Proto-Germanic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *pr̥téw-, the oblique stem of *pértus, equivalent to unattested *feraną (to cross) +‎ *-þuz. The nominative stem gave rise to *ferþuz. In the nominative the stress fell on the root, and as such *ferþuz does not display the effects of Verner's Law seen in *furduz, which has generalized the oblique stem.
