About Dight

“Dight” is an adjective based on the Old English verb “dihtan,” meaning “to set in order.”

Did you Know?

In its early history, “dight” was a verb meaning “to handle” or “to manage,” which translated over time as an approach to dressing. A person who cared about their appearance would carefully dight their clothes, hair, and accessories before leaving the house. From this verb came the later adjective “dight,” describing a person who has set their appearance in order. For example, “Jonathan emerged showered, shaved, and dight in fine evening clothes.”
