English - Etymology

From Middle English _abetten_, _abette_, from Old French _abeter_ (“to entice”), from _a-_ (“to”) + _beter_ (“hound on, urge, to bait”), from either Middle Dutch _bētan_ (“incite”), OR from Old Norse _beita_ (“to cause to bite, bait, incite”), from Proto-Germanic _*baitijaną_ (“to cause to bite”), from Proto-Indo-European _*bʰeyd-_ (“to split”). Cognate with Icelandic _beita_ (“to set dogs on", "to feed”). * Alternate etymology traces the Middle English and Old French words through Old English _*ābǣtan_ (“to hound on”), from _ā-_ + _bǣtan_ (“to bait”), from the same Proto-Germanic source. * See also _bait_, _bet_.
