To DAST’ARDISE. v.a.

to-dastard-va

To DA’STARDISE. v.a. [from dastard.] To intimidate; to
deject with cowardice; to dispirit; to depress; to terrify; to
make an habitual coward.
He had such things to urge against our marriage,
As, now declar’d, would blunt my sword in battle,
And dastardise my courage. Dryden’s Don Sebastian.
