PronunciationEdit

EtymologyEdit

Possibly formed from Middle Dutch beticht(legal claim, accusation). However, beticht does not appear to be attested in modern Dutch (after 1500) whereas the verb betichten only appears around that time. Since it is unlikely that a verb would be formed from a noun that was falling out of use already, it is likely that it was formed directly as be- +‎ ticht +‎ -en instead.

VerbEdit
