Turkish pronunciation bästırd
, son of a bitch
Etymology [ bas-t&rd ] (noun.) 14th century. From Middle English, from Late Old English, from Anglo-Norman bastard (“illegitimate child”), from Old Low Frankish *bāst (“marriage”) (compare Middle Dutch bast (“lust, heat”)) and derogatory suffix -ard, from Proto-Germanic *bandstuz (“bond, tie”) (compare West Frisian boask, boaste (“marriage”)), from Proto-Indo-European *bʰendʰ- (“to tie, bind”). Probably originally referred to a child from a polygynous marriage of Germanic custom but not sanctioned by the Church.
