1. (审判团的) ver(真实) + dict(说).
- verdict:  A verdict is etymologically a ‘true saying’. The word was borrowed from verdit, the Anglo-Norman variant of Old French veirdit. This was a compound term formed from veir ‘true’ (a descendant of Latin vērum and relative of English very) and dit ‘saying, speech’, which came from Latin dictum. The partial latinization of verdit to verdict took place in the 16th century.
