What's that word for an illegitimate child?  All I can remember is that it starts with BAS.  Can anyone finish it for me?

Etymology of "tardity"

c.1386 (implied in tardity), from O.Fr. tardif (12c.), from V.L. *tardivus, from L. tardus "slow, sluggish, dull, stupid," of unknown origin.

Ad vindictam tardus

thought is was from retard (French for slow..)

Response 1)
Umm.....  O.Fr. is "Old French" and V.L. is "Vulgar Latin".  Both are roots of the french language.
Or are you going to start another Portuguese Moment on this one.

Are you trying to bait us?

I just can't see whether your making a statement or trying to bait someone with this response so I'll cover both bases.
