Usage noteEdit

Frequently suffixed to a period of day or season (ǣfentīd, wintertīd) to show consideration of it as a span of time, as modern English -time (evening time, wintertime) or archaic English -tide (eventide, wintertide).

Although tīd was used for natural cycles of time, it was apparently not used for the cycles of the ocean and other large bodies of water until Middle English (c. 1340). The Old English terms for the tide were instead flōd and ebba.
