Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Possibly a substratum connection with Albanian tharbët ("sour, acrid"), or from an alteration of Latin fervidus through a hypothetical intermediate *sfearbăd with the prefix s-, from ("ex-"). Other theories include Latin roots *subalbidus ("whitish"), *exalbidus, from albidus, or *salvidus, from salvia.

Adjective[edit]
