- upbraid: [OE] Upbraid originally meant ‘throw something up against someone as a fault’. It was formed from up and the ancestor of modern English braid, which used to mean ‘throw’, amongst other things. The object of the verb was originally the ‘fault’; the shift of focus to the ‘person blamed’ began in the 13th century.
