gnide


From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48:

Gnide \Gnide\ (n[imac]d), v. t. [AS. gn[imac]dan.]
   To rub; to bruise; to break in pieces. [Obs.]
   [1913 Webster]

   Note: This word is found in Tyrwhitt's Chaucer, but
         improperly. The woed, though common in Old English,
         does not occur in Chaucer. --T. R. Lounsbury.
         [1913 Webster]
