Etymology[edit]

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

Pronunciation[edit]

Adjective[edit]

searbăd m, n (feminine singular searbădă, masculine plural serbezi, feminine and neuter plural serbede)
