- condition of being swept
A great number of verbs can be used as adjectives when inflected to the past participle, but far from all of them are used in this sense. The word feid is mostly used in the sense of something sweeping in the past (as a verb), as in: Jeg har feid gulvet fem ganger i dag = I have swept the floor five times today, where har is the auxiliary verb.
