verfetzen

All I can find on b.g.c is scannos of verſetzen, i.e. versetzen with a long s. The definitions supplied belong to zerfetzen, to which this entry can be moved if it fails RFV. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 21:16, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Never heard about verfetzen. And all I can find on google seem to be erroneous OCR of versetzen or typos of zerfetzen, IMHO. However as the definitions certainly fit zerfetzen I cannot exclude that it's some rare regional synonyms of zerfetzen. Matthias Buchmeier (talk) 23:48, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
I find it unlikely, given that the entry was originally created by a native French speaker with German on level 2, without a strong history of editing in German. --Hekaheka (talk) 17:59, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
I agree it looks like a typo for zerfetzen. Perhaps we should just move the page to there. --WikiTiki89 18:11, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
  • I've gone ahead and moved it to zerfetzen. If it turns out to exist as a rare, obsolete, dialectal, or otherwise uncomfortable word, it can always be re-created (with cites). —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 19:43, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
