G. bedhgad n. “wedlock” (Category: Wedding, Marriage)
A noun in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s appearing as G. bedhgad “wedlock”, a combination of the early root ᴱ√Beđ- for marriage words and G. gad “joint” (GL/22, 36). It replaced a more archaic form G. †bedhiod. It also had a variant form besgad whose origin is less clear, but I suspect it is a feminized variant based on G. bess “wife”.
