  • noun [ feminine ]

D, is sometimes changed into ð, as Ic wurde, or Ic wurðe: snídan, sníðan
to cut.
d and t are often interchanged, as métte
met, for métde.
nouns ending in d or t are generally feminine, as Gebyrd, e; f. birth: Miht, e; f.
might, power.
a word terminating with ed, d [Icel. at, t: Ger. et, t]
indicates that a person or thing is furnished or provided with that which is expressed by the root, and is usually considered as a participle, although no verb may exist to which it can be assigned; such words have, therefore, generally ge prefixed to them; as gehyrned horned; gesceód shod, Rask's Gr. by Thorpe, § 326.
the perfect participle ends in ed, od, but when the letters t, p, c, h, x, and s, after another consonant, go before the infinitive an, the vowel before the terminating d is not only rejected, but d is changed into t; as from dyppan to dip would be regularly formed dypped dipped, contracted into dyppd, dyppt, and dypt dipped.
the Rune ᛞ not only represents the letter d, but stands for dæg
a day.
