English[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Middle English fetten, feten, from Old English fetian, fatian (to bring, fetch), probably a conflation of Proto-Germanic *fetaną (to go), from Proto-Indo-European *pÁd- (to go); and Proto-Germanic *fatōną (to hold, seize), from Proto-Indo-European *pAd- (to seize). Cognate with Dutch vatten (to catch, grab), German fassen (to lay hold of, seize, take, hold). Compare also Icelandic feta (to find one's way). More at fetch.
