement that the change of form was due to the influence of feud n.2 is obviously incorrect; feud n.2 is not recorded in our material until half a century after the appearance of the forms foode, fewd, and would not account for them even if it were proved to have existed earlier; moreover, even in the 17th c. it was merely a rare technical word used by writers on the feudal system', and its sense is too remote from that of the northern feide for the assumed influence to have operated.
