Etymology of fart

Posted by Johannes on 1 March 2010

Origin of fart
The word fart (a flatus expelled through the anus) comes from the Old English verb fert-en, which derives from the ancient Greek verb perd-ome (fart).

In modern Greek (Romeika, the language of Romei/Romans/Ρωμηοί)
a) perdome: fart (v) [πέρδομαι]
b) porde: fart (n) [πορδή]


Η λέξη fart (πέρδομαι) προέρχεται από το ελληνικό ρήμα πέρδομαι.
