English

Etymology

From Old English feortan, from Germanic *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 (perdet'), all with the same meaning. The transition of /p/ to /f/ and /d/ to /t/ is a typical exmaple of Grimm's law as manifested in German furzen.
