    Этимология

    [ &-'bet ] (transitive verb.) 14th century. From Middle English abetten, from Old French abeter, from à- + beter (“to bait an animal”), of Germanic origin, from Old Norse beita (“to cause to bite, bait, incite”), from Proto-Germanic *baitijanan (“to cause to bite”), from Proto-Indo-European *bheid- (“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.
