TEM8 IELTS GRE
- fetter: [OE] Etymologically, fetters are shackles for restraining the ‘feet’. The word comes from prehistoric Germanic *feterō, which derived ultimately from the same Indo-European base, *ped-, as produced English foot. The parallel Latin formation, incidentally, was pedica ‘fetter’, from which English gets impeach.
=> foot, impeach, pedal
- fetter (n.)
- Old English fetor "chain or shackle by which a person or animal is bound by the feet," figuratively "check, restraint," from Proto-Germanic *fetero (cognates: Old Saxon feteros (plural), Middle Dutch veter "fetter," in modern Dutch "lace, string," Old High German fezzera, Old Norse fiöturr, Swedish fjätter "fetter"), from PIE root *ped- (1) "foot" (see foot (n.)).
