From Old Swedish fält, from Middle Low German velt, from Old Saxon feld, from Proto-West Germanic *felþu, cognate with Old English feld, English field, also (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?) related to fjäll.



fält n

  1. a field, a (physical) area, an open space in a landscape (for farming or battle)
    soldat i fält
    a soldier in the field
  2. (mathematics, physics) a field (of vectors, of forces)
  3. a field (of interest), an area, a topic, a sphere (region of activity)

Usage notes[edit]

  • The "field", just like the industry "floor", has connotations of real, practical, down-to-earth activity, as opposed to theoretical studies in a chamber, an academy, or at an engineer's drawing board.
