Etymology 1Edit

VerbEdit

met

  1. simple past tense and past participle of meet

Etymology 2Edit

VerbEdit

met

  1. (obsolete) simple past tense and past participle of mete (to measure)
    (Can we find and add a quotation of Chapman to this entry?)

Etymology 3Edit

From Middle English meten (to dream, see in a sweven), from Old English mætan (to dream).

VerbEdit

met (third-person singular simple present -, present participle -, simple past met, past participle -)

  1. (obsolete) To dream.
    • William Cartwright (1651)
      All night me met eke that I was at Kirke.
Usage notesEdit
  • Met is a defective, impersonal verb, and as such it only occurs in the past tense, for example:
Me met that I was walking in a wondrous wood where a thousand wild wolfins live. (I dreamt that I was walking in a wondrous forest where a thousand wild she-wolves live)
  • In Old English and Middle English this verb was not defective and was used both personally and impersonally. However, in northern rural dialects, where it is still in use, this verb only occurs in the past tense and in impersonal constructions.
