5. Reward: To ward is to deflect or guard (use rarely in verb form, usually in the phrase “ward off” to describe defending oneself from a blow). To reward is to pay for or to give in acknowledgment. Ward derives from the Old English term weard and the Anglo-French words warde and garde, all stemming from a proto-Germanic ancestor meaning “guard.” Reward stems from the Anglo-French terms regarder and rewarder, meaning “to care for, recompense.”
1. Rebate: To bate is to deduct or restrain, but the word, used rarely, usually is employed for the latter meaning, often in the jocular phrase “await with bated breath,” to indicate feigned excitement. Bate is a truncation of abate, which refers to deducting, depriving, moderating, or putting an end to something. To rebate, however, is to return part of a payment as an incentive. Bate is from the Anglo-French word abatre, meaning “to strike down”; rebate is from rebatre, which derives from abatre but means “to deduct.”
