Word Origin & History

"capable of being done, accomplished or carried out," mid-15c., from Anglo-Fr. faisible, from O.Fr. faisible, from fais-, stem of faire "do, make," from L. facere "do, perform" (see factitious). Fowler recommends this word only for those "who feel that the use of an ordinary
word for an ordinary notion does not do justice to their vocabulary or sufficiently exhibit their cultivation." Related: Feasibility; feasibly.
